We recognize that the increase in the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases this weekend raises several questions and concerns. CÉF is in constant communication with the Ministry of Education and follows the recommendations of Saskatchewan’s Chief Medical Health Officer regarding school closure options.

We expect everyone who is not feeling well to stay home and monitor for possible symptoms of COVID-19. We also invite parents to continue to report their child's absence from school.

As a precaution, the parent-student-teacher meetings that were to take place on Thursday, March 19 are postponed to a later date.

2016-2017 School Year Welcome Message: from the desk of CÉF joint co-executive directors

Dear Parents,

Let us welcome you back on occasion of the CÉF's inauguration of the 2016-2017 school year. You will find that our school staff is genuinely involved in the educational mission of the CÉF, which is committed to the academic success of your child. In our schools, you will meet other parents like you who want the best education for their children, not only in French first language, but also the very best education available anywhere in Saskatchewan.

The considerable reduction of the CÉF's long-term debt and the adoption by the Francophone school Board of a balanced budget in 2016-2017, will allow the organization to begin the school year in a context that will better enable it to fulfill its mission than it has been in the recent past.
