The Lambton Kent District School Board (LKDSB) is looking forward to welcoming students and staff for in-person learning in September 2022. Our experience throughout the past couple of years has reinforced that in-person learning best meets the needs of the majority of our students to remain engaged and be successful, as well as provides a connection and sense of belonging for them.
All students will be registered for in-person learning for September 2022. If your child will be attending in-person learning for the 2022-2023 school year, no further action is required. If you are interested in virtual learning for your child for the 2022-2023 school year, please see the information below.
LKDSB is committed to supporting students to learn in the manner that best meets their needs and circumstances and will provide virtual learning programming for both elementary and secondary students (Kindergarten to Grade 12) as enrolment numbers permit for the 2022-2023 school year.
In order to support planning and staffing decisions, the LKDSB is asking families to sign-up for virtual learning for the 2022-2023 school year by March 25, 2022.
If your child is currently enrolled in virtual learning programming, you will receive an email to confirm whether or not your child will be registered in virtual learning programming for the 2022-2023 school year. If your child is not currently enrolled in virtual learning programming, please contact your child's school to complete the registration. Only those students who complete the form will be registered for virtual learning in September 2022. All others will be registered at their home school.
Important Note: In order to promote stability within classrooms, enrolment in the virtual learning program is intended to be a permanent year-long commitment. Families will not be able to opt-in or out of in-person and virtual learning during the 2022-2023 school year (exceptions would be considered on a case-by-case basis and accommodation would be based on space availability and may vary school-to-school and grade-by-grade). Students will be registered as McNaughton Avenue Public School (elementary) and Lambton Kent Composite School (secondary) students. Students enrolled in the virtual learning programming will not be associated with their home school, including graduation.
