Minister of Education shuts down Ontario schools

School Closures
Posted on 03/12/2020

Based on advice from Ontario's Chief Medical Officer of Health and the experts at the COVID-19 Command Table, the Minister of Education has issued an order to close all publicly funded schools in Ontario for two weeks following March break, in response to the emergence of COVID-19.

This means that all WECDSB schools have been ordered to remain closed from March 14 through to April 5, 2020.

We recognize the significant impact this decision will have on families, students, schools, as well as the broader community, but this precaution is necessary to keep people safe.

We appreciate that there are a number of services in our schools that will be affected by this decision and we will provide more information about those services as details become available.

Please check our web site and follow the board on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram for additional updates.
