Bluewater Board open letter to parents and guardians for return to school

December 30, 2021

Dear Parents/Guardians:

It was announced today (December 30th) by the provincial government that the return date for students following the holiday break at all publicly funded schools in Ontario is being delayed by two days in response to the recent surge in COVID-19 cases across the province. Click here to view the provincial media release.

As a result of today’s announcement, all elementary and secondary schools in Bluewater District School Board will reopen to students for in-person learning on Wednesday, January 5, 2022 as opposed to the originally scheduled date of Monday, January 3, 2022. Please note that remote learning will not be occurring during the two-day delay period.

We appreciate the continued patience and cooperation of our students and families as we work through this slight delay period together, and look forward to seeing everyone again soon.
