Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board is planning for the majority of students to return to in-person learning with enhanced safety precautions in place in September 2021. However, given ongoing uncertainly regarding future outcomes in the face of COVID-19, we will continue to offer a virtual school as part of our pandemic response in the 2021-2022 school year. HPEDSB will offer a Kindergarten to Grade 10 Virtual School option, should families decide it fits their child/ren’s style of learning and meets the needs of their family. Programming for Grade 11 and 12 students will be provided through their home secondary school.
