Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board is planning for the majority of students to return to in-person learning with enhanced safety precautions in place in September 2021. However, given ongoing uncertainly regarding future outcomes in the face of COVID-19, we will continue to offer a virtual school as part of our pandemic response in the 2021-2022 school year. HPEDSB will offer a Kindergarten to Grade 10 Virtual School option, should families decide it fits their child/ren’s style of learning and meets the needs of their family. Programming for Grade 11 and 12 students will be provided through their home secondary school.
Please read the full letter from Director Monteith regarding HPEDSB Virtual School enrolment here.
The provincial government announced that March Break will be delayed to the week of April 12, 2021. This decision was made based on advice of Ontario’s Chief Medical Officer of Health and public health officials. For further information, please read the letter from Director Sean Monteith available here.
