Stay safe and connected
As the number of COVID-19 cases continue to rise, it is more important than ever to follow public health advice
to reduce the spread of COVID-19. Please continue to limit your interactions to your immediate household, and visit Peel Public Health's website
for helpful resources and supports.
We understand that remote learning is challenging for some students and may not be suitable for all families. However, these important measures are in place by the provincial government to help reduce the spread of COVID-19, and we will always follow public health advice to keep our school communities safe and healthy. We’re looking forward to welcoming you back to school as soon as it is safe to do so.
While remote learning continues, we are committed to keeping families, staff, students and community members informed. Updates will be posted on our board website
