Dear Parents and Guardians,
Premier Doug Ford announced this afternoon that Ontario schools will remain closed to in-person learning for the remainder of this school year. Near North District School Board (NNDSB) students will continue to learn remotely until the end of the month.
While it is disappointing that staff and students won’t be able to see each other in person before the school year ends, the board looks forward to a return to face-to-face instruction.
If you have questions about your child’s learning, please reach out to their teacher.
NNDSB’s website features resources for families, including learning and mental health supports. The website, as well as the board’s Facebook and Twitter accounts, are updated regularly and are a great source of news and information for families.
We learned today that school boards are authorized, after consulting with public health units, to hold outdoor graduations. NNDSB will be reaching out to the health unit to discuss the possibility of outdoor graduations. If you have a student graduating, watch for communication from your child’s school regarding their graduation ceremony.
Thank you for your support.
Near North District School Board
