Information for students ages 12 years and older, and their families, on pre-registering for the COVID-19 vaccine, as well as upcoming vaccination clinics.
On Thursday May 13, Premier Doug Ford announced that Ontario schools will continue with remote learning for the time being, due to the current COVID-19 situation.
Please note that the Upper Grand District School Board remote learning program for the 2021-22 school year will NOT be a “hybrid model.” Students who register for remote school will be placed in the standalone elementary or secondary remote schools, where classes/courses are staffed by dedicated remote learning teachers.
Researchers from McMaster University and Offord Centre for Child Studies have launched a follow-up province-wide survey to measure and understand how families with children are still coping with COVID-19.
All UGDSB Grade 8 and high school students are invited to fill out an informal survey to indicate their interest in attending the Secondary Remote School for the 2021-22 school year.
The UGDSB will offer a remote learning option for both elementary and secondary students in the 2021-22 school year. Please review this post for preliminary information and upcoming timelines.

On Monday April 12, 2021, the provincial government announced that all Ontario schools would participate in remote learning following the April Break.

Thank you to all Upper Grand District School Board staff, students and families for continuing to follow the COVID-19 health and safety measures that help keep our school communities safe. It is more important than ever that we continue to follow public health advice over the Spring Break.
