With the volume of people working and learning from home during the province-wide lockdown, it’s expected the outage had a widespread impact.

The Windsor Essex Catholic District School Board does not know how many students and teachers were affect, but called all households to advise some may not be able to access “Google Classroom” and other online platforms required for class activities during the outage.
