For the information of CMSD82 parents and guardians in the Hazelton and Kitwanga areas.

Please note that the bus runs in Hazelton and Kitwanga have been cancelled for today, January 17.  The main highway is fine and there are no official road closures.  However school district staff and our bus provider feel that the side roads leading to the main highway will be too icy for buses to travel in the morning.  Hazelton and Kitwanga Schools are open for students to attend.  School District Staff will continue to monitor the situation throughout the rest of this week.

Parents/guardians should contact their School Principal should they have any further questions.


The students and staff of Majagaleehl Gali Aks Elementary School extend an invitation to all to join them for Gweey’ya 2017 on Tuesday, January 31, 2017 from 1:15 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. in the school gym.  This event is a fundraiser towards a mural for the school stage.  Donations are welcome!

For more information, please contact Cindy Sousa, Majagaleehl Gali Aks Elementary School Principal at (250) 842-5313.
