Learning Model 2022-2023

The Government of Ontario recently announced that school boards must continue to offer students virtual learning for the 2022-2023 school year.  Accordingly, for 2022-2023 school year, YRDSB is providing face-to-face (F2F) and virtual learning. Virtual learning will be offered through an Elementary Virtual School (EVS) and Secondary Virtual School (SVS). 

If your child will be attending school in-person (face-to-face) next year, no action is required.  

If you would like your child to attend a virtual school for the 2022-2023 school year, or would like more information about the virtual schools please refer to the email sent by YRDSB to parents on Thursday March 31, 2022.

Daily Screening Reminder

Students, staff members and visitors are to continue to review and adhere to the COVID-19 School and Child-Care Screening Tool (please click on Check for Symptoms Daily), prior to entering the school daily.  The screening tool has been updated to reflect new masking and isolation requirements. 

Masks: Students, staff members and visitors to school will no longer be required to wear masks in school. Individuals who feel more comfortable, are advised or required to wear a mask can continue to wear a mask and will be supported in doing so. Although masks are not mandatory, we are encouraging students to continue to wear a mask. 

York Region Public Health is strongly encouraging students/attendees, staff and visitors to continue wearing a mask for at least two weeks after March Break in areas with the 3 Cs: crowded settings, places where there is close contact or when spaces may be confined.”

Additional information about what to do if you have tested positive or been exposed to a positive case can also be found at www.york.ca/safeatschool. Please note that close contacts of a COVID-19 case who are not required to isolate must self-monitor for 10 days (from last exposure) and wear a well-fitted mask in school and child care settings. This includes avoiding activities such as high-contact sports and where masking and/or physical distancing cannot be maintained.  


Parents/guardians who are driving to school should review the map below.

  • Parents/guardians should not be stopping on the street (dotted red line on the map) where stopping is NOT permitted and letting their children out, this is unsafe and it blocks traffic.  
  • Parents/guardians should NOT park in the school parking lot or bus loop. The parking lot is for staff parking only. 
  • Parents/guardians should NOT be parking where there is a solid red line on the map during drop-off or pick-up
  • When dropping off in the loop it is important that you pull up to the front and drive slowly and remain patient as we ensure student safety.

Autism Awareness Month

This year, on April 4, 2022, York Region District School Board (YRDSB) is officially launching a month-long World Autism Acceptance campaign alongside our community partners from Autism Ontario, a member of our Special Education Advisory Committee (SEAC).

This year we are moving from raising awareness for Autism to increasing acceptance.

Acceptance and awareness come from vastly different mindsets. Awareness seeks to highlight how Other we are and emphasizes the differences and distance between our ways of being. Acceptance looks at commonalities we share and at the strength inherent in diversity. (Autistic Self Advocacy Network, 2014)

Sikh Heritage Month

April is an important month for the Sikh community. In this month, Sikh Canadians celebrate Vaisakhi, which marks the creation of the Khalsa and the Sikh articles of faith. Sikh Canadians widely celebrate Vaisakhi, also known as Khalsa Day, across Ontario. 

As we enter the month of April, staff and students are encouraged to join Ontarians and Canadians who will be coming together to celebrate how Sikh Canadians have made significant contributions to the growth and prosperity of Ontario and Canada’s social, economic, political, and cultural fabric.
