As you know from the CBE and AHS messaging over the summer, we are doing everything possible to prepare for a safe and healthy return to school. Our School Calendar with school hours is available here: LBS 2020 – 2021. Our school-specific re-entry plan can be found on our Back to School page under 'Resources' on the right side bar. Here Staggered Start to School YearWe are beginning our school year by limiting the number of students entering the school over the first three days of September. The purpose of this plan is:To ease the transition of students into school,To spend time with smaller groups familiarizing them with our health measures,To facilitate physical distancing while teaching the protocols of our health measures.Due to bussing, staggered entry days are a full day of school.If you have not heard from a teacher by Friday August 28 please contact LakeBonavista@cbe.ab.ca and we will send you a room number to meet at on your staggered entry day.
