Windsor-Essex-Co.-Health-Unit logo.pngBy order of the Medical Officer of Health, Dr. Wajid Ahmed, all schools in our region will be closed to students for the week of December 14-18, 2020.

​WECHU Public Statement - 2:00 p.m. Dec. 10

The Health Unit has been clear that this action is to reduce the spread of COVID-19 cases occurring in the community.  Our schools are safe places to learn. 

Learning will continue for all students on-line for the week. Elementary students are to follow their current school's start and end times.  Secondary students, in the Adapted model, will shift to on-line 150-minute learning blocks - separated by a one hour break – each day.  Please consult your school's website for detailed start and end times.

There will be no changes for elementary and secondary students in the GEC Virtual schools.

All schools will remain open for staff for the week and full-time daycare facilities will also remain open.

Any families with technology needs please contact your school Principal support inquiries should email: 

​Schools are scheduled to reopen to students following the holiday break on January 4th unless otherwise notified by the Windsor-Essex County Health Unit.

Updates will be posted on our website,
