2022-2023 School Year (YRDSB Message to Families Mar. 10/22)

We know that families may have questions about what to expect during the next school year. Given the numerous benefits of in-person learning, we are planning for our students to attend school in person, while following all appropriate measures to protect the health and safety of students, staff and families

The Ministry of Education has directed school boards to provide a remote learning option for students for 2022-23. For next year, we will have an Elementary Virtual School and Secondary Virtual School.  The parameters of the virtual schools are currently being reviewed.  

Our planned response to the pandemic for next school year does not include a “hybrid” model of learning.

Please note the following information as you begin to contemplate your decisions for next year: 

  •  In April 2022, students and families will be asked to select their learning model for the entire 2022-2023 school year. We will share information with you in the coming weeks about when and how to select your learning model and other information to help you make an informed decision. This will include start and end times, programs and offerings, etc.
  • Families and students should expect to remain in the selected model for the full school year.

We will continue to share updates with you as they become available to help you make an informed decision for the 2022-2023 school year. 

Have a wonderful weekend,

Janine Franklin
