School Mission:
To develop responsible, life-long learners in a student centered environment where all educational partners are successful, respected and valued.


In December, the AVRSB asked students, staff, families and school community members to complete an online survey about different ways AVRSB could respond to winter weather and road conditions. The results of this survey are outlined below.


Heart&Stroke Walkabout™ is pleased to offer the annual Walkability grants to help kick start physical activity and walking among Nova Scotian communities.  These grants are awarded to Nova Scotian organizations, groups and individuals that pledge to take steps to increase walking participation. The deadline for submissions is Thursday, February 16, 2018, and applicants will be awarded their funds no later than March 31st, 2018.

There are four categories for the Walkability Grants:

1.     Infrastructure: Increased accessibility or physical improvements to basic, existing walking infrastructure to encourage Nova Scotians to walk more (e.g. signage, aesthetic features, safety features etc.). 

2.    Marketing: Innovative marketing and encouragement strategies (e.g. new media, community based social marketing, incentive programs, etc.) that link with Heart&Stroke Walkabout™ and encourage Nova Scotians to walk more. 

3.     Advocacy: Communication or other activities addressing a local issue (e.g. lack of crosswalks) or projects that would promote walkability, such as engaging with decision makers to advance policy change or changes in infrastructure; with a goal to create long-term change for better walkability.

4.       Programming: Population-based programming which allows large groups within a community to benefit. 

Level of support

With a total of $55,000 available funding for distribution, grants of $500 to $3,000 will be awarded to successful applicants.  Three grants will be awarded at a level of $5,000 to applications with the largest reach and impact. The remaining $40,000 will be dispersed dependent on various applicants’ requests and potential impact.  

See the application form for more details.  For inquiries:



On March 24, 2017, the Minister of Education and Early Childhood Development created the Commission on Inclusive Education as an arms-length body under the provisions of the Teachers’ Professional Agreement and Classroom Improvements (2017) Act to examine the model of inclusive education in Nova Scotia.

The Commission is tasked to complete a literature review of national and international research, identify best practices from across Canada, consult broadly with the many partners in inclusive education, reform inclusive education in Nova Scotia, develop a strategic plan that includes recommended changes to: policy, funding, resources, teacher training (initial preparation and ongoing professional development) coordination and alignment of programs and services, monitoring of inclusive education, accountability and submit a final report by March 20, 2018.

Consulting extensively with front-line teachers, parents, students, associations and seeking feedback from Nova Scotians is a priority for the Commission.

Dear LCS Families,

We have new students who have life threatening allergies (anaphylaxis) to peanuts  and other nuts and therefore it is essential that we make our school allergy safe. 

In collaboration with the AVRSB School Nurse, we have learned the best way to reduce the risk of accidental exposure of allergens to these students is to respectfully ask for your co-operation as the parents/guardians within our LCS community to:


We realize that this request may pose an inconvenience for you when packing your child’s snack or lunch. However, we hope you will appreciate the seriousness of our situation and assist in our efforts to create as safe an environment as possible.  With your cooperation we can minimize the risk of a severe allergic reaction. In addition, our school cafeteria will no longer be selling items that contain nuts, such as peanut butter sandwiches or peanut butter cookies.

Included with this letter is some information about peanut allergies as well as things that you can teach your child in order to protect the health and safety of the students with the potentially life-threatening allergy.

Thank you in advance for your understanding and co-operation as we welcome our new students into our nut aware learning environment!

With warm regards,

Mrs. Shehata, Principal, LCS
