Return to In Person Learning at your Home School

Our Virtual School staff do an amazing job of offering a quality learning program, however, we know that your circumstances may have changed and a return to in-person learning could now be a better fit for your family. If you would like your child to move to in-person learning, our formal process has ended for fall. However, schools will continue to accept and process applications throughout the winter months if space allows.

Should you decide that you would like your child to return to in-person learning at their home school, kindly complete the form below. Completion of this form will signal your intent and initiate the process for return. Each request will be reviewed by the Home School Principal, and you will be contacted to discuss the timing for return. We encourage you to keep your child in Virtual learning while the appropriate organizational, staffing and safety requirements are arranged.
Please note: The next formal opportunity for your child to return to in-person learning will be in early Spring.

Return to In Person Learning at your Home School

Welcome to our DSBN Virtual School!

The DSBN Virtual School was created for the 2020/2021 school year for families who have chosen to have their children learn from home. Your supervision and assistance are key to your child’s success. In addition to your help, your child will be supported by specific classroom teachers through D2L, our virtual learning environment. Unlike at-home learning that took place in the spring of 2020, classroom online learning requires students to meet all outcomes of the Ontario Curriculum.

Letter Regarding Virtual Core French

Thank you for your patience as we’ve worked through the process of setting up Core French instruction. As you know, there is a provincial shortage of qualified French teachers and staffing our Core French programs (both face-to-face and virtual) is a challenge. We are continually working on solutions to this challenge and feel optimistic that our virtual students will eventually benefit from both asynchronous and synchronous French instruction.… Read More
