The Durham Catholic District School Board is moving the first week of classes online due to a delay in busing.
For the most part, Durham Student Transportation Services will not be able to provide busing to schools across the region until Sept. 14.
“As a result of this new development, it has been necessary to modify the board’s return to learning plan. The week of September 8 to 11 will be conducted virtually with a modified schedule of contact and classes,” reads a media release from the Catholic board.
“The focus at that time will be on preparing students to return to in-class learning. Busing and face-to-face learning in-class will begin during the week of September 14.”

“I would like to express my appreciation to parents and guardians for their continued patience and understanding as we work through these uncommon days in preparation for the return to learning,” said Director of Education Tracy Barill.
“Thank you to principals and staff who are working diligently to adapt to the most current circumstances to support our families.”
