JANUARY 13, 2021 – DEAR PARENTS, GUARDIANS AND COMMUNITY MEMBERS

As you are aware Kitaski has been declared an outbreak by LLRIB Health and LLRIB. We are asking for everyone to be extra vigilant. Protect yourself, your family and others by following the Public Health precautionary guidelines and ensuring that we all do our part in preventing the spread of the virus.

LLRJB Internal council has approved all schools close for in-person programming for LLRJB schools in the communities ofKjtsaki (Bell’s Point Elementary School, Senator Myles Venne School), Hall Lake (Sally Ross School) and Sucker River (Chief Moses Ratt School). All schools will be implementing Distance Learning until the outbreak is declared over.

At this time, it is not known when the outbreak will be lifted, we will operate on a week-by-week basis. We ask you contact the schools every Friday for an update for the following week. We also ask you routinely check our social media sites for updates. Staff will be at the school to answer any phone calls if you have any questions.

If you or your child or family member that resides with you are experiencing any COVID19 symptoms, please contact the Health Line at 811 and stay home as advised. If medical attention is required, please call your health care provider ahead of time. If it is an emergency call 911. LLRIB members are asked to contact the Jeanie Bird Memorial Clinic for any questions @ (306)425-1720.

We are here to support your family and we appreciate your understanding and help to work together to decrease the spread ofCOVID19.

Thank you for keeping our children, elders and community members safe. Sincerely,

Housing Department – Rent Deferrals for Tenants in Band Housing

Housing Department – Rent Deferrals for Tenants in Band Housing

Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic and the financial difficulties it brings, the Lac La Ronge Indian Band’s Housing Department will be offering optional rent deferrals for tenants paying rent in Band housing. Those tenants that wish to defer (postpone) their rent payments for 3 months, will be allowed to do so.

• The rent deferral period covers rent payments regularly scheduled for April 1, May 1 and June 1, 2020.
• Tenants that exercise this deferral option will be required to enter into a Repayment Agreement from July 01, 2020 to March 31, 2021.
• Tenants are still responsible for payment of deferred rent.
• Existing repayment agreements may also be deferred to July 2020 upon request.
• Band employees who pay rent via payroll deduction will have the deduction suspended for the above-mentioned period.
• Tenants wanting to continue rent payments and/or payroll deductions may do so.
• Housing will not issue rent reminders or enforce evictions for non-payment during the deferral period.
• Rent payments will not be accepted until the Housing office reopens to the public at a later date.
• Housing staff will be contacting all tenants once the office is open.
• Depending on how the pandemic progresses, Housing and Internal Council may extend this deferral period.
• Questions and concerns can be directed to the emails below and/or the Housing office when it has reopened to the public.

Lac La Ronge Indian Band Internal Council Donates $30,000 to Kikinahk Friendship Center

On the morning of Tuesday January 12 Chief Tammy Cook-Searson presented a cheque on behalf of La Ronge Internal Council to Ron Woytowich, Director of Kikinahk Friendship Center and Danielle Debruyne, president of Kikinahk Friendship Center.

The cheque was in the amount of $30,000 and is intended to assist the Scattered Sites project as well as the homeless shelter in purchasing meals and to hire more staff so the center can extend its hours.

“Scattered Sites provides an essential service for the most vulnerable individuals from our communities by providing meals and a warm place to gather. We are very pleased that this service is available for our Band members. We’re very happy to be able to provide some support to these initiatives, we need to continue to work together to help those who need the support.”
The donated funds are expected to last until the end of March 2021.
