KPDSB Response to COVID-19
As announced on March 12, 2020, all publicly funded schools in Ontario, including all KPDSB schools, are closed from March 14, 2020, to April 5, 2020 (please click here to view the official announcement).
The Keewatin-Patricia District School Board is well prepared for a pandemic. During a pandemic, the KPDSB will follow the advice and guidance of provincial and local public health officials who have the expertise to assess the level of health risk posed by a specific situation.

In preparation for the return of staff and students to our schools on April 6, 2020, Custodial Staff will be working a day shift Monday through Friday during the week of March 30th – April 3rd, 2020, to do a deep clean of all facilities. School buses are also receiving extensive cleaning to prepare for students returning to class, please click here for more information from the Northwestern Ontario Students Services Consortium.
Heightened cleaning practices will continue in schools/sites and on school buses once schools reopen.
