Fall 2020 Return Plan Details Below

Return to School - Fall 2020

Since we began communicating with you in March with regards to Covid-19 we have been hoping we could welcome our students back in the Fall. Now that the government of Ontario supports this decision, we have been diligently planning our Fall 2020 Return Plan to share what the arrival and return to school look like for our students.

The health and safety of our entire community remain our top priority. This plan has been completed by collaborating with our local health unit, with guidance from the Ministry of Health and Minister of Education.

We will continue to monitor the situation and take directives from our local, provincial, and federal agencies in the coming months. Our community will remain updated with the changes to our plan as we seek guidance from health officials.
