Winter Break - Move to Remote Learning on January 4

Dear YRDSB Parents

We have received notice from the Ontario Ministry of Education that following the winter break, all Ontario schools will be closed to students for a period of time as outlined below. During this period, all students will participate in online learning. This is in an effort to reduce the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

 

Elementary Schools

Between January 4, 2021 until January 8, 2021, all elementary schools will be closed to students. All students will participate in online learning during this time. Elementary schools are expected to reopen to students for in-person learning on January 11, 2021.

 

Secondary Schools

Between January 4, 2021 until January 22, 2021, all secondary schools will be closed to students. All students will participate in online learning during this time. Secondary schools are expected to reopen to students for in-person learning on January 25, 2021.

 

The expectation will be that, on January 4, teachers connect with students and families to provide information about online learning during this period. We will be sharing information with elementary school families who may need access to technology or internet services.
