Parents are able to request a change in their child’s mode of learning during the window of September 24 (9:00 a.m.) – September 28 (6:00 p.m.).  An online form will be available on the Waterloo Catholic District School Board’s website ( for those wishing to change.  Students will transition to their new learning environment, in-person or distance learning, on October 13th. In the meantime, we encourage our families to have their child continue to attend their in-person program or engage with their child’s classroom’s virtual learning environment.  If you wish your child to remain in their current mode of learning, please do not complete a form.  Please see the chart below listing the ‘Opportunity to Change’ dates and deadlines.
