Health Screening, Weather & Math Curriculum Updates from LFPS

Daily Health Assessment

The Government of Ontario changed the school screening checklist for students on Thursday, October 1st, and changed the conditions for return to school following an illness. For the most current information be sure to check the Daily Health Assessment link in the pop-up window on the Leslie Frost Public School website or use the following link to go directly to the Ministry of Health’s COVID Assessment Tool.

Be sure to check these links and the Kawartha Haliburton Pine Ridge District Health Unit regularly as information continues to change quite frequently.

Safety Measures

We are continuing to work on all of the new safety measures like: washing and sanitizing our hands frequently, wearing our masks at all time while indoors and maintaining physical distancing.

While outside for recess and not wearing a mask, it is especially important that students remain with their class cohort at all times.  Please help by reminding students that they need to remain with their class at all times while at school, including outside. Whenever they are outside without a mask, it is important to remain 2 metres apart from members of their cohort.

Dressing for the Weather

Mother Nature has been very kind to us since the beginning of September. We did have some brief showers last week. Please ensure that you send your child dressed for the weather. As students only get a break from wearing their masks while outside we will be going outside every recess rain or shine. We will only be having indoor recesses if the weather dictates that it us unsafe to stay outside (e.g. Lightning and temperatures below -25 Celsius)

New Math Curriculum

The Ministry of Education released a new Mathematic Curriculum in June.  Below is a link to a Parent’s Guide to the new curriculum with helpful information and tips for how you can support your child’s learning.


Wishing everyone a good week and a Happy Thanksgiving. Please take the time to enjoy family and friends and appreciate all of the beautiful fall colours.


Stay Well,
