City After-School Programs Cancelled as Health Unit Orders Students to Online Learning Only

The Windsor-Essex County Medical Officer of Health has ordered all area elementary and secondary school students to transition to online/remote learning only as of Monday, December 14, and that means after-school programs operated by the City of Windsor will close as well.

The City has been offering programming, but with the closure of schools and in an attempt to do all we can to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, we are cancelling after-school programming.  Recreation staff are reaching out directly to parents to let them know. 

The City will continue to monitor the health unit’s recommendations and orders to ensure our community response to COVID-19 measures remains coordinated.

We regret the inconvenience this will cause but trust everyone understands the escalating COVID-19 situation locally and the need for action.
