Registration for the 2023-2024 UGDSB Remote Program

Posted January 12, 2023

The Upper Grand District School Board is looking forward to continuing to offer the Erin Public School Remote Program for the 2023-2024 school year. This program is an option for elementary students only. While we believe that in-person learning best supports students, we recognize that some families may want their child to learn remotely, due to their unique circumstances. The decision families make about remote learning vs. in-person learning for 2023-2024 will be for the entire school year, as movement between learning modes during the school year can cause disruptions for students, families, and classrooms.
