Dear Yellowknife Education District No. 1 (YK1) families:

The upcoming 2020-2021 school year will not be a return to normal for education staff and students in the Northwest Territories. In order to ensure the health and safety of our students and educational staff, schools will be taking strong action to meet the recommendations of the Chief Public Health Officer, while providing a blended learning approach that will prioritize in-person learning wherever possible, and support at-home distance learning where required.” - R.J. Simpson, Minister of Education, Culture and Employment (ECE).

In understanding that school will not return to normal, YK1 continues to work collaboratively with ECE  and the Northwest Territories Teachers' Association to plan for reopening, taking into account the outlined restrictions. In order to move forward, we are seeking additional information that needs to be considered during this planning stage.
