Earlier today, the Government of Ontario announced that, following the winter break, all Ontario schools will be closed to students for at least two weeks.
Between January 3-14, 2022, schools will be closed to students. From January 5-14 students will participate in remote learning. This is in an effort to reduce the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic. At this time, schools are expected to reopen to students for in-person learning on January 17, 2022.
Before and after care programs will not operate while schools are closed to students. For full day child care programs, please check in with your child care provider.
Most students with special education needs will be learning remotely during this period. In order to reduce the spread of COVID-19, in-person learning should be reserved for a small group of students that cannot be accommodated through remote learning. More information regarding Special Education will be available in the near future.
In addition to current health and safety measures, when schools reopen to students, York Region Public Health is requiring the use of masks for all Kindergarten students attending York Region schools. All students in Kindergarten to Grade 12 will be required to wear masks.
