August 28th Update

We have made the decision to delay our start of in-class learning by two days. This is in addition to the staggered entry which we previously communicated.

The new schedule is as follows:

The remote learning program through our elementary and secondary virtual schools, will begin on September 14th.  

All Elementary and Secondary Schools: 

Once students return to school on their designated start date, they will continue to attend school every day after that.

Tuesday, September 8 and Wednesday, September 9: No students at school, school reorganizing and staff training
Thursday, September 10: Senior Kindergarten to Grade 3 only, Grade 9 Only - Orientation
Friday, September 11: Grade 4-6 (as well as Kindergarten to Grade 3), Grade 10 (as well as Grade 9)
Monday, September 14: Remote Learning, Grade 7 and 8 (as well as Kindergarten to Grade 6), Grade 11 and 12 (as well as Grade 9 and 10).
School Specific Staggered Start: Junior Kindergarten students will be contacted directly by the school about a start date.
