Closures and cancellations due to COVID-19

03/12/2020
On May 19, the Premier’s Office announced that all publicly funded schools in Ontario will remain closed for the duration of the 2019-2020 school year, in response to COVID-19. As such, Simcoe County District School Board (SCDSB) schools and adult learning centres will not reopen on May 31, 2020. The decision to extend the school closure period for the remainder of the school year is based on advice from Ontario's Chief Medical Officer of Health in order to protect the health and safety of students, families and staff. 

The following programs/meetings will not run or are closed:
  • Permits (Community Use of Schools)
  • All EarlyON and Child Care Centres
  • Adult and continuing education
  • Dual Credit and Cooperative education programs
In addition, the Education Centre and the Career Centre are closed to the public.
