WRDSB Commitment to Student Learning
Our students come first – each and every one. Our school buildings may be temporarily closed, but supportive learning can continue. We will use WRDSB@Home website to offer service outside the classroom to support our students’ academic growth.
People, and especially children, have an innate curiosity and desire to learn under any conditions, and we would like to partner with you in this unique time of distance learning. We will use this website to post age-appropriate, high-quality learning materials and support for your family’s consideration to allow you to supplement the Ministry resources and personalize your child’s learning. Please know, you are not alone in this and we are here for you.
We are committed to equitable learning opportunities and ensuring that no student is disadvantaged in their learning as a result of school closure. We are actively considering additional ways to provide distance learning for students who do not have access to the internet, students who have an Individual Education Plan, students whose first language is not English, and students who do not have a member of the household who can assist in daily learning.

Learn at Home from the Province of Ontario
As you know, the Premier of Ontario and Minister of Education announced Learn at Home (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.
The at-home activities offered by Learn at Home provide quick and easy access to some of Ontario’s best online kindergarten to grade 12 learning resources produced by the Ontario College of Teachers (OCT) Educators. As part of the government’s commitment to planning for every scenario, the province is working closely with education stakeholders to develop a plan for scaling and building additional online learning programs.
Learn at Home offers all students high-quality, made-in-Ontario math and literacy resources, created by Ontario-certified educators, in both English and French. Elementary resources are designed to help young students learn at home with interactive activities that encourage participation through entertaining and stimulating digital content.
High school content was designed with a focus on STEM courses and ensures core competencies and skills are reinforced. The government is also providing access to course content for students who take the initiative to refresh and extend their learning.
