We look forward to a safe start to the 2020-2021 school year. This year might look a bit different, but we are looking forward to supporting a safe and welcoming school year for all students and staff.
The Lambton Kent District School Board's (LKDSB) Reopening Our Schools plan is a multi-layered approach with various safety measures to mitigate opportunities for the transmission of COVID-19. The plan for a safe return to school is a shared responsibility between LKDSB staff, local Public Health, family households, students and Chatham-Kent Lambton Administrative School Services (CLASS). By collectively implementing the plan, our schools will be safe for our students and staff.
Student and staff health and safety are the top priorities for the LKDSB. As we begin the 2020-2021 school year, LKDSB is prepared to respond to changes, as necessary, based on directions from the Ministry and provincial and local Medical Officers of Health.
