Ontario Extends Teacher-Led Online Learning
Friday, January 8, 2021
As COVID-19 cases continue to rise at an alarming rate throughout the province, the Ontario government, in consultation with the Chief Medical Officer of Health and other health experts, is extending certain measures to keep students, education staff, and residents of Northern Ontario safe.
The new measures include extending online teacher-led learning until January 25, 2021, for elementary school students in the 27 Southern Ontario public health unit regions and extending the shutdown in Northern Ontario for another 14 days, aligning with the shutdown period in Southern Ontario.
In response to increasing community transmission, in-person learning will be deferred to January 25, 2021, in Southern Ontario, which aligns with the planned return of in-person learning for secondary school students in these regions.
Elementary students and secondary students in the seven Northern Ontario public health unit regions will proceed with returning to in-person learning on January 11, 2021.
