As per the recent Ministry  of  Education directives, students who have a medical note confirming that they, or a household member, have a health condition that makes them vulnerable to COVID-19 may be entitled to online learning from home.

Parents are asked to complete a request form and provide a medical note to their child’s school. All medical notes must be dated as of August 10, 2020. Each request will then be forwarded to the school board for final approval.

Once the request is approved, the EMSB will contact the parent with all pertinent information. The EMSB will offer education at a distance in order to ensure that each child continues to receive quality instruction.
