Grand Erie District School Board’s elementary and secondary schools re-open on Tuesday, September 4 with staff ready to welcome new and returning students as well as their families for the 2018-19 school year.

“Lots of work goes on behind the scenes during the summer months as staff prepare our schools and our classrooms for the new year,” said Brenda Blancher, Director of Education. “With that work now complete, we’re excited for the start of the new school year. This fall, we enter the third year of our Multi-Year Plan – Success for Every Student. Thanks to the efforts of staff across the Board, we’ve made significant progress on behalf of students through this plan and I look forward to seeing this great work continue this year.”
