LLRIB Education will be reopening the 2020-2021 school year with a weekly Blended Learning Model in place. All LLRIB students will be placed into two groups: Group A and Group B. Group A will attend one week and Group B will continue Distance Learning; the following week they will alternate. The purpose for the week in class and week at home is to allow for proper contact tracing and cleaning between groups. Groups will be divided based on family connections to support our families who may have children in different schools who care for younger siblings. You will receive a group assignment and calendar indicating which week your child is to attend.
Please see the attached document which provides a quick overview of the changes that have occurred in our reopen planning. We are requesting that parents and community members do not enter the building with your child and that your child use the entry and exit doors that are indicated at their schools. If your child is taking the bus, please let your child know that they will have their temperature checked when they enter, they are to use hand sanitizer, wear a mask and they are to sit in their assigned seating. When possible, please walk or drive your child to school.
If you are still concerned about the safety of your child and would like to know the alternative options that you have as a parent, please see the quick guide below.
School Re-Opening Plan
Weekly Learning Groups Alternating Week Schedules: • Students are selected based on their ability to Socially Distance. • Students are placed in groups that support student success, and students who are in the same households. • Students will attend one week for in person classroom instruction and will participate in Distance Learning on their alternative week. • If the same group of students are in attendance for an entire week, this will allow for faster Contact Tracing and an allowable time to show symptoms if they are unwell.
The 2020 Youth Haven Summer Camp Program is starting once again and we would love for your child to join us!

If you are interested in sending your child to Youth Haven, applications can be picked up at the LLRIB Office in the Education Department. For more information, please contact Jodi Hancheroff with the information given. • No overnight trips this year

Under normal circumstances, today would mark the start of another Blue Jays season. While we’re all disappointed that we can’t join together at Rogers Centre with our incredible fans and supporters, we believe that it is essential to stay connected. Baseball is, at its core, about community. We at Jays Care just released a video piece, narrated by Sportsnet’s Jamie Campbell, on our social media platforms celebrating baseball, community, and the importance of staying together—today and over the coming weeks. If you see a fit, we encourage you to share the post on your personal and organizational channels to help us spread our message of togetherness and community.
Earlier this week, Jays Care also launched daily challenges to help give kids across Canada fun and educational activities they can do from home. We are excited to announce that these challenges are now available on our website through the link below and will be updated weekly. We encourage all Canadian kids and families to take part in our challenges to stay active while families stay at home.
