Elementary students are being offered a suite of educational programming on Television Ontario (TVO) including shows that teach mathematics, science and language.

"As you can imagine, developing a plan for 247,000 students while schools are closed and on an extremely tight timeline, is challenging to say the least," Malloy wrote. "At the same time, our goal is to create teaching and learning conditions that will, as best as possible given the circumstances, lead to the successful completion of the school year for all students and to support students in advancing to the next school year and to graduate." The province initially said that students would spend an additional two weeks away from the classroom during an extended March Break but "The reality is April 6 is not realistic right now," Ford said during a news conference at Queen’s Park.
