Hello VPPS families,
Yesterday, the YRDSB announced plans for a supported entry to the 2020-2021 school year. This staggered return to school during the first two weeks will give our staff additional time to prepare the school for your child’s return and give students time to learn and practice new health and safety measures in smaller groups. Welcoming students back in smaller groups will also enable us to better help students transition back to school and to new school routines.
Students will start school on Thursday, September 10 or Friday, September 11, 2020. Students will be divided into two groups by last name alphabetically and go to school on alternate days for the first four days (i.e. your child will attend school on September 10 and 14 or September 11 and 15). All students in Grades 1-8 will begin attending school every day on Wednesday, September 16.
You will receive information about which days your child will attend school during the supported entry process by September 2, 2020. Please visit the following link for more details about the supported entry plan, including information about virtual learning for those families who have chosen that option: http://www.yrdsb.ca/schools/school-reopening/Pages/default.aspx#August%2026,%202020%20-%20Elementary%20Supported%20Entry
