Please click the links below for information on reopening schools in fall 2020 and supports for students and families:
At the Upper Grand District School Board, we value mentally healthy schools, classrooms and work sites. This year, in order to further help support the mental health and well-being of UGDSB students and staff, we are introducing The Umbrella Project to schools and offices.
The UGDSB would like to remind all parents that they have an important role to play in preventing COVID-19 in our schools.
Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph Public Health and the school board would like to remind all parents/guardians that they are to screen their children every day for COVID-19 symptoms, prior to coming to school.
A letter to parents/guardians from Dr. Nicola Mercer, Medical Officer of Health and CEO of Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph Public Health.
In order to ensure the safety of students and to provide additional time for staffing schools, the Upper Grand District School Board’s schedule for staggered entry has changed.
In light of recent updates with respect to reopening models and masks, parents/students in both elementary and secondary schools are being given the opportunity to change their original pre-registration decision regarding in-person or remote learning.
The school board has posted information about the reopening models for UGDSB elementary and secondary schools. The overviews contain important information including model structure for conventional and remote learning, sample schedules, remote learning expectations and more.
Parents/guardians, join our mental health clinicians as they discuss different issues and strategies to support your child’s return to school success.
