Given the current air quality statement from Environment Canada and the forecast for tomorrow, the Limestone District School Board in consultation with KFL&A Public Health, is cancelling all outdoor activities for Tuesday, June 7, 2023. Students will continue to remain indoors, including during recess and for any other physical education or extracurricular activities. 

Field trips that are indoors will continue. However, any planned outdoor activities that may have been part of the field trip will not take place. Local sporting events, like KASSAA will look to reschedule or move indoors. 

We are continuing to monitor the air quality within our schools. School windows will remain closed, and we will limit the movement of people in and out of the building. All schools will continue to use their existing HEPA units. 

We thank LDSB families and school for their patience today as we consulted with KFL&A Public Health as conditions changed.  Air quality and visibility due to wildfire smoke can vary considerably from hour to hour and over short distances. 

Know that student health and safety is a priority, and we will continue to monitor the situation and adjust as needed.

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