RE: Gaagagekiizhik Elementary School and Bimose Community High School response to COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

The Ministry of Education released a statement that all Ontario Schools will be closed for the remainder of this school year. As news comes in about how the new school year will look and a start date, we will let all our families know.

We would also like to say Miigwech to all our students and their families for your continued support during this time.

Please take time to read some preventative measures to help keep your family safe and decrease the spreads of the COVID-19 virus:

  • Wash your hands often and well – hot water, soap and a duration of at least 20 seconds are the three critical steps (Singing the ABC’s a good time frame)
  • Use alcohol-based hand sanitizer when hand washing is not available
  • Cover coughs and sneezes with your sleeve or tissue
  • Clean frequently touched surfaces and objects
  • Avoid touching your face unless you have just washed your hands
  • Stay home if you or your child are sick

If you have any questions, please call the following numbers:

For Elementary:
Wendy McPherson – Principal
(807) 548-4912 ext. 102

For Highschool:
Darcy Wickham – Principal
(807) 548-4912 ext. 110
