COVID-19 Info and Updates

UPDATE - May 19

In response to the emergence of COVID-19, the Government of Ontario has issued an order mandating the closure of all publicly funded schools in Ontario. As a result all elementary and secondary schools, as well as Board office locations at the Simcoe Muskoka Catholic District School Board are currently closed for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year.

Effective March 24, all school playgrounds are closed to prevent the spread of COVID-19.


With extensive media coverage and information spreading rapidly on social media, we want to assure parents and guardians that the health and safety of our students and staff is always our top priority. We work closely with our health partners including the Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit and the Ministry of Health in dealing with health-related issues such as Coronavirus.


The Ministry of Health and the Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit provide regular updates and resources regarding coronavirus in Ontario and abroad. We encourage you to review the resources below.
