York Region District School Board Offers Supported Entry for Elementary, Secondary and Online Students

August 26, 2020 – York Region District School Board will offer a supported, or staggered, entry for elementary and secondary students to assist students and staff in the return to school during the COVID-19 pandemic. This will offer opportunities for students to practice and understand new health and safety practices in smaller groups.

“Welcoming students back in smaller groups enables teachers to better help students transition back to school and to new school routines,” said Director of Education Louise Sirisko. “It also gives school staff additional time to prepare schools and classrooms for a safe return.”

The Ministry of Education is allowing school boards to stagger the return to school during the first week of school. The supported entry applies to both face-to-face and online students.

Under the supported entry model, students will begin returning to school on Thursday, September 10, 2020, although the start date may differ depending on their grade and cohort. Consideration has been given to siblings, transportation, and before and after programming. The regular school schedule for all students, both face-to-face and virtual, will begin on Monday, September 14, 2020.
