Urgent Message regarding Child Care Operations / EarlyON and support services in School Facilities March 14-April 6, 2020 from LKDSB:
Yesterday afternoon the Ontario government announced that all publicly-funded schools are ordered closed for two weeks following March break, in an effort to contain the spread of the COVID-19 virus. This means all Ontario schools will remain closed from March 14, 2020 through until April 5, 2020.
The health, safety and well-being of students and staff are the Boards’ highest priorities. In consideration of this announcement, the LKDSB and SCCDSB have collaboratively decided that all of their school facilities will be closed to third parties during this same period. Child care operations will not be permitted within school facilities March 14, 2020 through until April 5, 2020.
Child cares will not have access to school facilities effective end of their normal business hours today, Friday March 13, 2020 through until schools re-open on April 6, 2020. Please ensure all important items are removed from the building as no one will not be granted access to the building after closure today. (Ex: children’s medication, important belongings etc.)
We recognize the serious effect of this decision and regret the associated impact to families. The Boards encourages students, parent/guardians and staff to monitor news outlets, their websites: https://www.lkdsb.net and https://www.st-clair.net as well as their social media for further updates and information.
Lambton Rural Child Care will inform parents as more information become available to us! Also please check our Facebook Page @lambtonruralchildcare for updates. We thank you for your co-operation with this matter!
