THUNDER BAY – Weather in Sachigo Lake is finally allowing flights to come in. Students from Dennis Franklin Cromarty High School had been on standby over the weekend awaiting suitable flying conditions to depart from Thunder Bay.
Today, the first flight left Thunder Bay with nine students via North star Air.
The North Star Air flight after arrival will then return to Thunder Bay.
Dennis Franklin Cromarty (DFC) students have been participating in a number of activities over the weekend, and school officials have been in constant contact with parents, Sachigo Lake Chief and Council, and local boarding families.
Right now, the Dennis Franklin Cromarty staff, and professionals are working together to guide and assist the students and staff.
UPDATE: There are reportedly some people who have concluded that Dennis Franklin Cromarty High School is closing and all the students are headed home – That rumour is simply that, a rumour. Students are headed home for time with family, with their community, and for time to heal.
