As we shared in January, the Limestone District School Board is offering families one final opportunity to opt students in or out of their current learning model to accommodate their individual needs and personal circumstances.

Elementary families wishing to move students in Kindergarten to Grade 8 from in-person learning to LDSB Virtual School must contact their current school. Elementary families wishing to move from LDSB Virtual School back to in-person learning must notify the in-person school they would normally attend. Any elementary family looking to change their student’s learning model must do so before 4 p.m., Friday, February 19, 2021. Once schools determine staffing needs, and if space is available, approved changes would take effect during the week of Monday March 8, 2021.

Secondary families with students in Grades 9 to 12 wishing to make a change should do so before the end/beginning of each block/octomester by contacting their home school. Students cannot change once a block/octomester has begun. A list of block/octomester dates is available on the board website. Students will be transferred if space is available.

We will accommodate moves between models of learning if there is available space in the class/school. While we will try to accommodate all requests, it is important to note that due to class-size limits, students moving from virtual learning to in-person learning may not be accommodated in their home school. Families will be notified of any transfer outside their student’s home school before a change is made. Where space is not available, students may be placed on a wait list. Families who are currently on the wait list will be accommodated first.

Provided space is available, we will do our best to accommodate families to the maximum extent possible.

Thank you for your continued patience.

The Limestone District School Board is situated on traditional territories of the Anishinaabe & Haudenosaunee.
