Minister writes letter to parents

In a recent letter to parents of students in Ontario, Minister of Education Stephen Lecce said that the next school year may not look or feel the same as it did just 10 months ago.

“With that in mind,” he said, “I have directed all school boards to plan for three scenarios:


• A return to conventional, regular classroom instruction, with health and safety requirements,

• A continuation of remote learning, including the use of live, synchronous online instruction, and;

• An adapted delivery model that enables students to return to class with blended virtual learning, that includes health and safety requirements that will limit the maximum number of students to 15 per class.

Local and regional health authorities – in conjunction with a Ministry of Education established table of medical experts – will help shape the way forward, to ensure the realities on the ground within your communities are best reflected.”
