As you know, this year has been an exceptional challenge for everyone across our province, country and world.
We are also aware that we have asked our students to be incredibly adaptable and resilient as restrictions on mask wearing, in-school learning and blended learning change from day to day. We want to take this opportunity to share our gratitude with our students.
We are experiencing some very unusual early hot weather. Due to the continued heat warnings and temperatures forecast for certain regions of our district, the following will be the plan for ASD-N on Tuesday, June 8th:
Each year, on September 30th, ASD-N staff and students are invited to participate in “Orange Shirt Day”. This day is designed to educate and bring awareness to Canadians about the Canadian Indian residential school system that existed in our country and the impact it has had on Indigenous Communities and people for more than a century.
With recent news regarding the former Kamloops Indian Residential School, ASD-N would like to renew awareness.
