LES Christmas Concert- A Celebration of Light

Tuesday, Dec. 19th, 7pm

Prairie Rose Church

All are welcome to attend the Landmark Elementary Christmas Concert, featuring all of our kindergarten to grade 3/4 students, as well as the LES Choir and the ORFF Club.


In rare cases when Hanover School Division cancels classes due to weather and/or road conditions, families are now notified by an automatic phone call system unless you have requested to NOT receive that phone call. School closure information, as well as bus delays, are posted on the HSD website (www.hsd.ca).

In addition, there are radio announcements. It is VERY IMPORTANT that parents check for school closures. Due to consideration of unions and workplace safety, there will no longer be anyone at the schools on school closure days. Also, there will NOT be a sign outside the school to let you know that schools are closed. Unfortunately, if students arrive at the school on a school closure day, there will be no way for them to contact parents.
