September Ready Update #8

The Ministry of Education has now approved the St. Clair Catholic District Board’s Return to School Plan, which can be viewed here.

We understand that the return to school in September will be different than any other year.  We are living in the midst of a global pandemic.  Our first priority is the health and safety of our students and staff.  Our plan has been informed and advised by the Ministry of Education, Public Health Ontario and our local Medical Officers of Health.

This Return to School Plan is a living document and may continue to evolve and change, as we follow direction from the Ministry of Education, Public Health Ontario and the local Medical Officers of Health.  Please visit the Board’s #SeptemberReady website regularly for updates.

We are confident in our Return to School Plan.  It is the work of many, many professionals with expertise in emergency management, school programming and school administration.  When we began our work back in June, we committed to you that we would put the health, safety and wellness of your children and our staff first.  We believe our Return to School Plan meets that commitment.

Now, we must all work together to put our plan into action.  But working together is what we have always done in our Catholic schools.  With faith in ourselves and each other, and by placing our trust in God, together we can make 2020-2021 the best year that it can be.

“For surely I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” 
-Jeremiah 29:11

We look forward to welcoming our students and staff as we return to learning in September!
