All students to participate in remote learning due to school closures
Posted on 12/22/2020

On December 21, the Ministry of Education announced that all school buildings in Ontario will remain closed following the Winter Break in order to suppress the spread of COVID-19. 

Simcoe County District School Board (SCDSB) elementary students, including Grade 7 and 8 students at Elmvale District High School and Stayner Collegiate Institute, will participate in remote learning from January 4 to 8, 2021. Elementary students are expected to return to in-person learning on January 11. SCDSB secondary students will participate in remote learning from January 4 to 22, 2021 and are expected to return to in-person learning on January 25. Please note that transportation services will not be available from January 4 to 8, 2021. Transportation will resume for elementary school students during the week of January 11.  

All SCDSB students currently participating in in-person learning will receive and complete assigned coursework through the virtual learning platform established by their teacher (either Google Classroom or Desire2Learn [D2L]). On January 4, your child’s teacher will contact you with information regarding next steps, including access to learning materials and technology, should your child require it. 

Students currently enrolled in the [email protected] program will continue to attend class virtually beginning January 4.

Parents/guardians of students in special education classes will be contacted by their child’s teacher on January 4 regarding programming options.
