Announcement of School Closure Due to COVID-19
Last week the Minister of Education issued an order to all publicly funded school boards to close schools from March 14 until April 5. This three-week closure is an attempt to disrupt the spread of COVID-19, particularly in relation to international travel over the original March break week.
At UMCA, we were trying to avoid such closure, but as Premier Doug Ford has declared a provincial state of emergency amid a worsening COVID-19 outbreak, and instructed the closure of all schools and day cares, we must follow these instructions .
We encourage all students, their families and staff members to follow the advice of local, provincial and federal health agencies, including advisories related to travel.
We all hope this crisis will pass quickly and we wish you all to stay healthy. School will hopefully re-open on April 5th.
