2020-2021 school pictures delayed indefinitely

To all YK1 families: 2020-2021 school pictures will be delayed indefinitely following a recommendation from the GNWT’s Department of Education, Culture and Employment (ECE). Lifetouch Photography  was contracted to take school pictures this year, but YK1 has decided to delay this service since photographers would have to travel to the Northwest Territories from Alberta. YK1 schools are already limiting access to visitors amid the COVID-19 pandemic, so it makes sense to apply this rule to third party photographers as well. Other NWT school boards have made similar decisions so that there’s a level of consistency across the territory. YK1 continues to explore other options for taking school pictures this year. We thank families for their patience and understanding. If you have any questions, please email yk1@yk1.nt.ca.
