To The Families of Lakeside Outreach School;


We want to introduce ourselves to you today as the new administrators associated with Lakeside Outreach School for the 2021-2022 school year. It has been a busy first month of learning, meeting with students, their families, and providing a multitude of flexible opportunities to our vibrant and diverse community.

My colleague, Kris Herbert, has served as the principal and vice-principal of EG Wahlstrom School for the last five years. This year he has been named principal of Roland Michener Secondary School and Lakeside Outreach School. He will be overseeing and supporting our learning community throughout the year as well, and he very much looks forward to reconnecting with former students and families.

I am in my sixth year working for the High Prairie School Division. Last year I supported families and staff across the division through management of the At-Home Learning program as a direct response to the COVID-19 pandemic. This was preceded by two years as the learning support teacher at Roland Michener Secondary School and two years working in outreach and administrative capacities in Kinuso. There is a great team at Lakeside Outreach School, including career and wellness support, and I am happy to be a part of it this year. 

It is of utmost importance to us that all students feel welcomed, cared for, respected and safe when they are at our school, and that students have access to quality learning that most effectively meets their socio-emotional and scheduling needs. We also take pride in relationships and partnerships we have established in our local area, in particular with the parents and guardians of our students. We encourage open and on-going communication between home and school and we hope you will also consider volunteering to work with us in establishing a Lakeside Outreach School Council. You can also find us on Facebook (, where we enjoy showcasing our school and sharing successes. Please like and follow us!
