In the spirit of working together to support our broader community during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Limestone District School Board has extended its support and resources beyond our schools.
Limestone has provided Kingston Health Sciences Centre, Providence Care, and the Lennox & Addington County General Hospital in Napanee with a variety of cleaning supplies (disinfectant wipes and bottled sanitizer), personal protective equipment (masks, gloves and goggles) and a loan of specialty sanitizing equipment such as our electrostatic disinfection sprayers which deliver wider coverage in hard-to-reach places. The Board’s Facility Services team and regional suppliers worked together to fulfill these urgent requests while still completing deep cleaning and sanitizing of all Limestone schools and sites.
Staff have also been regular participants in virtual meetings to coordinate supports for vulnerable families in Kingston and area. The Food Sharing Project has been working closely with other local food-providing organizations to determine how they can make the greatest positive impact, particularly for students who would normally receive food at their schools through student nutrition programs.
