Ontario schools to close between March 14 and April 5 in response to COVID-19

Dear Peel District School Board Staff and Families,

As you likely have heard by now, late this afternoon, the Premier's Office announced that it will close all publicly funded schools in Ontario from March 14 to April 5, 2020, in response to the emergence of COVID-19 in Ontario. As a result, all Peel District School Board schools will be closed to students during this time.

We understand this news is sudden, and that you likely have many questions on how these closures will impact you and/or your family. In an effort to help alleviate some of the anxiousness and wonderings you may have, we have started a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) resource on our board website. Please note that this FAQ is a working resource. We will do our best to update the information as we receive confirmation and clarification.

We will continue to do our best to respond to inquiries we receive by email and social media, but given the volume of questions, there may be delays. Again, as the FAQ will be updated regularly, please check it first.

This is all of the information we have at this time. Other COVID-19-related information is posted on our board website.

We appreciate your ongoing patience and understanding as we work through this rapidly evolving, unprecedented event.

Peter Joshua
Director of Education
