First Nation, Metis and Inuit Education


The Government of Canada started the process of Truth & Reconciliation about four years ago. In 2014, the Alberta Government made a commitment to further Truth and Reconciliation in this province, partly through education.



As of September 2019 it will be mandatory for all teachers to embed Indigenous teachings into the Kindergarten to Grade 12 Curriculum. This will include content specific to First Nation, Metis and Inuit perspectives and experiences, as well as content on the significance of residential schools and treaties. An important first step to understanding why these changes are taking place is participation in a blanket exercise.


OLMP School Council will be hosting a community blanket exercise on Tuesday, March 19th from 6:30 - 9:00pm. Any parents interested in attending can email Mrs. Smith at kristys@eics.ab.ca to register. Space is limited.


OLMP School will also be hosting an Indigenous Awareness Day on March 13th which will include an opening ceremony, sessions throughout the day and a closing ceremony. Any OLMP Indigenous (First Nation, Metis, or Inuit) families interested in attending all or part of that day or who are interested in running a session are welcome to contact Mrs. Smith to get involved in this day of awareness and cultural celebration of the first people of this land - Treaty 6.

**AS A SAFETY PRECAUTION**

PLEASE STAY CLEAR FROM BUS LANES AT THE BEGINNING AND END OF THE SCHOOL DAY


**PLEASE USE CAUTION IF ACCESSING THE STAFF PARKING LOT AS WELL**

Inclement weather procedure

The suggested guideline for extreme weather is that students do not go outside if the temperature is - 25 C or colder. We also keep an eye on the windchill factor as well, especially when wind chill exceeds -20 C. The suggested guideline is at the discretion of school administration and staff as part of their consideration for determining whether recess will be inside or outside.


We recognize the obvious importance of outside recess and extended physical literacy. The health and safety of students is a paramount consideration in the organization of outdoor activities.


**PLEASE MAKE SURE YOUR CHILD IS DRESSED APPROPRIATELY FOR THE WEATHER**
