On August 3, 2021, the Ministry of Education released its COVID-19: Health, safety and operational guidance for schools (2021-2022). In line with guidance from the Ministry of Education, the WRDSB is planning to offer two learning scenarios:

The Ministry has directed that for September 2021, all schools will reopen for in-person learning, with enhanced health and safety protocols. To learn more about how our Elementary and Secondary students will be learning this year, visit these pages:

Over the course of the 2021-2022 school year, we hope to resume regular operations over time and as it is safe to do so. We will continue to take our guidance and advice from local Public Health and the direction of the Ministry of Education. The WRDSB remains committed to ensuring that all health and safety protocols will be in place and that our schools will continue to operate safely, while putting human rights and equity at the forefront of all our decisions.
