Kawartha Pine Ridge District School Board Masks Mandatory When School Returns – For Most

In Local

To KPR Families in Northumberland and Peterborough Counties,
Today (Wednesday January 20, 2021), the provincial government announced schools in Ontario will reopen to in-person learning on varying dates, depending on the status of COVID-19 cases within each Health Unit’s region.

KPR elementary and secondary schools in Northumberland County and Peterborough City and County will reopen this Monday, January 25. Schools in this area are covered by three Health Units: the Haliburton Kawartha Pine Ridge, Peterborough, and Hastings Prince Edward Health Units.

The province has also announced that masks will be mandatory for Grades 1-12 students when they return to in-person schooling, regardless of the date. Masks will be highly recommended, but not mandatory, for Kindergarten students. New masking requirements will also be in place for outdoor activities where physical distancing of at least two metres is not possible.

We look forward to seeing students whose families opted for in-person learning back in class at Northumberland and Peterborough-area schools on January 25.

We will share further information from the provincial government as it becomes available.
