Mississauga, Brampton Catholic school students get more time to consider remote learning

Catholic school students in Mississauga, Brampton and Caledon have received an extra 10 days to decide if they want to temporarily switch from in-person to remote learning.

Initially, parents and guardians of students were to let their teachers know of their decision by today (Jan. 4).

However, given the provincial government’s announcement yesterday that the Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board and other boards across Ontario were all moving to at-home learning until at least Jan. 17, the deadline was extended to Jan. 14.

By that time, parents/guardians must let their children’s teachers know if they want to temporarily stay with remote learning (until start of second semester for high school students and until Feb. 22 for younger pupils) or if they’ll return to the classroom when schools are expected to reopen on Jan. 17.

Dufferin-Peel Board Education Director Marianne Mazzorato said in a bulletin to parents that teachers will deliver instruction to both in-person and remote learners simultaneously during the period in question.
