Recently, Ontario Premier Doug Ford, announced that elementary schools will not resume in-person classes until Monday, January 11th.
That means that we will not be returning for in-person classes at Fern Hill School following the holiday break, but will be participating in virtual classes instead.
The week of January 4-8, 2021 will be as follows:
• Monday, January 4, 2021 PD day – no school for students. This day will allow the staff to prepare for the virtual learning program that will take place. Teachers will contact the students in their class by email with the schedule, what they will need to prepare and the necessary Zoom links. In addition to the schedule, we will also send out the school’s virtual guidelines to assist with at-home schooling.
• Tuesday, January 5th to Friday, January 8th, 2021. Virtual classes – Classes will run virtually via Zoom. (The Ontario Premier announced that elementary schools would re-open on Monday, January 11th. Let’s hope that is the case. Parents will be informed of any changes as they are announced.)
When we return to in-person classes we will continue with the daily screening process and will follow OPH guidelines.
Best wishes to all families for a happy and safe holiday season and for 2021.
