Two million children in Ontario will return to in-person learning on Jan. 17 following an extended break from physical classrooms, provincial officials have confirmed.
This will include both elementary and high school students.
Schools in the province were originally slated to return to in-person learning on Jan. 3.
That planned return to class was expected no earlier than Jan. 17. Ford said that the date would be reassessed based on public health indicators.
“These two weeks will provide much-needed time for more vaccines and boosters,” Ford said at the time of the announcement.
