(Nov 22, 2022) Masking Update

Since our last update regarding the messaging from Ontario's chief medical officer, Dr. Kieran Moore, we have now received communications from all three Health Units with whom we work (Porcupine Health Unit, Public Health Sudbury and Algoma Public Health), advising that they too are strongly recommending that masks be worn in public settings, including schools and childcare facilities.

ADSB Welcomes and Supports Hundreds of Multilingual Learners

(Oct 4, 2022) This fall Algoma District School Board (ADSB) has seen a significant increase in the number of Multilingual Learners registered with the Board. In August and September alone, ADSB welcomed 68 students from 13 countries to 23 of our schools speaking 16 different languages. Trustees at ADSB’s October 4th Committee of the Whole meeting learned more about the supports that are in place to welcome and register these students into our schools from Megan Turner McMillan (the Board’s K-12 ELL Coordinator) and Linda Kirby (ADSB’s Program System Administrator.)

ELSS Contact Welcome – September 2019
Together with our excellent teachers and superb support staff, Mr. Forsyth and I, welcome you to a new school year.  We look forward to working with each family ensuring that all of our students are confident learners and caring citizens.
Once again, the school looks amazing!  Even with the major renovations occurring on both floors of the building all summer long, Mr. Gillis and his team have worked very hard to ensure it is spotless and ready for learning upon your arrival in September. 
When you arrive, you will notice a number of changes to our building.  The Algoma District School Board has invested a significant amount of money to improve our school over the summer. These renovations included much needed upgrades to the Riddle Cafeteria ceiling lights and enhancements to the gymnasium change rooms.  The majority of the funds were used to modernize our library into a 21st century learning commons, complete with improved technology, a student conference area and a comfortable reading space finished with a fireplace and 60 inch monitor in addition to better seating and work space areas.  While the library renovations are slightly behind schedule it will be a stunning improvement to say the least!  In the meantime, all library/learning commons classes will be scheduled into Room 213 (computer lab) until the new space is officially opened.  The upper main entrance has also been improved with an extra catch basin and new pavement to improve access to the upper parking lot.
However, we remind all families, that for safety reasons, and to minimize congestion, please use the lower laneway next to the cafeteria for student drop offs in the morning.


Confident learners, caring citizens.


In partnership with our stakeholders, the Algoma District School Board will create a collaborative learning community where all flourish as confident learners who see themselves as capable, self-directed and open to learning and as caring citizens who value good character and contribute positively to our communities.
