Keewatin Patricia District School Board Director of Education Sherri-Lynne Pharand says they're preparing for the return to the classroom in the Fall.
"We don't know where COVID-19 will take us, but in the event we will be back to be back face-to-face in school in the Fall, we do know there will still be some changes to school because of what we have learned about the transmission of the virus. So, safety will be number one," she said.
Pharand says they're creating a plan for what the school day will look like for students.
"We're looking at walking through a school day. From the moment a child gets on the bus, to when they arrive at school, all the way to dismissal. We're looking at every area of the school, both elementary and secondary, where we might need to change practice or enhance cleaning. All of those types of things to keep children safe," she said.
Pharand says they're also working on a plan to help enhance student learning in a virtual setting. They're taking notes on what works currently, and what they can improve on before September.
Education Minister Stephen Lecce has said the province will release their back to school plan before the end of June.
