In light of the current Public Health situation in Ontario due to COVID-19, the Halton Catholic District School Board will continue to offer a virtual school setting for Kindergarten to Grade 8, together with those awarded placements in our optional virtual programing for French Immersion (Grade 1 to 8) and Extended French Grade 5 to Grade 8 for 2021-2022 school year.
In March, we reached out to all parents and guardians with children attending an HCDSB Catholic Elementary School to ask them to provide an early indication of their intentions for the 2021-2022 school year. This information was gathered early to help us determine how many teachers will be required to staff our Virtual Elementary School, and how many teachers will be needed for in-person learning. Understanding that the health situation would continue to evolve over the next few months, we told parents that we would come back to them again in June to confirm their decision.
Specifically, we are asking elementary parents to confirm their plans for September 2021:
1. Will your child(ren) attend school in-person, with enhanced health and safety protocols in place; OR
At this time, we are asking that elementary parents confirm their decision by completing the online form linked below if you would like your child to attend the HCDSB Virtual Catholic Elementary School.
