Today the Ministry of Education announced that some Ontario School Boards would re-open to in-person instruction on Monday, February 1st, 2021. The Ministry of Education, in consultation with local Public Health has informed the WRDSB that we will remain closed until at least February 10th pending further information. For clarity, the earliest the WRDSB will be able to welcome students back to in person learning is Thursday February 11, 2021. Ministry of Education and Public Health officials are responsible for making this decision. As always, the WRDSB is committed to providing the very best possible education for its students and to supporting students, families, and staff during these very difficult times. We thank you for your continued support and courage.
