    Athletics are back this fall. It will look and be different as all things are unique this year.

LFA held the 2020 Graduation Liturgy and Ceremony in the our Auditorium but, due to social distancing requirements, the on-location event consisted only of our celebrant, Father Gino, a handful of singers, speakers and IT staff as it was live streamed for our community.

  • Return to School Overview

    We hope you and your families have stayed well and have adjusted to the many changes over the last few weeks.  Students have responded amazingly well as we have transitioned to online learning and seem to be well prepared for our final weeks of school.
     
    With Friday’s announcement of the Ministry of Education’s K-12 Education Restart Plan, parents have been given the choice of sending their children back to school on a part-time basis, starting June 1. At the high school level, the 20% participation target means students may return to school one day per week. While we are excited for the return of students to our hallways and classrooms, we will be using the next week to finalize plans to ensure the restart of school is as safe as possible. Once our plans are approved by the Ministry of Education, specifics will be sent home to families. In the meantime, we have outlined a tentative plan to help families make the decision regarding their daughter’s return to school.

    The Great LFA Easter Egg Hunt

    With the world turned slightly upside down, we want to give our community the chance to take part in something that's purely for fun! With fun and social distancing in mind, we'd like to invite you to take part in an LFA online Easter Egg Hunt this Easter weekend. We've hidden eggs all over the school website. Some are pretty straight-forward. Others maybe less so. Some eggs are on the public site (8) and several can be found only once you've logged on to the site (7). 

    *HINTS* (special Easter Sunday update)
    - Be patient on pages with scrolling photos
    - There are no Easter eggs in the the "Photo Archives", so you don't need to go through the old photo albums
