We are busy planning for the 2021-2022 school year, and are excited about returning to in-person learning in September. We believe this is best for students' learning, mental health, and well-being. A return to in-person means our students can be face-to-face with their teachers and peers for a full-day of learning. Students will be engaged in a wide array of curricular opportunities including hands-on and experiential learning. It also means the return of extracurriculars including athletics, clubs, and other engaging activities. We will begin with outdoor opportunities and will make modifications to other activities to ensure they uphold necessary protocols directed by Niagara Region Public Health. Over time, schools will add to the complement of extracurricular offerings that students can participate in.
Our finalized plans for the 2021-2022 school year will be shared with families in mid-August to ensure we provide as much detailed information as possible. These plans will include information about your child's school schedule, as well as health and safety protocols provided by Ministry of Education and Niagara Region Public Health.
If you're like most families, and your child will be returning to in-person learning, you don't need to do anything. All students have been automatically registered in their home schools for September.
If you would like your child to remain online, remote learning options will be available for students who require it. Parents will have an opportunity to communicate their children's needs regarding remote learning in mid-August through an online portal.
While we are making plans for a full return to in-person, full-day, everyday learning in September, we recognize that we will need to be ready to provide different options if circumstances pertaining to COVID-19 change. Should that happen, we will share information with DSBN families via our website, social media and through your child's school. If you have questions or concerns, please contact your home school principal.
