LKDSB eliminating student safety patrol program as of June 30, 2017
The Lambton Kent District School Board (LKDSB) has decided to eliminate
its student safety patrol program as of June 30, 2017. Although the safety
patrol program has offered elementary students great leadership
opportunities in the past, LKDSB senior administration has decided to
eliminate the program due to ongoing concerns about student safety and
liability. This decision was made following careful consideration and we
want to ensure that all affected students and families are well aware of the
pending change in service.
