COVID-19 (Coronavirus) - Update and Additional Measures

March 13, 2020

Update March 17, 2020

After receiving permission from the Minister of Education's office, and in collaboration with many of our communities, all Frontier School Division classes will be suspended as soon as possible, but no later than the end of Tuesday, March 17, 2020. At this time we anticipate that classes will resume on Monday, April 13, 2020. 

It is the Division's expectation that staff will continue with their duties but are afforded the opportunity to work from home. Should people choose this option, they must consult with their Supervisor, maintain communication, and remain available during their normal working hours. 

All teachers should prepare a 15-day substitute plan as a proactive step. 

These are unprecedented times, and as we learn more, directives may change. Please check frequently with your email and immediate Supervisor in order to stay apprised of any further updates. You are also encouraged to monitor our social media channels. 

Below is a list of resources about health and safety to help prevent the spread of Covid-19. You can also find links to previous memos and our social media channels.
