Dear Parents/Guardians and Staff:
Remote online learning at home for students in the St. Clair Catholic District School Board will be extended beyond January 25, 2020.
Although the Ontario government announced today that 100,000 students in seven health unit jurisdictions will be returning to class on Monday, Chatham-Kent Public Health and Lambton Public Health are not among them. This means online learning in the St. Clair Catholic District School Board will continue until further notice.
We will provide further information from the Ministry of Education as it becomes available.
In the meantime, I want to thank you for your on-going support as we continue to work together deliver teacher-led online remote learning. I know this is a challenging time for our students, our families and our staff.
Please continue to follow the advice of our public health partners, to keep yourself and your family safe and healthy.
Director of Education
