Dear Parents/Guardians:

The Ministry of Education has informed us that all elementary students in Ontario school boards will return to in-person learning on January 17, 2022. We thank parents and all of our staff for your commitment during the remote learning programming that took place this week. We also ask that your child return the device they used for this week, whether it was a Chromebook or iPad (along with all cords) on Monday, January 17th. Moving forward, students will bring their devices home each evening to be best prepared for any future shifts between remote and in person learning. Please ensure that these devices are returned to school each day to support your child’s educational program. Students who are currently in our remote learning program will continue virtually with their remote learning teachers. 

We will continue to inform our actions with the guidance of the Thunder Bay District Health Unit and the Ministry of Education. As we have stated before, the safety and well-being of our students and our staff is our priority. Although we find ourselves in a pandemic, we will continue to strive to make our students' school experience a positive one.

As we prepare for a return to school on Monday, it will be extremely important that we continue to follow the health and safety protocols that have been put in place in our schools to keep students and staff healthy and safe. We will continue to reinforce the use of masks and hand hygiene, as well as cohorting and physical distancing with students and staff. All students, staff and essential visitors should conduct a daily screening for symptoms of COVID-19 every day before attending school using Ontario's COVID-19 School Screening Tool

As always, we will continue to communicate with you as this ever changing situation evolves including when any confirmed cases are reported to your school. 

If you have additional questions please do not hesitate to contact your school Principal.


Maria Vasanelli, 

Director of Education
