To limit the spread of COVID-19, students are learning at home while in-school classes are cancelled. Teachers are following alternative instruction plans—through Google Classroom, telephone conversations and ongoing assignment submissions—to ensure learning is relevant for all students, offers valuable structure to their day, and provides the them with resources needed to successfully transition to the next school year.

To help make the shift in learning as smooth as possible, EIPS has developed this Alternative Learning toolkit for families and students. Throughout, you’ll find information about learning resources, supplemental lessons, tips on navigating Google Classroom, strategies to supporting students, and more. In addition to learning supports, the toolkit also lists various mental health resources families can access to help navigate the global COVID-19 pandemic.

Moose Hide, Episode 1

This week we would like to share with you the first steps in preparing a moose hide. Thank you to Elder Wilson for his teachings and to the Metis hunter Harold who harvested the moose. We are also grateful for the moose itself for giving us his life, his meat to sustain us and his hide so we can learn and share.
