Unlike the past, this school year in Ontario will see students working in classrooms while some will be remotely learning from home.
Many parents, students and teachers have concerns about back to school. However, there are also concerns about not opening. Experts, like Ontario’s Chief Medical Officer of Health, as well as doctors from Sick Kids, have recommended kids return to school, as routine and structure are extremely important to learning and personal growth.
Students and their teachers have not been in their classrooms for the past six months. Since March, much planning and work has gone into ensuring Ontario’s staff and students head back to school safely.
