Students to participate in remote learning

04/13/2021

​On April 12, the Ontario government announced that all schools in Ontario will move to remote learning following the Spring Break in order to suppress the spread of COVID-19. 

As a result, all Simcoe County District School Board (SCDSB) students currently participating in in-person learning will now participate in remote learning until further notice. Students will receive and complete assigned coursework through the virtual learning platform established by their teacher (either Google Classroom or Desire2Learn [D2L]). Your child’s teacher will contact you beginning on Monday, April 19 to discuss next steps, including information on how to access technology, if required, for the purpose of remote learning. School programming is expected to be in full operation through remote learning by Wednesday, April 21. Please note that transportation services will not be available during the remote learning period.

Parents/guardians of students in special education classes will be contacted by their child’s teacher beginning on Monday, April 19 regarding programming and transportation arrangements. School programming is expected to be in full operation by Wednesday, April 21.

Students currently enrolled in the Learn@Home program will continue to attend class virtually. Learn@Home classes will resume on Monday, April 19.
