Elementary students in Southern Ontario will continue with remote learning for another two weeks. The announcement was made this afternoon by Dr. David Williams, Ontario’s Medical Officer of Health, as part of ongoing COVID-19 lockdown restrictions by the province.
The announcement impacts Grand Erie elementary students and staff who were scheduled to return to in-class instruction next week. These students and staff will now remain in remote learning, with in-class instruction not resuming until January 25.
On December 21, the province announced in-class instruction for secondary students and staff, including those in Grand Erie, would not resume until January 25. During remote learning, Grand Erie educators provide synchronous and asynchronous learning for students throughout the school day.
Grand Erie families who previously selected online learning through the Board’s Virtual Learning Academy are not impacted by today’s announcement.
