Section 1: Background and Guiding Principles

The Upper Canada District School Board is looking forward to welcoming students and staff safely back to school in September. The school district, in close collaboration with the Ministry of Education and with our local Medical Officers of Health, will be reopening schools for instruction on September 11, 2020. Changes to routines and procedures are to be expected as we put requirements for enhanced health and hygiene practices in place in our schools.

The operational practices that are outlined in this document are based on UCDSB’s School Reopening Plan – July 2020, which was reviewed by the UCDSB Board of Trustees (July 2020) and the Ontario of Ministry of Education (August 2020). As our school staff turn their attention to the start up to the new school year, we want to ensure that they have the most recent information and specific advice from the Ministry of Education and the Chief Medical Officers of Health to support the reopening of their school site.

These operational procedures and practices will evolve as new information becomes available and adjustments are necessary to respond to the most recent information that translates into maintaining safe, clean, and supportive school settings.
