A New Elementary School for Lakefield!
Exciting changes are coming for elementary students in the Lakefield area, and the school community is a big part of the transition.
Renovations have begun at the current Lakefield District Intermediate and Secondary School site to transform it into a new, Kindergarten-Grade 8 school, starting in September 2017. All grades will move from the current Ridpath Junior Public School to the new site, as will Grades 7 and 8 only from Buckhorn Public School.
Thank you for your suggestions for a school name! A committee of parent/community/school board representatives reviewed 162 submissions from the community. At the February 23, 2017 Board meeting, Trustees approved Lakefield District Public School as the new school's name.
The new Lakefield District Public School will continue to offer regular English programming, French Immersion, and Ojibwe classes.
