The Louis Riel School Division (LRSD) Learning from Home School (LFHS)/L'École Apprendre-chez-soi is a robust and fully staffed school with programming in both English and French Immersion. In previous stories, we’ve explained how we created the LFHS during a pandemic and gave a few sneak peeks into what learning and teaching looks like for students and staff.
Our next set of videos highlight more of the collaboration, community building and classroom culture within the LFHS.
