Pre-Register for School by August 14

All UGDSB schools have been directed by the Ministry to open schools in a conventional model – that means schools will be open to students for full time, in-person learning, five days a week. Parents have the choice to keep their children home and participate in remote/distance learning if they do not feel comfortable sending their child to school. In order to plan for school, all students must pre-register for school this year and indicate if the will attend school in person or through remote learning from home.

To learn more about these options and to pre-register, visit All students must be pre-registered for school by the deadline of August 14, 2020.
