Lockerby Composite School Reopening Guidelines

 

We hope all is well with you and your family during these unprecedented times.  We recognize that all families continue to face many challenges.  We are certainly excited for the start of the new school year, and with it comes many new challenges.  Know that we understand the needs of our Viking Community and we are doing our best to meet the challenges in keeping our students safe and engaged in their learning.  Lockerby Composite School has been exploring creative means, with all of its staff members, to make face-to-face and remote learning a positive experience for all.  Our overarching goal is to support our Viking students by providing opportunities for them to demonstrate overall expectations of their courses, while fostering and creating a supportive learning environment to build a sense of belonging.  Based on Rainbow District School Board’s Reopening Guidelines, and at this time, please know that we are sharing the following information:

  • a presentation to students that includes new school procedures, overviews of health and safety protocols, and school-year programming expectations
