FOOD BANK DONATIONS!

The students connected to our Bridge program organized a school wide food bank donation. Many items were donated, and we gave all the items to the Armstrong Food Bank on Wednesday. It is wonderful to promote giving and kindness with our students.

Messagge From LWMS Staff

“Winter, a lingering season, is a time to gather golden moments, embark upon a sentimental journey, and enjoy every idle hour.”- John Boswell.

The staff at LWMS wishes to thank all our families for allowing us the privilege to spend our days with your children! Happy Holidays! Wishing you and your family a magical holiday season full of beautiful memories with your children!

COVID-19 exposure

Interior Health has notified School District No. 83 (North Okanagan-Shuswap) that there was a positive COVID-19 exposure in the Fluorescent Flamingos team at Len Wood Middle on Dec. 1.

When there is an exposure, Interior Health will directly notify confirmed close contacts of the positive case with further instructions, including if they should self-isolate or self-monitor for symptoms of illness. If you are contacted by Interior Health, or receive a self-isolation/self-monitor letter, it is imperative that you follow their direction carefully. The most important thing for students and families to remember is that students who have any symptoms of COVID-19 should stay home and get tested.

Common symptoms of COVID-19 include cough, fever/chills, shortness of breath, and loss of taste and smell. Most people experience only mild disease.A small number of people may experience a more moderate to severe illness requiring hospitalization.

COVID-19 is spread by respiratory droplets when a person coughs or sneezes. It may also be spread by touching an object or surface with the virus on it, then touching your mouth, nose or eyes before washing your hands.

The Board of Education of School District No. 83 is committed to ensuring all of our students, staff and schools are safe. Please use all the layers of protection available to you.
