There are no classes in La Loche Monday in the wake of a sombre anniversary.
On Sunday, the remote community privately marked one year since a shooting that killed two staff and wounded seven others in the high school.
Two teenage brothers were also killed in a nearby home.
Classes were also cancelled Friday due to an anonymous threat RCMP later determined was a hoax.
The prime minister and the premier both paid tribute to the community. Justin Trudeau said in a statement Sunday that La Loche has inspired the whole country with its resilience, determination to rebuild and optimism for a better future.
Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall said in a separate statement that all of Saskatchewan wept with La Loche after the shooting.
“We witnessed an unimaginable event in a place where young people go to learn and be nurtured by teachers and teacher-aides who have a passion for them,” he wrote on Facebook.
Wall thanked community leaders for being on the front lines helping people cope with the tragedy, and restated his government’s commitment to improving mental health services and programs for the remote community.
