Coronavirus - Information

UPDATE: March 9, 2020

Dear members of the Lester B. Pearson School Board community,

 

Over the past week, there has been a significant increase in information about the Coronavirus (COVID-19). The Lester B. Pearson School Board is actively monitoring this situation and continues to work with the Ministry of Education, Santé Québec, Public Health Canada, and other governmental agencies.

 

The school board continues proactive measures to protect student and staff well-being.  As this is an evolving situation, current information is critical.  More information is available on the Government of Canadas website https://www.canada.ca/en/public-health/services/diseases/2019-novel-coronavirus-infection.html

 

Building Cleaning – As part of our regular routine, enhanced cleaning practices have been implemented.

 

Handwashing – As always, the best precautions you can take are to wash hands, avoid touching your face, and cover your mouth if you cough to reduce the spread of germs. Washing hands with plain soap and water is recommended in schools and childcare settings. We have attached information on Hand Hygiene and Handwashing which we believe is good information for schools, centres and home. This information by no means replaces the advice of a health professional. If you have questions regarding your health, contact Info-Santé 811 or see a health professional.

 

Supporting and Talking to Children – Concern over this new virus can make children and families anxious. Children look to adults for guidance on how to react to stressful events and need factual, age appropriate information. Teaching children positive preventive measures, talking with them about their fears, and giving them a sense of some control over their risk of infection can help reduce anxiety. The following link is a great resource to help you speak with your children: https://www.Québec.ca/en/health/health-issues/a-z/2019-coronavirus/.

 

Travel advice – Parents, students and staff who have or are traveling overseas are encouraged to regularly monitor Government of Canada Travel Advisories.   Please note impacted areas may change and expand as the situation continues to evolve. Please follow Québec’s Public Health advice about who should self-isolate and for how long upon returning to Canada. The Public Health Agency of Canada indicates that while the risk to Canadian travellers abroad is generally low, it will vary depending on the destination.

 

More specifically, if you have travelled to Iran, the Hubei province, China, the areas of Daegu and Cheongdo in South Korea or the regions of Aosta Valley, Piedmont, Liguria, Lombardy, Emilia-Romagna, Veneto, Friuli-Venezia Giulia and Trentino-Alto Adige in northern Italy –in the last 14 days, limit your contact with others for a total of 14 days, starting the day you began your journey to Canada. This means self-isolate and stay at home. In addition, contact 811 (Info-Santé) within 24 hours of arriving in Canada.

 

Although it is understandable to have questions and concerns in a time of uncertainty, we share a responsibility to not spread misinformation nor act in a way that may be perceived as hurtful to our fellow colleagues or students or have the effect of making them feel unwelcome in our schools and centres.

 

We are a school board that prides itself on being respectful, inclusive, and community-minded, and so I would ask that we continue to be welcoming of all students and staff. This is consistent with our efforts to offer a safe and caring learning environment, and I appreciate your efforts to encourage conversations and actions that honour our core values.

 

We believe it will take a collective effort to minimize the spread of COVID-19. We remain committed to monitoring this situation and keeping you informed. Additional links:

Ministère de la Santé et des Services sociaux

 

 

Sincerely,

The Administration of the Lester B. Pearson School Board

Adoption of Bill 40 Concerning School Organization and Governance

Dear parents, staff, students, and community members, 

 

As you are most likely aware, Bill 40, an Act to amend mainly the Education Act with regard to school organization and governance in Quebec, was adopted by the National Assembly on February 8, 2020. It is important to note that while the impact of the legislation is immediate in the Francophone school boards, the law allows for a transition period in the Anglophone school boards. Our present council of commissioners remains in function until November 2020. This will allow for elections to be organized to elect representatives to sit on the new board of directors. 

 

We at the Lester B. Pearson School Board would like to assure you that we shall continue to provide all educational and complementary services to our students. We remain focused on student achievement, wellness and engagement while adhering to our core values of respect, integrity, innovation, inclusion, and community.

 

Here are some important points to keep in mind: 

 

• Our council of commissioners who work diligently for student success remain in office and will continue their work until November 2020;

 

• The tasks and responsibilities of all employees of the Lester B. Pearson School Board remain essentially the same;

 

• School elections are maintained for English-language school service centres; the composition of the board of directors will be changed according to the new law. It will be composed of parents, staff and community members;

 

• We will provide updated information throughout the transition process;

 

• We will work diligently and conscientiously with our community during this transition period. 

 

We are very proud of the achievements of the Lester B. Pearson School Board, and we thank you for your contributions to making our school board one of the most successful in the province. Together, we will continue to provide rich learning opportunities for the students in our schools and centres.

 

Respectfully, 

 

CIndy FInn, Director General                            Noel Burke, Chair

Cannabis (marijuana) legalization

Cannabis (marijuana) was legalized in Canada as of October 17, 2018, and is governed by The Cannabis Act (federal) and the Cannabis Regulation Act (provincial). The legal age for consumption in Quebec is currently set at 18.


By law and in accordance with LBPSB’s policies and procedures, the possession, consumption, and distribution of marijuana is still prohibited in all LBPSB schools and centres, and on their premises. All protocols and collaborative practices currently agreed to with law enforcement officials remain unchanged.


For more information, we encourage all members of the LBPSB community to consult the following resources:
