Ontario announced that schools across the province will move to remote learning following spring break.  HWDSB has been working proactively to communicate with families as early as possible. Last week, we shared with you the possible shift to remote learning.   Transition Days   With the direction to move to full remote learning, a transition will occur for elementary, secondary and remote learners. This means schools will be closed and, like an inclement weather day, there will no instruction.   HWDSB is committed to supporting our entire system by providing transition days to allow education workers to prepare for the shift to remote. Staff will use this time to connect with families and deploy devices to students who require it for remote learning.
