Parents and teachers are anxiously awaiting a possible announcement on the fate of the school year later this week.

DSBN Superintendent of Curriculum and Student Achievement JoAnna Roberto says they are preparing for several possibilities.

"We will have options for summer learning, for sure, ready to go as soon as we hear from the ministry. And it could look like online - partial online component."

Education Minister Stephen Lecce says student safety is paramount, but has given no further hint as to what is going to happen.

Yesterday he said he would be working with medical officials to come up with a program and would 'hopefully' provide more clarity 'in the coming days.'
