Lyonsgate Administrative Update May 13, 2022

Hello Lyonsgate Families,

Starting this week we are splitting our weekly updates. There will be a Classrooms Update each week with information from your children’s Montessori guides, French-speaking assistants, and English-speaking assistants on a rotating basis, and an Administrative Update, if necessary, that will impart information about events, dates, policies, reminders, and anything else that comes up and is not specific to a particular classroom.

Your weekly update email will consist of the topics in each update and will contain links to the updates on the school website, It will also include any updates to the calendar.

Please make the school website your go to source for information. Some pages you might want to bookmark are the Lyonsgate Calendar, Lunch Menu, the Updates & Announcements page where you can find all updates, and the Lyonsgate COVID-19 Advisory Page. All of those pages can be found under the Parents tab, along with a host of other useful links; any regular, daily use information can also be found on the Home page.

We hope this change will make the flow of information more efficient and less overwhelming.

COVID Travel Rule Change

From the Ministry of Education:

As of April 25th, the federal government revised their requirements for vaccinated travelers, which includes that vaccinated individuals are no longer required to mask in public settings for 14 days upon return from international travel.

Requirements are unchanged for unvaccinated or partially vaccinated individuals who are exempt from quarantine (including unvaccinated children under 12 years of age who are exempt from quarantine due to accompanying a fully vaccinated adult), who DO still need to mask in public settings (including school and child care) for 14 days upon return.
