Ojibwe School Closing Notice: The Ojibwe School has closed it's campus for students and visitors for the rest of the 2019/20 school year. It was hard to make the decision to close our campus because we all want to see our students, families and coworkers before the end of the school year. However, we need to keep people safe and healthy. We will continue Distance Learning until June 5, 2020. Distance Learning is not perfect or ideal for our students, but it's the best we can do in this crisis.
