Dear Parents and Guardians,

Further to yesterday’s direction from the province to close all publicly funded schools in Ontario schools from March 14 to April 5, 2020, the Durham Catholic District School Board (DCDSB) continues to review the impact of this decision.

While we continue to work through the operational considerations and impact on families and staff, we have posted a Question and Answer (Q&A) resource on our board website to help keep our communities informed. We will update this information as we receive confirmation and clarification.

We recognize that some children may develop some uncertainty or anxiety with respect to the impact of Covid-19 in the community and around the world. Our Student Services staff has compiled a resource to help alleviate stress. This resource is available at

We appreciate your ongoing patience and understanding as we work through this rapidly evolving, unprecedented event.
