New Mandatory Masking Requirements for Students in Grades 1-3

The Ontario Ministry of Education has expanded the mandatory requirement to wear masks at school to include all students in Grades 1 to 3.  The new requirement will be effective when students return to in-person classroom learning, as directed by the Ontario government.  This means all students in Grades 1 to 12 are now required to wear masks at school.  

Students in Kindergarten are encouraged, but not required to wear masks.

Students in Grades 1 to 12 who ride buses must be wearing a mask when they get on board.

St. Clair Catholic has developed a helpful new resource for parents/guardians.  Click here for more information.

The St. Clair Catholic District School Board is committed to providing further updates as they become available.

Please continue to follow the advice of our public health partners, to help keep yourself and your family safe and healthy!

God bless,

Deb Crawford
Director of Education
