FAQs About Opening

We look forward to welcoming all students back this September. We have designated opening days between September 3 and 5, with classes starting on September 6. 
Please read our frequently asked questions below. If you have any questions that you can't find the answers to, please contact the Admissions Office.


List of 6 items.

  • What can I expect during Orientation/Opening Days?

    Opening Days are a chance for you to meet new friends, reconnect with old friends, learn your way around campus and start to feel at home at LCS. 
    During Opening Days, there will be games and activities to help you become familiar with your staff and peers in your house. Each house will have time to spend together in community, for both day and boarding students as well as in-person and remote students.

    There will also be time for you to unpack and settle in, meet with your Advisor, learn how to navigate and use Edsby, set some intentions for the year and have fun!
  • What will this year's Grad Leadership Conference look like?

    We look forward to welcoming all of our Grade 12 students (LCS Grads) on Tuesday, September 3, 2024 for the start of their year! Read more about what to expect at The Grad Leadership Conference.
  • What medical information does the school need?

    Please ensure that medical forms are up-to-date and forwarded to the school prior to school opening through the eRegistration system. In order to provide safe and responsible care for your child, we cannot allow students to stay at the school without this vital information.
  • Do we need to label our children’s belongings?

    Yes, all personal clothing and belongings (books, phone, tech, etc.) should be labelled. This will help us with “lost and found” items during the school year. School uniform items delivered to LCS will be labeled by Top Marks.
  • When does my child need their school uniform?

    Please ensure that your child has the proper classroom dress uniform and Formal Dress for the beginning of the school year, by logging into the Top Marks website with our school code LCS01 and ordering online. You will find sizing charts, a catalogue showing the various clothing items available, and Frequently Asked Questions with answers on their website. You may also contact Top Marks by phone 1.800.667.7105 if you require assistance in purchasing uniform items.  It is particularly important for Grade 12 students to have their Formal Dress (including navy blazer) during Opening Week, as it is required for grad photos.

  • What items does my child need for classes?

    Students may bring school supplies (binders, pens, paper, etc.) with them or purchase these at School Stores. Each student should also have some kind of “book bag” or knapsack for taking home schoolwork, etc. Any required textbooks will be issued by subject teachers on the first few days of classes.
