Posted: 2022-01-03 14:36:48 By: thebay

From the District of Muskoka:  

Earlier today, the Premier announced that schools would remain closed to in-person learning.  Students enrolled in publicly-funded schools across Muskoka will now be engaged in virtual learning effective Wednesday, January 5, 2022.

The District Municipality of Muskoka has begun to work with child care centre operators, school boards, the Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit, and the Province to re-establish Emergency Child Care.  Re-establishing the Emergency Child Care program will take time.

The District will be providing updates on the availability of Emergency Child Care, including worker eligibility criteria (pending confirmation from the Province), locations, and start date as the information becomes available.  For the most up-to-date information, please visit our website at www.muskoka.on.ca/emergencychildcare.
