Grounding Exercises- A helpful video from our FSLC, Karen Manzer. Check it out!

As parents, students, and families adjust to new conditions and learning environments because of COVID-19, we want everyone to stay well physically, emotionally, and intellectually.

Our professionals have curated resources to help families: tools to help structure your days at home, fun activities to do online, ideas for staying physically active, positive mental health strategies and hotline phone numbers, emergency & financial support contacts, and supports for First Nations, Metis, and Inuit families. 

Explore Resources for Parents During COVID-19 School Closure and share it with your family and neighbours. We're all in this together. And LRSD is here for you.

Student Assessment

Fire and Lockdown Drills

Fire Drills

Fire drills are held for the safety and well-being of both staff and students.  These drills are held throughout the year; students are aware of the dates and times of the first three drills, any remaining drills are unnannounced.   Upon the fire alarm sounding, under the direction of a school staff member, students make there way to the nearest exit and gather in a pre-determined area.  If a secondary gathering site is required, students will be directed to a  pre-determined location.

Lockdown Drills

Lockdown drills are held throughout the year; students, staff and parents are aware of the times and dates of the first three drills, any remaining drills are unannounced.  External or internal threats may require the school to perform lockdown procedures.  Staff explain and practice lockdown procedures with students throughout the school year.
