Deadline Nears for Students to Opt-Out of In-Person Learning


The deadline for students with the Greater Essex County District School Board to opt-out of in-person learning is approaching.

Students and parents have until Aug. 6 to file an opt-out form or they will automatically be enrolled to attend school in-person.

Virtual learning was used through several stretches of the COVID-19 pandemic and will continue to be an option for public elementary and secondary students.

An opt-out form will be sent to families through e-mail and will be shared on the board's website on Wednesday July 28.
