In an effort to promote a safer return to school after the winter break, Nbisiing will be providing a take-home rapid antigen screening kit to all students on behalf of the Government of Ontario. The rapid antigen screening kits are intended for use by any student that attends a First Nation's school, regardless of vaccination status. 
Please note, your child's participation in this rapid antigen screening is voluntary. Students are not required to participate in order to return to the classroom after the winter break.
