To our players, coaches, families and high school sports fans,
On March 12, on the advice from Dr. David Williams, Ontario’s Chief Medical Officer of Health and the experts at the COVID-19 Command Table, the Minister of Education issued a Ministerial Order to close all publicly funded schools in Ontario. Today, the Ministry of Education extended the closure until May 4, 2020, with a possible further extension, if necessary.
With this closure in place, we have made the unfortunate decision to cancel the WCSSAA spring season for the 2019-2020 school year. We know that this information, while not surprising, will still be disappointing to our students, families and staff, all of whom dedicate time and energy to support these important activities. All of us look forward to when these kinds of activities will resume.
Information on how COVID-19 is impacting WRDSB is available on our website. We encourage families and community members to visit the Region of Waterloo Public Health website for accurate information on how COVID-19 is impacting our region.
