During Friday afternoon’s COVID-19 update, Premier Stephen McNeil said at home learning in Nova Scotia will continue until June 5, when the school year will end.
McNeil thanked parents, caregivers, and teachers and the Nova Scotia Teacher’s union for their support in this unprecedented time of delivering education. McNeil said another at home workbook is on its way, which means the kitchen table will remain a classroom for a little bit longer. Teachers will continue to work until the end of June to finalize assessments and report cards.
McNeil said the current goal for daycare operators is to have them reopen on June 8, though a final decision will come closer to that date. Education minister Zach Churchill and his team will work with daycare operators during the transition.
