The Lambton Kent District School Board looks forward to welcoming students for the start of the school year on Tuesday, September 8. With student and staff health and safety as our top priorities, the plan for the LKDSB's September 2020 school re-entry will provide a safe launch to the upcoming school year and reduce the opportunities for transmission of COVID-19. The plans incorporate the most current information from the Ontario Ministry of Education, Public Health, consultation with LKDSB educators and education workers, and our communities.
To support the transition to a possible school re-entry in September, LKDSB has created Frequently Asked Questions for elementary and secondary return to school. Based on the information known to date, this outlines key information regarding the following: school year and timelines; the school experience for students; risk mitigation; and getting organized for the 2020-2021 school year. Please note: These plans are not confirmed. Final plans will be shared the week of August 10, 2020.

The LKDSB continues to be in close contact with the Ministry of Education as we develop plans for the possible reopening to students in September. The LKDSB is awaiting confirmation from the Ministry of Education on its plans for September, which are expected to be communicated later this week, and we will continue to seek guidance from the local Medical Officers of Health as LKDSB plans are finalized.
We appreciate your ongoing support to ensure positive transitions and safe and welcoming school environments for students and staff.
