Lambeth Public School and Sir Isaac Public School to temporarily close Friday

Lambeth Public School and Sir Isaac Public School will be temporarily closed and classes will move online Friday due to “operational concerns related to staffing issues,” says Thames Valley District School Board.

TO news update posted to the TVDSB website says in support of the boards commitment to ensuring student safety and the continuation of learning both schools will be closed to in-person learning.

The update says administration has “determined that operational concerns related to staffing issues require this shift to remote learning.”

A tweet from TVDSB trustee Lori-Ann Pizzolato said there are about 400 staff absences across the school board daily.

A special board hearing will be held Tuesday at 7 pm with medical officers of health from the Middlesex-London Health Unit and Southwest Public Health, Pizzolato said.

Students at Lambeth Public School and Sir Isaac Brock Public school will temporarily transition to online learning Friday, until returning for class in-person on Monday.

The board says classroom teachers will contact families to coordinate.

TVDSB says it understands this is a challenging time for families and there are mental health and well-being resources available on its website.
