On July 30, 2020, the Ministry of Education announced that all Ontario schools will reopen on Sept. 8, 2020, for the 2020-21 school year. Though our school routines will look different this school year, we are excited to welcome students and staff back for another year of learning and inspiration.
To help us prepare for a safe school year, students will gradually return to school by attending orientation sessions during the weeks of Sept. 8 and 14 to learn about and become adjusted to new school routines and health and safety practices. A gradual return to school means that fewer people will be in the school building, so students and staff can focus on learning and adopting new routines and safety practices before all students return.
