Update: Young Canada To Proceed As Normal - Staff Allowed To Supervise Activities

All field trips connected to Young Canada Day will proceed as planned.

The Grand Erie District School Board said after hearing concerns from students and their families they have decided to allow all field trips connected to this day to continue and allow staff supervision for the on-field activities.

The following is an excerpt from the press release:

“We’ve listened – to both our students and our families,” said Brenda Blancher, Director of Education. “We understand how important Young Canada Day is for our students and what a tradition it is for the community. As a result, we’re making an exception in this case so that all field trips to Young Canada Day can proceed and our students can fully participate. This includes decorations for the grandstands that students have spent weeks making and all of the on-field activities that they have been practicing for.”

Tickets are available at all Roulston’s, online at norfolkcountyfair.com or the Fair office, 172 South Drive, Simcoe
