JK-12 Education Program Update – COVID-19 Action
March 25, 2020
Dear Parents / Guardians, Staff, and Students
The Tłı̨chǫ Community Services Agency is taking proactive steps to address the COVID-19 pandemic implications for schools and all other program areas.
Due to the serious health concerns posed by COVID-19 and the importance of following direction from the Chief Public Health Officer on social distancing as a way to keep children and families safe, the TCSA Board has agreed with the recommendation from Minister Simpson that schools be closed for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year.
As such, all TCSA schools will be closed through to the end of the current school year.
The TCSA Board, Education Leaders from across the NWT, and the Minister of Education recognize the impact school closures have on students, parents, staff, and communities, and have agreed to support continued learning for all students, especially those in Grade 12, to achieve their education and career goals.
We will provide you with updates as they become available through our TCSA website and Facebook pages, the Tłı̨chǫ Government website and Facebook page, and other media as appropriate.
If you have any questions or concerns please email TCSA@tlicho.net
