Graduation Celebration

 

Longfields Davidson Heights is proud of the many accomplishments of the graduating class of 2021.  We acknowledge that this year has presented missed opportunities for our graduating students.  Many of the traditional practices associated with celebrating our grads have had to be eliminated due to health protocols. 

Unfortunately LDH is not in a position to host an outside commencement ceremony for its 370 grads.  There are many reasons for this;   some are logistical and others are related to health concerns

We are looking to celebrate our grads in a number of ways:

  1. Virtual Commencement – Friday June 25 at 1:00 p.m. – The ceremony will be available on a specific YouTube channel that will be shared during the last week of school.

     

  2. We will be providing opportunities for the grads of 2021 to acknowledge their graduation in person on Wednesday, June 23 (2:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.) and on Thursday, June 24 (4:00 p.m. -8:00 p.m.). Students and families will be able to sign up for a fifteen minute slot where students can return any remaining school based resources (i.e. textbooks, Chromebooks).Students will then have the opportunity to take pictures in the main atrium, to do a ceremonial walk across the stage in the auditorium, and receive a grad bag that contains their diploma, transcripts, OCDSB and LDH swag.Students can invite two guests to participate in the pictures.There will be ten slots available per time slot so students can book together with their friends if they so choose. If students want to book their time slot as a group of more than six (maximum of ten) they can email Ms. Amy Kutyma at amy.kutyma@ocdsb.ca (please use subject title – Group ICM Booking) by Tuesday, June 15 at 9:00 a.m..Ms. Kuytma will then help make the necessary arrangements. Our ability to book groups will be based on availability, so there are no guarantees that we will be able to accommodate every request. Students will be able to begin booking their individual desired times starting on Tuesday, June 15 at 4:00 p.m. Only students will be able to book their times using their OCDSB emails. Students can access the booking system by clicking on the following link

You can book either the in person event or curb side event with the following link:

We respect the fact that some members of our community might not feel comfortable coming into LDH in person and as a result we have created an alternate sign up process for a curbside pickup of the grab bag.Students and families can do curbside pickups on Friday, June 25 between 9:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. Alternate arrangements can be made by contacting the main office at (613) 842-7722 if this time is not convenient.More information for curbside pickup sign up will be available by Wednesday, June 16.

Just a reminder that you will not be able to book appointments until Tuesday June 15 at 4:00   p.m.

All Attendees, supervisors and participants of the in person graduation activities must:

  1. wear mask (masks may be briefly removed for photographs provided appropriate distancing is in place)
  2. adhere to physical distancing guidelines
  3. sanitize hands when entering/exiting the space
  4. engage in confirmation of self-assessment screening (see link below)
