Important information for families

Important information for families leading into the Winter Break
Posted on 12/17/2020

On Wednesday, Dec. 16, the Ministry of Education issued a memo to all school boards in the province with some recommendations as we head into the Winter Break. At this time, we are planning for the regular return to school on Jan. 4, 2021; however, it is important that we are prepared to respond to public health measures that could include the need to move to a remote learning model. With that in mind, we encourage you to ask your child(ren) to take their personal belongings home with them on the last day of school before the break, Friday, Dec. 18.

Should the decision be made by the Ministry of Education and public health officials to close schools to students, we will communicate directly with you to discuss next steps, including information on how to access technology, if required, for the purpose of remote learning.
