Schools in Mississauga and Brampton will re-open on February 16
Schools in Mississauga and Brampton will re-open on February 16.
Ontario Education Minister Steve Lecce just announced his government’s plan to get students back into their classrooms which will see most students return next week. However, an extra week is being given to Peel Region, Toronto and York Region — areas that have been the hardest hit by the pandemic
“Ontario is ready to open schools because it is safe,” said Lecce adding that medical experts across the province agree with the move. “Students enjoy in-school learning. That’s the path we will be taking.”
Lecce said measures are being put into place to open schools which, he believes, is the most appropriate way for students to learn.
“If things change we won’t hesitate to change course,” he said.
Lecce said local public health departments will continue to have the authority to close schools if there is a public health threat.
