Extending Sympathy to Cowessess First Nation

2021-06-25T14:08:12-04:00

We are deeply saddened by the news of unmarked graves at the former Marieval Indian Residential School in Saskatchewan. We extend our sympathies to the families of these children, the community of Cowessess First Nation, and the families of the thousands of children who were sent to residential schools, many who never returned. At Trillium Lakelands District School Board (TLDSB), we commit to continuing our learning about the lives forever impacted by the residential school experience in Canada. We are inviting all members of our TLDSB school communities to wear orange at any time, as their acknowledgement of the loss of lives at [...]

Supporting our 2SLGBTQIA+ Community

2021-06-24T15:17:52-04:00

Officials at Trillium Lakelands District School Board (TLDSB) are aware and are working with local police to investigate recent hate-motivated vandalism at Huntsville Public School. Of deep concern is the removal and destruction of the pride flag from the school flag pole. This appalling and hateful act does not fit with our TLDSB commitment to respect and inclusion for all. This incident has caused harm in our community. An act of injustice against the two-spirit, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, asexual plus (2SLGBTQIA+) community is an act of injustice against us all. The progress pride flag is flying at all schools across [...]

2021-06-09T11:05:13-04:00

After careful consideration and consultation with local public health, Trillium Lakelands District School Board (TLDSB) has determined that graduations will remain virtual for the 2020-2021 school year.
