Chair’s Statement on March 18 Letter from Minister of Education
Ontario’s Minister of Education, Stephen Lecce, recently responded to a Hamilton-Wentworth District School Board (HWDSB) letter regarding health measures in schools, which was sent on March 11, 2022. Dawn Danko, Chair of the Board, has released a statement in response to the Minister’s letter:
“HWDSB welcomes a letter received late Friday from the Minister of Education that shares additional information from the Chief Medical Officer of Health about moving through reopening milestones.
Throughout the week, we have continued to update the Ministry about our transition plan. We appreciate the ongoing collaboration and support from the Ministry of Education and Hamilton Public Health Services.
Supporting staff and families during this phased approach and time of transition is our priority. We are reminding staff and students to wear a mask until April 1 and to exercise their choice by completing the mask exemption process, if needed.”
