Supported Entry

The Ministry of Education is allowing school boards to stagger the return to school during the first week of school. This will give school staff additional time to prepare the school for your child’s return and give students time to learn and practice new health and safety measures in saller groups. Welcoming students back in smaller groups will enable educators to better help students transition back to school and to new school routines. 


You will receive information from your child’s school as soon as possible to confirm dates.  While unlikely, please note that in the event of unforeseen or emergency circumstances, these start dates may change - if this occurs, we will notify you immediately. 


A separate supported entry plan has been developed for students in:

Kindergarten

  • Students in Year 2 Kindergarten will start school Thursday, September 10, 2020. They will attend school every day for the full school day.

  • Students in Year 1 Kindergarten will start school Monday, September 14 or Tuesday, September 15, 2020.

    • Students will be divided into two groups by last name alphabetically and go to school on alternate days (i.e. students attend for a full day on September 14 and 16 or September 15 and 17). 

    • All Year 1 Kindergarten students will begin attending school every day on Friday, September 18.

  • All kindergarten students who are placed in a community class will be invited to attend all day every day beginning on September 10th.
