Return to School

- plan for the 2021-22 school year -

The Greater Essex County District School Board is planning for a return to in-person learning for all students, K-12, in September 2021.

This is considered the best learning model for students – academically, emotionally and physically. We are hopeful, as solutions to the COVID-19 pandemic continue to develop and vaccinations become more available, that we will be able to welcome them back in school for the upcoming school year.

An opportunity will be offered to students and families to opt out of in-person learning. They will be able to confirm a preference for remote learning between July 28th and August 6, 2021.

Elementary students who choose a remote learning option will participate in the elementary virtual school. Secondary students opting out of in-person learning will attend classes through their home schools through webcams.

Detailed information will be provided and regularly updated on our website throughout the coming months.
