As you know, the Premier of Ontario and Minister of Education recently announced the first phase of Learn at Home (Apprendre à la Maison), a new online portal that will provide resources for families, so students can continue their education while schools are closed due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation.
In the Waterloo Region District School Board (WRDSB), our students come first – each and every one. Our school buildings may be temporarily closed, but supportive learning can continue. With this in mind, we are announcing WRDSB@Home. This website will act as a hub to offer service outside the classroom to support our students’ academic growth. The button below can be found on all our websites and will take you directly there.
Information regarding WRDSB@Home, a WRDSB developed and supported distance learning framework is coming soon. Please ensure you are subscribed to your school’s website, so you receive email updates when new content is added to this website.
How to subscribe to your school’s website
At the bottom of all WRDSB websites, you can add your email address to subscribe to notifications whenever news items are posted. If you wish to follow multiple WRDSB school websites, you will need to subscribe to each site individually.
