Students from Kindergarten to Grade 6 will remain in classrooms— Aside from Westbrook, Mitford and Fireside Schools previously who moved to online learning Monday.

Students impacted by the move online will be contacted by their school and their teachers about how learning will be supported during this temporary at-home period as quickly as possible. 

More to come.
