International Literacy Day


The Tuesday after Labour Day is traditionally the first day of School in Ontario, but due to the ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic, many of the schools have delayed the return date for 1 week as additional preparations are being made.  Many families have chosen the on-line option so people in areas with high speed internet may not be attending in person.
