Information for parents/guardians, students and staff regarding legalization of cannabis

​With the legalization of cannabis on October 17, 2018, the Ontario Government provides rules that keep cannabis out of the hands of children and youth, and keep our roads safe. 

Ontario will have laws in place about how, where and who can buy and possess cannabis in the province.  The Lambton Kent District School Board also continues to prohibit cannabis and other related products.  

Students, staff and visitors continue to be prohibited from smoking or vaping on school grounds. This includes the smoking or holding of lighted tobacco and cannabis (marijuana), and includes a ban on the use of e-cigarettes and electronic smoking devices.  

Students, staff and visitors are also prohibited from using shisha, smokeless tobacco and/or cannabis products (unless medically prescribed), and all related accessories. This code of conduct is in effect 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and on school buses, or during any part of an official school field trip, including athletic team trips and school club excursions.  

Failure to comply with the code of conduct may result in internal student discipline (e.g., warning, notification to parents, withdrawal of privileges, suspension, etc.), and/or charges and fines issued by an Officer of a Provincial Enforcement Agency.

Read the LKDSB's Alcohol and Drugs Policy and Regulation and Smoke-Free Environment Administrative Procedure.

Remember that Queen Elizabeth II is a:

Peanut and Nut Safe Environment and Strawberry-free.

Due to severe allergies of students attending Queen Elizabeth, we are requesting that no nut products be brought to the school.  We need your cooperation to ensure the safety of all our students.   Please refrain sending food containing any nut products (all nuts, not just peanuts) to school with your child.  Please read food labels carefully to ensure there are no nuts or nut traces listed in the ingredients.  We thank you for your co-operation in making our school a safe place for all students.

Shrimp Free School 

We have individuals in the school that are highly allergic to shrimp. We are asking that no shrimp products be brought to school.
