Curve Lake First Nation delays school opening until October –

Students will learn from home until at least Oct. 5

Rather than take the risk, Curve Lake First Nation students will learn from home until October, when another assessment will take place to determine if it is safe for children to return to school.

The notice came late Friday (Aug. 21) from Education Manager Louise Musgrave. The statement outlines the reasons why a further extension is necessary during the pandemic. According to the statement, the delay will allow for at least two virus cycles of 14 days before the school opens.
