On Wednesday, August 25, 2021 at 7:00 – 8:00 p.m., Director of Education, Pat Daly will be joining Dr. Meghani as she shares important information with our HCDSB community on how to ensure a safe and healthy return to school for students and staff.

  • The current status of COVID-19 cases in Halton;
  • The protective strategies that will be in place in our schools this coming school year to support the health and well-being of students and staff;
  • The management of COVID-19 in schools during the 2021-2022 school year.

The webinar will be live streamed on our HCDSB YouTube Channel and will be accessible to our Deaf and Hard of Hearing (DHH) community through closed captioning, as well as an ASL Interpreter. A recording of the webinar will be posted on our school and board websites at a later date for those unable to watch the session live.
