CLASSES CANCELED

WEEK OF JUNE 14-18, 2021

Due to the spike of positive COVID-19 cases in our community, and confirmed cases at the school, a decision was made to CANCEL IN PERSON CLASSES for ALL STUDENTS for the final week of classes for the 2020-21 School Year.

All classes will move to an On-Line format for this upcoming week, June 14 - 18. Teachers will contact students to discuss school wind down processes, distribution of student belongings, report cards, and ensuring there is one final opportunity to connect with students before the end of the year.

This latest spike of Covid -19 cases and increasing transmission rates in our community is very concerning and we want to ensure that safety remains our top priority.

On behalf of BCNEA and OPK we wish everyone good health. We hope you have a wonderful summer and can’t wait to welcome students back in the fall.

Please contact the principals directly if you have any questions at (780) 891-3830

CONTACT INFORMATION

Welcome to Bigstone Cree Nation Education Authority website.

We are in the process of building some new content and anticipate re-launching later this year ... Covid-19 through a bit of wrench in our development process.

The Bigstone Cree Nation Education Authority serves the members of Bigstone Cree Nation in Wabasca-Desmarais, Alberta with a variety of Education services. Our primary responsibility is the administration of Oski Pasikoniwew Kamik (OPK) that offers programming for students K-Grade 9. We are eagerly anticipating our new High School facility that was recently approved by the Federal Government. We are in the early planning stages and will be releasing more information here soon. With the addition of a High School Program we will be able to serve our nation with a complete range of educational services!
