Return of regular semesters and release of COVID-19 funding is great news for students and school boards

We are very pleased to see that secondary schools will be able to return to normal semester models with four courses per day, as of February 2022 and earlier where scheduling permits, subject to local public health approval.

OPSBA and our member boards very much appreciate the release of the second half of the federal COVID-19 funding, for which we have strongly advocated.

The decision to give all students five rapid antigen tests to take home over the Winter Break will be welcomed by school communities across the province.

OPSBA statement on education vaccination policy and strategy

We must do all we can to give our schools the greatest chance of staying open for in-person learning, which is vital to the mental health and development of our students. This vaccination regime, with frequent testing for those who choose to not receive or disclose having received a COVID-19 vaccine, is a positive step towards helping school boards ensure the safest possible environment for our students, staff, and school communities. Conversations about the best approach to mitigate the presence of COVID-19 in public schools must be continued.
