School stories follow the rentrée

Lots of school-based stories Friday morning following the rentrée: a Grade 7 class was sent home from a private school on the South Shore because of a parent with Covid and several teachers have been diagnosed in the Montreal area.

In one high school, students are in class but the teacher is on a screen because she’s pregnant and therefore at risk.

The education minister says students are not to do activities with kids from other classes, for the time being. They must stay in their bubbles. (Does he remember what school was actually like?)

CEGEPs are seeing increased enrolment although mostly in Montreal and Quebec City; regional schools aren’t seeing the same growth, and there are fewer international students signed up.

I can see there will be an ongoing drama of school stories so I’ll be condensing them into one post per day for now, with updates.
