Covid-19

Dear Parents,

Thank you for your patience and understanding while we go through these tumultuous times. We want to provide you an update after considering the Government of Ontario’s decision yesterday afternoon to close all publicly funded schools. After reviewing municipal, provincial, and federal directives, we are following their advice to close down the school for two weeks following the March break. We have made this decision to ensure the safety of our staff and students, as our community’s wellbeing is our top priority.

We will remain closed until Monday April 6, 2020 and again provide regular updates as the situation evolves. We want to reassure you all that we will be putting a plan in place to support your children’s learning and will updating you on this throughout the next few weeks.

Additionally for all international travelers a 14-day quarantine will be required from the day you return to Canada. In light of what is happening we advise that your reconsider your travel plans. We are asking all Staff, and Parents to please fill out our travel survey. This survey will help ensure that we are doing everything we can to ensure our community is safe.

We hope that our community stays safe over the next couple of weeks. Please make sure to practise regular hand washing and recommended sanitary practices. We encourage you to regularly check York Region Public Health, Public Health Ontario, and the Public Health Agency of Canada for further updates.

Thank you,

UMS Administration
