A petition asking the government to revise its plan had garnered more than 16,700 signatures by Saturday afternoon. Education Minister Jean-Francois Roberge said Aug. 6 he was working with Quebec’s public health director, Dr. Horacio Arruda, and Health Minister Christian Dube to update the province’s plan. He is expected to hold a news conference early this week to reveal details.Anxious parents and teachers say they expect Roberge to offer clear guidelines governing how schools will address COVID-19 outbreaks.

Heidi Yetman, president of the Quebec Provincial Association of Teachers, which represents 8,000 teachers at English-language school boards in the province, said her members are anxious because they feel like they can’t adequately prepare for their students’ return. Yetman said the province should make masks mandatory for students aged 12 and up, provide additional cleaning supplies and portable handwashing stations, and fund more mental health support services.

Get rid of the school buses.....and what there used for....parents get involved with thier kids......walking and talking to school, and safety awareness talks..... pay less taxes at the end of the day, and learned what thier kids doing when they're not waliking to school...

Kids all across Canada playing together, teenagers hanging out in large groups and everyone is okay. Bad Science, weak leaders and greedy industry keeping us locked down.

Hello there, I have a great suggestion that will make your child happy. Birthdays are the happiest days for children. Make a spectacular event with the decorations of the Fortnite game. 🎉🎈🎁🎂

No new normal in schools, no mask , no social distancing. Children need to be free. We will damage their sense of well being if they are told to be scared of one and other. Other media outlet not willing to let us be normal. Shame on them.

If Disney World is open schools should be open.

Go Robot.
