Lethbridge School Division evacuates schools in north and south Lethbridge

​Due to an ongoing power outage across north and south Lethbridge, Lethbridge School Division has made the decision to evacuate all schools east of the river (all north and south schools). Some of these schools do still have power but the decision to evacuate all schools was made given the unpredictable nature of the situation. The School Division continues to monitor west side schools. 

For those schools being evacuated, buses will arrive between 11:45-12:30 to pick up students whose parents have been contacted and have given permission to have their child sent home. Other students whose parents have not been contacted cannot board the bus. Supervision should be available until all students have left, maintaining staff ratios for the number students in the building.
