Dear Parents/ Guardians:

Today we learned that Ontario schools will remain closed for the remainder of this school year.

School Closure Announcement

The Government of Ontario has announced that schools will remain closed for the remainder of this current school year. We will provide additional information as it becomes available. Please visit for all the most up-to-date information. The official government announcement is available here: 


We know that with this announcement there are many questions regarding Grade 8 Graduation, process for picking up student’s belongings, process for returning library books and textbooks, June Report Cards, etc.  Please know that WCDSB continues to work with the Ministry of Education as well as  Waterloo Public Health, and as we receive recommendations for year-end procedures, the staff of St. Matthew’s will work to put the plans in place and will keep you informed via Newswire.  In the meantime, distance learning will continue, and we thank all of you for your support in helping your children continue learning during this time and until the end of June.
