The Lambton Kent District School Board (LKDSB) and St. Clair Catholic District School Board (SCCDSB) are looking to gather information from parents and guardians regarding plans for the reopening of schools in September.
Both school boards will reopen in September with a return to full-time, in-class learning with enhanced safety measures.
LKDSB and SCCDSB are looking to gather feedback from families about their intentions regarding the return to school in September.
Each board has developed a survey with one question:
The Minister of Education has directed that elementary and secondary schools in the Lambton Kent and St. Clair Catholic district school boards will reopen in September with full-time in person classroom learning, with enhanced safety measures. Will your child:
- Return to school for in-person classroom learning; or
- Participate in online teacher-led learning at home.
Parents/guardians will have one week to complete the survey.

After Aug. 28, there will be limited opportunities within the school year for parents or guardians to switch their child’s school experience from electronic to face-to-face instruction.
Families must notify the school in advance and there will be a waiting period prior to their child’s admission to school, depending on scheduling and availability of classroom space.
The survey link will be emailed directly to parents or guardians this week using an email address on file.
LKDSB: Parents or guardians who do not have an email address on file should contact their school principal. Visit www.lkdsb.net for each school’s contact information.
“We understand there is a lot of uncertainty regarding what school will look like in September for students. Please be assured that as we develop plans, our top priorities are the health and safety of Lambton Kent District School Board students and staff. We appreciate the input of parents and guardians to guide our decisions for the 2020-2021 school year,” said John Howitt, Director of Education for Lambton Kent District School Board.
SCCDSB: Parents or guardians who do not have an email address on file should contact the Board at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 1-866-336-6139 and press 2. Individual school contact information is available at www.st-clair.net under the ‘Our Schools’ page.
“It is important that we hear from our parents or guardians, as we continue to develop our plans. Our goal is to provide an excellent learning experience for all St. Clair Catholic students, in school environments that promote health, safety and well-being for all,” Deb Crawford, director of education for St. Clair Catholic, said.
