School Closure Reminder

This is a reminder to parents and students that the Alaqsite’w Gitpu School facilities will be closed for the remainder of the school year (2019/20). Home learning will continue as scheduled. If you have questions or concerns, please email AGS Principal Jeff Grass at

On Monday, April 27, 2020, Quebec Premier François Legault announced that students will be returning to classes beginning May 11 in regions less impacted by COVID-19, outside of Montreal. The Listuguj Mi’gmaq Government (LMG) has decided that it is in the best interest of students and staff to remain closed for the following reasons:

  • Health and safety of community members
  • Inter-provincial travel restrictions 
  • Ongoing success of home learning

The health and safety of our community remains a top priority for the LMG. We are asking for community members, residents, and LMG employees to continue practicing social distancing and to limit outings when possible to prevent the spread of COVID-19. As always, the LMG will provide continuous updates as the pandemic unfolds. Please refer to the LMG website and social media pages for up-to-date information on Listuguj’s Response to COVID-19.
