As such, Simcoe County District School Board (SCDSB) schools and adult learning centres will not reopen on May 31, 2020. The decision to extend the school closure period for the remainder of the school year is based on advice from Ontario's Chief Medical Officer of Health in order to protect the health and safety of students, families and staff. <br></div><div><br></div><div>The following programs/meetings will not run or are closed:<br></div><div><ul><li>Permits (Community Use of Schools)</li><li>All EarlyON and Child Care Centres</li><li>Adult and continuing education</li><li>Dual Credit and Cooperative education programs<br></li></ul></div><div>In addition, the Education Centre and the Career Centre are closed to the public.<br></div><div><br></div><div>Learn more at <a href="http://www.scdsb.on.ca/covid-19">www.scdsb.on.ca/covid-19</a><br></div>

Last Call for Yearbookshttp://nlo.scdsb.on.ca/about-us/news/school-news/56Last Call for Yearbooks<p>​<span>2019-2020 Yearbooks are available to purchase at $20 each through schoolcashonline.com until Wed Jun 24. They are being produced by Edge Imaging. The yearbooks will be delivered to the school in the fall for distribution. <br>In view of the fact that we are unable to have a graduation ceremony to celebrate our student’s success, we would like to offer our graduating class a copy of the 2019-20 yearbook at no cost.<br>You will still need to do the full checkout process, similar to when you are actually making a purchase.</span></p>
Yearbook Surveyhttp://nlo.scdsb.on.ca/about-us/news/school-news/55Yearbook Survey <p style="background:white none repeat scroll 0% 0%;"><span style="font-size:10pt;font-family:"arial", sans-serif;color:black;">Hi everyone,</span><span style="font-size:10pt;font-family:"arial", sans-serif;color:#323130;"></span></p><p style="background:white none repeat scroll 0% 0%;"><span style="font-size:10pt;font-family:"arial", sans-serif;color:black;">I trust this finds all our New Lowell families doing well during our Covid-19 lockdown. This has certainly been a school year to remember! To help remember this bizarre school year, a yearbook (as always) is in the works. We know our New Lowell Chargers are missing friends, school, special events and so much more during this time and I want to help make this time as memorable as possible, even though we can't be with our friends. Please take a moment to fill out the yearbook survey (link below) to give some feedback to what you would like to see in the 2019-2020 yearbook. Thank you in advance for taking the time, I really appreciate it.</span><span style="font-size:10pt;font-family:"arial", sans-serif;color:#323130;"></span></p><p style="background:white none repeat scroll 0% 0%;"><span style="font-size:10pt;font-family:"arial", sans-serif;color:black;">Schoolcashonline.com is the only method of payment this year due to our situation. </span><span style="font-size:10pt;font-family:"arial", sans-serif;color:#323130;background:white none repeat scroll 0% 0%;">If families are not set up on schoolcashonline.com, please email: </span><span style="font-size:10pt;font-family:"arial", sans-serif;color:black;background:white none repeat scroll 0% 0%;"><a href="mailto:newlowell@scdsb.on.ca">newlowell@scdsb.on.ca</a> </span><span style="font-size:10pt;font-family:"arial", sans-serif;color:#323130;background:white none repeat scroll 0% 0%;">and we will forward instructions to you.</span><span style="font-size:10pt;font-family:"arial", sans-serif;color:#323130;"></span></p><p style="background:white none repeat scroll 0% 0%;"><span style="font-size:10pt;font-family:"arial", sans-serif;color:black;">Please click here to fill out yearbook survey.</span><span style="font-size:10pt;font-family:"arial", sans-serif;color:#323130;"></span></p><p style="background:white none repeat scroll 0% 0%;"><span style="font-size:10pt;font-family:"arial", sans-serif;color:black;"><a href="https://forms.gle/WNezfzPGiswo3tx78">https://forms.gle/WNezfzPGiswo3tx78</a></span><span style="font-size:10pt;font-family:"arial", sans-serif;color:#323130;"></span></p><p style="background:white none repeat scroll 0% 0%;"><span style="font-size:10pt;font-family:"arial", sans-serif;color:black;">If you have any questions or suggestions, please send them my way.</span></p><p style="background:white none repeat scroll 0% 0%;"><span style="font-size:10pt;font-family:"arial", sans-serif;color:black;">Sincerely,</span></p><p style="background:white none repeat scroll 0% 0%;"><span style="font-size:10pt;font-family:"arial", sans-serif;color:black;">Mrs. Haufe</span></p><p style="background:white none repeat scroll 0% 0%;"><span style="font-size:10pt;font-family:"arial", sans-serif;color:black;"><a href="mailto:thaufe@scdsb.on.ca">thaufe@scdsb.on.ca</a></span><span style="font-size:10pt;font-family:"arial", sans-serif;"></span></p>
