​Staggering the Start of the School Year

- being ready in September -

In discussion with the Ministry of Education, the return to class for GECDSB students will follow an updated staggered approach for September.

A staggered approach to school start-up, beginning on September 10th, will provide the GECDSB additional time to reorganize staff assignments and student timetables for all in-person and virtual school classes, and will provide opportunities for schools to ensure that health and safety practices and new school protocols are reviewed and practiced before the full complement of students returns to each building.

This approach allows staff to support our students' successful return to the new school environment in smaller groups to learn and review these important health and safety measures.

A detailed description of the schedule is available on our website: Staggered Start Schedule.
