Students in Muskoka are returning to school today, after an extended Christmas Break.

To further promote health and safety for students and staff, the Province will be expanding asymptomatic testing for students and staff, as well as making masks mandatory for students in Grades 1-3, and masking requirement for Grades 1-12 outdoors where physical distancing cannot be maintained.

Schools will be urged to discourage students from congregating before and after school.  As well the province extended temporary certification of eligible teacher candidates who are set to graduate in 2021 to stabilize staffing levels, following high levels of absenteeism.
