There were children filing through the halls of the elementary school in La Tuesday for the first time in a month.
Classes were cancelled after two adults were fatally shot and seven others wounded on January 22 in the northern Saskatchewan village.Education Minister Don Morgan, who has visited the community four times since the tragedy took place, was at the school Tuesday.
He says it’s been challenging, yet rewarding to see the community work together to get the children back to school.
Along with Morgan, the Saskatchewan education minister, Justice Minister Gord Wyant and Advanced Education Minister Scott Moe met with town council, teachers and victim services , and attended the open house and cultural event.
High school students in the village of about 3,000 people are scheduled to return to classes on Friday.
The kindergarten to Grade 6 elementary school, with about 500 students, will have security guards in the building throughout the day.
