The provincial government has announced the decision to delay this year’s March Break to help reduce the potential for further spread of COVID-19 across Ontario. The break will now take place from April 12 to 16, 2021.
In Bluewater District School Board, March Break was originally scheduled to occur from March 15 to 19, 2021. Due to today’s provincial decision, school will continue as usual during this period. This also extends to student transportation services, as well as before and after school programs, which will continue uninterrupted.
We recognize that this has been a very unusual school year with many of our students looking forward to a well-deserved break, whether they have been learning in-person or remotely. While we will need to wait a bit longer, we are pleased to hear that another opportunity will be made available in the not-too-distant future for students to have their break.
“I have every confidence that our ongoing commitment to following the advice of our public health officials will pay off. Our schools remain safe and healthy environments for our students and staff. Let us continue to work together and stay the course.
Thank you again for your continued patience and support. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to your child’s teacher or principal,” says Lori Wilder, Director of Education Bluewater District School Board (BWDSB).
