Good Afternoon St. Joseph Families,

On Sunday, April 26 2020, the Ontario Government announced that schools will remain closed under emergency order until at least May 31, 2020 (Announcement).

Should schools be permitted to reopen at that time, school employees will have access as of May 29, 2020.

The extension was based on expert advice from the Chief Medical Officer of Health and health officials on the COVID-19 Command Table and is part of the government’s ongoing effort to stop the spread of COVID-19.

Today, the Minister of Education released this SPECIAL MESSAGE (click on this link or see attachment at the end) to parents.

As we move forward, please remember that on our WCDSB board website you will find from our home page a link to WCDSBLearn@Home where a host of additional resources for all learners will be found.  We also encourage you to continue to visit our WCDSBPray@Home webpage as well as our FAQ page.  You can also follow the #STEAMDays hashtag where lots of fun and engaging activities are being posted.
