Schools Closed to Students for Remainder of School Year

The Ministry of Education has announced that all schools will remain closed to students and staff for the remainder of the 2020-21 school year. Students will continue virtual learning during this time.

 

Community Partners

We are proud to partner with community agencies that provide mental health services. These agencies add to the services delivered by school-based social work and psychology staff. Our community partners help us to meet the diverse needs of our students. This includes offering services in multiple languages. 

Please see below for a list of partners and the services they provide during the instructional day.   


Interested in partnering with us? 

If your agency provides services by regulated health professionals, regulated social services professionals and paraprofessionals, and you are interested in partnering with us, please review the Partnerships with External Agencies for Provision of Services by Regulated Health Professionals, Regulated Social Service Professionals and Paraprofessionals Policy, fill out the Partnership Agreement​ and submit for consideration to patricia.marra-stapleton@yrdsb.ca
