These idiots have no concept of due notice.

As if everyone can just drop everything and rearrange on a minutes notice.

School tomorrow. No school tomorrow. Parents need time to plan, same as teachers.

I have contacts in TDSB and they know as much as the public. When asked what the hell Is going on I was told, “just watch CP24 like the rest of us to find out”. It’s insane that the school boards are completely in the dark. Expected but insane. They had like 2 years to figure this shit out and yet nothing has changed to make the schools or going to school safer.

Opening schools is just going to make it worse and put students at risk… Not a good idea!

I'm curious as to those who work in the school system, are you guys worried about staffing like us hospital workers are? I mean, we're already overworked with colleagues calling in sick and rising numbers of COVID patients requiring isolation.

If there's not enough supply teachers for the regular teachers who will inevitably get sick, does the class of students just ... sit around? I guess as the infection spreads, absenteeism will be similar for kids and teachers, thus it's a bit different than hospital situation.

Since Ford isn't reporting school cases anymore, there will be no more isolations or temporarily closures for outbreaks. I get the show must go on eventually, but surely there will be points where there's just not enough teachers no?

So we delayed reopening schools to get control of the situation, people vaccinated, masks and hepa filters. Statistically speaking definetly don’t have control of it yet - but did any of the other stuff happen or is this once again just playing politicos with policy?

Bet you a dollar he tells us he put air purifiers in the class rooms but he won’t tell us he only put 8000 of out there. Wonder if there are more than 8000 class rooms in Ontario lmao. “We threw breadcrumbs and the minimum for public safety and perception, that’s a good job right” /s.

Curious to hear how @Sflecce & @FordFoundation are going to explain why they are sending the students and staff to school on Monday when C-19 hospitalization are still rising … which is the main reason why they sent them online after X-Mas Break! “Following The Data” they said! https://t.co/​N8r1hwRpKf

I saw this mentioned on twitter re Peel school board. Did anyone else get this email? anyone here applying?

Got an email from my son's school today asking for people to apply to become "Emergency Temporary Coverage School Monitors," in case the school can't find supply teachers or in school teachers.

In a written statement issued Tuesday, Education Minister Stephen Lecce said the provincial government has been preparing for the return of in-class learning “by doing as much as we can to improve ventilation, provide high quality PPE and expand access to vaccinations.”

"We gave each school a brand new box of masks!"

Both of them have been busy installing hepa filters in each classroom and making classroom safer for the past 7 days; see, what they've accomplished in 7 days but couldn't do in 18+ months regardless of their promises. Laziest MOE in Canada! #onpoli #onted

How is it in the second wave we needed 85% vaccinated to open economy, but now we send 5 to 11 year olds back to school with less then 50%. I am not opposed to kids back to school but under 50% makes no sense
