May 19 Update: Ontario schools will remain closed until the end of June. Details on how this affects the LDCSB will be shared in the coming days.
Sacraments for Students
Administration of the sacraments is under the purview of the Diocese of London. Since public Masses have now been cancelled through the end of May, all scheduled celebrations for the Sacrament of Confirmation and First Communions are postponed. Parishes will make arrangements at a later date to reschedule these celebrations.
Final Marks and Reports Cards
No student’s mark will be negatively affected by performance during the school closure period. Grades and marks will not go down from what they were on March 13, 2020. We are doing all we can to keep our students involved and actively engaged in teacher-led learning activities, tasks and assignments. We want to ensure students are successful moving forward, for the 2020-21 school year and beyond. Students will have the opportunity to improve their marks, based on work completed after March 13 and the teacher’s professional judgement. All students will receive final report cards at the end of the school year.
