School Closed starting Wednesday, April 7, 2021
Dear Parents/Guardians and Students,
This is a very important update about the status of in-person learning at Bloorview School Authority. Toronto Public Health (TPH), has just announced that all schools in Toronto, including Bloorview School Authority, will be closed to in-person learning as of Wednesday, April 7, 2021 and remain closed up to and including Sunday, April 18, 2021. This TPH order is being made under Section 22 of Ontario’s Health Protection and Promotion Act in an effort to slow the spread of COVID-19.
For the remainder of this week, students and staff will move to remote learning and the April Break scheduled for next week will continue as normal. Please note that, unlike the closure in January and February, this applies to Bloorview School Authority as well.
We are going to try and send home your child's equipment with them today as well as technology for those who have requested it in the past. If something does not come home with your child that you need, please let us know and we will do our best to get it to you if possible.
While we recognize that you may still have a number of questions, please know that we will share additional information once we receive it. In the meantime, we wanted to ensure you received this initial information as soon as possible. We know that this TPH order will impact our families in a number of different ways but we will do all that we can to support students and staff through this period. Teachers will be connecting with families about next steps on remote learning in the days ahead.
