b"PLANNING FOR THE FUTURE When cole Sage Creek School (SCS) opened its doors in September 2017, the school that was intended to house kindergarten to Grade 8 (K-8) students was already over its capacity of 600. In 2019, LRSD implemented a temporary solution to address the overcrowding by moving the grades 7 and 8 students to their respective high schools. By 2024, the K-8 enrolment in Sage Creek is projected to balloon to more than 1,200 students.The division has been advocating for a second school in the community for the past eight years. In 2020, the Manitoba Government reaffirmed its commitment to bring LRSD's vision to fruition. During the last week of April 2021, LRSD invited students, staff and families to a community meeting to address current enrolment pressures in SCS as the community awaits a second school. As a result of the meetings and feedback from the community, LRSD presented temporary solutions including: Temporarily relocating English program students in grades 5 and 6 from SCS to Shamrock School Temporarily operating the SCS English program for kindergarten to Grade 4 and the French Immersion program for kindergarten to Grade 6 Expanding the catchment for Island Lakes Community School to include students living inNorth Island Lakes and Bonavista Following the presentation of these temporary solutions, divisional and school leadership met with the families and staff directly impacted by the changes throughout May and June.
