TORONTO — The Toronto District School Board will begin welcoming students back to elementary schools this morning.
Canada’s largest school board is spreading the return to class over three days as part of a staggered reopening plan.
The model will see different grades come back to school on different days, with specifics varying by school.
The board says the drawn-out reopening plan is designed to help children get used to the new safety protocols in place to slow the spread of COVID-19.
Intensive support programs will begin at all Toronto public schools today, including high schools.
The board announced Monday that it was pushing back the start of e-learning courses for all students until next Tuesday, citing a massive spike in enrolment numbers.
