In consultation with KFL&A Public Health, and with information from Environment Canada that indicates air quality will improve across the district, LDSB will be reinstating some outdoor activities at its schools, effective Thursday, June 8, 2023.

Students will be able to go outdoors for recesses but will be encouraged to avoid strenuous activity. Staff will continue to use their professional judgement and continue to monitor the activity level of students outside to ensure that no one is being negatively impacted. Schools will, if supervision levels allow, make every attempt to accommodate those who wish to stay inside or are experiencing symptoms such as coughing, or throat or eye irritation.

Strenuous outdoor activities, or participating in high level, intensity sports such as rugby, soccer, or track, will remain cancelled in the Limestone district, or will move indoors where available.

Extracurricular activities, field trips or planned outdoor activities that may have been part of the field trip will be permitted if they do not involve strenuous physical activity or a high level of physical exertion. Low or medium activity level sports such as softball and baseball will proceed. 

We will continue to monitor the situation closely and should any additional steps need to be taken on the advice of KFL&A Public Health, we will provide additional information to families.

Should you have questions or concerns about activities at your school, please contact your school principal directly.

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