Important Information and Resources: COVID-19
Based on advice and recommendations from medical health authorities, the Ontario government has indicated that all public schools will be closed until the end of June.
MENTAL HEALTH SUPPORTS
Our Professional Services staff have expanded the collection of resources and tips we have available online to support student, staff and parents’ mental health and well-being. Specifically, our team has developed a series of Everyday Mental Health Activities, as well as toolboxes of activities specifically for kids, teens and parents. Together, we will continue to do all that we can to support the positive mental health of our students, families and staff in these troubling times. Please click here to access.
Ongoing Learning Resources for Parents and Students
DISTANCE LEARNING - began the week of April 6. Please click here for our Distance Learning page and supports
As a first step to ensure the continued learning of your children, the government launched an online portal to provide access to a wide variety of educational resources, for all students from Kindergarten through to Grade 12.
Support for Families
While schools and child care centres are closed, parents can apply for direct funding to offset costs, while they practice self-isolation and physical distancing. Please note KPR does not expect or require parents to purchase learning resources at this time.
Eligible parents will receive a one-time per child payment of:
- $200 for children aged 0 to 12
- $250 for children or youth aged 0 to 21 with special needs
We know that not all KPR students and families have access to WiFi. As we work to support our communities in these challenging days, we have designated all our schools as public WiFi hotspots. Members of the public may access the internet at no charge from outside our buildings. In using this resource, we encourage everyone to follow public health directives and maintain physical distancing. Please click here to see the instructions for accessing the WiFi.
