Schools in the Fort Vermilion School Division lowered flags to half-mast today to honour the passing of one of their own. Mr. Rees, a teacher at Buffalo Head Prairie School, was involved in a sporting activity with friends when he suddenly passed away on Monday evening. The Fort Vermilion School Division placed Support Teams in schools and offered support for students, staff, and communities. These supports will continue to be in place for as long as necessary.
If you have any questions, please feel free to call the school. Thank you for your patience and understanding through this difficult time.
