HWDSB Statement on Ontario Return to School Guidance
In response to the provincial guidance shared today, HWDSB Chair Dawn Danko and Director of Education Manny Figueiredo have issued the following statement:
At HWDSB, our return to school planning has focused on two key principles: safety and the return of in-person learning. Now that the Ministry of Education has released its guidance on the return to school, we will incorporate this into our plans for effective public health measures and learning this fall. We are excited about the return of in-person learning every day for all students, with remote learning as an option. We expect more information to come on extracurriculars, contract tracing and other details. We will share a comprehensive COVID-19 update for families in the days ahead. In the meantime, we encourage families to see the provincial guidance at www.ontario.ca/document/covid-19-health-safety-and-operational-guidance-schools-2021-2022.
