UPDATE: 2020-2021 YK1 school pictures

To all YK1 families: In mid-September we announced that 2020-2021 school pictures would be delayed indefinitely based on a recommendation from the GNWT’s Department of Education, Culture and Employment. Lifetouch Photography was contracted to take school pictures this year, but YK1 decided to delay this service since photographers would have to travel to the Northwest Territories from Alberta, and because schools are limiting access to visitors amid the COVID-19 pandemic. At this time, YK1 plans on honouring its existing agreement with Lifetouch Photography, but only once the Office of the Chief Public Health Officer approves a plan for them to enter the territory and our schools safely. The company has provided us with a rough timeline of February 2021 for this service. YK1 will endeavour to share more concrete details as soon as they become available. Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding, and please do not hesitate to email yk1@yk1.nt.ca if you have any further questions.
