General Questions

If things improve, can I send my child back to their school during the year?

Yes, we recognize that every situation is different and some students will be able to return to school before others.  Students are able to transition back to their school when the families are ready for them to do so.  However, once a student transitions back to their school, they may not be able to re-register with Learning Online.

Parent information nights and student orientations will take place towards the end of August and the beginning of September.  More information about these opportunities will be shared with families once the dates are set.
