Written by on March 22, 2020

Kahnawake schools under the Kahnawake Education Center (KEC) will remain closed through May 1, 2020. This follows the announcement by Quebec that the schools will remain closed until that time.

Lloyd Phillips, the Commissioner of Public Safety in Kahnawake, was happy to see the latest moves by the Quebec Government. Premier Francois Legault announced the closure of all Malls, as well as restaurants seating areas. They can only remain open for pick up and delivery.

“Kahnawake has been one step ahead of Quebec,” Phillips said.

Phillips announced there are no further measures for today. However, the Kahnawake Covid-19 Task Force will continue to meet and adjust as need be for the safety of the community. Robin Delaronde is the Director of education at the KEC, she says they will be meeting on Monday to discuss ways to support the students during this prolonged shutdown.

She also reminded people to stay home unless absolutely necessary and continue to practice social distancing.
