Learning at Home

Learn at Home Online Resource from Ontario Government - https://www.ontario.ca/page/learn-at-home

On March 20, 2020, the Ministry of Education and Government of Ontario launched the first phase of Learn at Home (click to follow the link) and Apprendre à la maison, a new online portal that will provide resources for families so students can continue their education while schools are closed due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation.  

Additional Online Resources

In addition to the Learn at Home portal, our staff have put together a list of Board-approved online resources for families.  Beside each link you will see an indication of which grade level the resources are recommended for.  The resources at the top of the list are for our youngest learners, please scroll down for older grades.

PLEASE NOTE - For Secondary resources (Grades 9-12), please scroll down to below the Elementary resources.
