The Board of Education of the North East School Division mourns for those who were discovered buried in unmarked graves near the former Marieval Indian Residential School site and recognizes the shock, sadness and impact that this event is having in our community. 

The North East School Division vows to stand with our Treaty Six, Five and Four friends, neighbours and colleagues to seek truth and to find reconciliation in a better future for our children and our communities.
