Ontario Education Minister says consultations are still taking place in regards to a return to school plan. He says they're preparing for all possibilities a return to school could mean.
"I can assure parents there will be protocol that will ensure the safety of kids. We are looking at all options on the table. You are right to note there could be risks in terms of a second wave or other types of challenges we have to be ready for in the government, and we are planning for those eventualities," he said.
Lecce added they're working with the best minds to come up with a plan for the return to school in the Fall.
"The plan and the intention is, as we have communicated to date, is that working with the best medical and scientific minds in the country. We've put together a team that is informing cabinet on how to re open, what those protocols should look like. I don't want to get a head of that process, because to be fair we are continuing to consult. Not just with medical and scientific minds, but with educators, parents and students about what that should look like," he said.
Lecce said in May that they would be releasing the plan for the Fall return to school before the end of June.
