March 2020 Update: Classes Cancelled

Hello LBS Families,

Please know that we are missing you and hoping you are doing well. Thank you for your understanding and patience as we navigate this new situation. 

We have made arrangements for student personal belongings to be picked up, if needed. If belongings in the school are needed before your scheduled time, please call the school: 403-777-6871 ex 0. Personal belongings include indoor shoes, water bottles, or items brought from home. Student supplies and materials such as workbooks, folders, pencils, scissors, etc. will remain at the school. Where possible, belongings have been gathered, bagged and labelled.

During these scheduled times, we would also like parents to return any library books, and a drop-off bin will be set up for you to do so. This opportunity is only in place if items are needed. If you do not feel the need to come into the school, please do not.

As per World Health and Alberta Health recommendation, we need to mitigate contact between one another as much as possible.  For that reason, staff will not be available to meet with families for any reason. We understand how disconcerting this is for many families. Although unfortunate, it is not advisable or possible given the current pandemic.


We ask that parents come to the front door, during the time slots allotted to them.

Tuesday March 17 and Wednesday March 18​​  
8:00 am - 2:45 pm  Student Last names: A - L

Wednesday March 18 and Thursday March 19​​   ​
8:00 am - 2:45 pm  Student Last Names M – Z

Please do not come to school if you are ill with respiratory illness symptoms (fever, cough, fatigue, and/or muscle aches). Alternate times to pick up student personal belongings will be made at a later time if you are currently ill or self-isolating. Also, please limit the number of family members coming into the building.

The CBE is working with Alberta Education and school authorities across the province to develop consistent provincial programming. This information will be communicated to you, as soon as it is available.

Thank you for all the kind messages of support. Our teachers are overwhelmed with messages of gratitude. We are thinking of all our students and families and will be in touch with further details as they become available.  Continue to monitor your email.

Continue to check the CBE main site and our school website for updates. AHS and 811 continue to be our best resources for health information and questions.

Our best next steps are to remember to be kind, compassionate and patient with ourselves and others.​

In kindness and gratitude,
