We recognize that the 'current normal' has changed the way we go about our everyday lives. Consequently, Covid19 has temporarily changed L.E.R.'s daily operations. Although these new rules and regulations have seemingly made systems less welcoming and inviting, we appreciate that you will support EECD's, ASD-North's, and L.E.R.'s effort to maintain a safe, happy, and productive school year. The students' well-being is one constant that we all share!
