Bulldog Bulletin – Week of January 25, 2021
Virtual Learning Extended
The Ministry of Education announced last week schools in Waterloo Region will continue learning remotely for at least the next two weeks. It is our understanding the Ministry is looking at February 11th as a possible return to school date; however, nothing has been confirmed. Once we receive more information, we will be sure to share it with our school community.
Changing Modes of Learning – Postponed
If you are interested in changing the mode of learning for your child (moving from St. Isidore Virtual School back to St. Kateri OR moving from St. Kateri to St. Isidore), we ask for your patience. Once the school closure has ended and in-person learning resumes, the board will consider a new date for this to take place.
