2020 YRDSB School Reopening Plan Feedback from Parents
This is a very a difficult time for all of us. COVID 19 has had an untold impact. I am concerned about our students and our parents and guardians. The Leger Poll just stated that 66% of parents are worried about sending their children to school. 63% are sending them. I have received over 100 emails and messages with questions and concerns.
On July 30, 2020, the Ministry of Education announced its decision for the reopening of schools in September.
The province stated that parents/guardians will have the choice to keep their child at home if they do not feel comfortable returning to school in person in the fall.
Although School Boards are mandated by the Ministry, and YRDSB will put in place the best plan possible.
As your School Trustee of YRDSB, I want to have constant input from the community on this particular issue before the School starts and to help me with future planning.
