The Toronto District School Board says students will be able to switch between in-person and virtual learning at various points throughout the school year.

Parents have until Saturday to register their child for either in class or on-line learning for the start of the year,but in its updated back to school plan posted online, the TDSB says at both the elementary and secondary level, there will be three opportunities throughout the year to switch.

For elementary students – the earliest opportunity to change between either online or in person learning is just after the thanksgiving long weekend – the deadline to request that change is September 30th.

November 6th and January 29th are the next deadlines.

For secondary students – the option to switch will be provided at the end of each quadmester – with the first one going into effect November 12th.
the deadline for that is October 15th.

The full list can be found on the TDSB website.
