For immediate release

Kahnawà:ke Education Center (KEC) (Kahnawà:ke, Quebec – 1 Kenténha/October 2020) As our community moves into a “Red Alert Level”, under the guidance of the Kahnawà:ke Task Force, the Kahnawà:ke Education Center will begin shifting education services to full remote learning for most of our students.

  • We assure our parents and students that our three schools will be accessible to school staff to provide services or conduct lessons via zoom from their designated classroom location.
  • There will be periods identified when students can come into the school. (I.e. formal exams – school gymnasium, labs, IEP review, or resource supports).
  • Our two elementary schools will provide an educational daycare service for our Nursery-Grade 6 students.
  • KSS will provide on-site services to students of parents who are essential workers. Parents do need to make a request for this service.
  • Students and families who are experiencing connectivity problems will have a designated location set up for them to partake in remote learning until they are able to secure connectivity in their residence.
  • Week of October 5th (Schools begin planning for the transition to remote learning)
    • KSS begins remote learning for most students.
    • Monday and Tuesday – KSS students will not attend school, however, will have assignments uploaded by their teachers.
    • Only identified classrooms/groups will be attending school on-site.
    • Wednesday and Thursday – KSS remote classes resume.
    • Online student support services are implemented.
    • Elementary students remain in school.
    • Home-Learning Program continues as planned.
    • Contact parents regarding tech needs (elementary).
    • Compile a list of parents who require essential on-site services (both schools).
    • Identify and inform parents that their child is eligible for on-site instruction.

    • KSS continues remote learning.
