Isn't it weird when you tweet something in August and then it only appears on Twitter 2 months later? #FireLecce
Joined by Dr. Cohn, @SickKidsNews President, Ontario is elevating our protocol to support #SaferSchools:   ✔ PCR take-home tests for ALL schools ✔ New "Test-to-Stay" screening ✔ Stricter testing on unvaxed staff   We're taking nothing for granted to ensure schools remain safe.

🧵The #onted Modified Semester: Students take 4 classes over the course of a semester. Modified in that rather than 4 classes each day, Ss take their first 2 classes each day for a week, and then take their next 2 classes on the following week 1/

This means that each "class" is really twice as long as a regular class. It means that every other week students are not learning in two of their classes 2/

Teachers are asked not to assign work on their class "off week". This makes total sense for student workload and would not at all helpful for student mental health and wellbeing. 3/

From a learning perspective this system is total shit. Modified semester = Cramming Exactly what we *know* doesn't work best for learning. Trying to learn at *twice the pace* and then putting it on the shelf for a week does not support deep learning. 4/ #onted

#onted unions (@osstf @OECTAProv) need to push hard to ensure that we return to a regular semester system and that this is not normalized. 5/

#onted Trustees need to have conversations with teachers and students to understand the issue and to use their position to support a return to regular semesters. 6/

And of course any one who is in #onted high schools this year know that the justification for the modified semester (cohorts) is total crap with extra-curriculars running and the lunchtime fiasco. 7/7

Thank goodness Canada took pennies out of circulation before the Pfizer vaccine is authorized for 5-11 year olds.

OK. Are you trolling us now with your "productive discussions" Minister? Please say you are so that we at least know that you don't take yourself too seriously.
Productive discussion on school safety, staff retention, & quality learning with Ontario’s Principals. Thank you @OPCouncil, @CPCOofficial & @adfo for the hard work & dedication of Principals & VPs across Ontario. Together, we are supporting #SaferSchools & learning recovery.

The article in the @LFPress in which 3 terminated @LHSCCanada employees is bordering on anti-vax misinformation. Citing VAERS without proper context of what info it does and does not provide is highly irresponsible. #ldnont #COVID19on

1. Remember this moment? When London's pride + joy, Jessie Fleming scored late in the semi-finals against the US at the Olympics? It was a moment that would eventually lead the team to the gold medal. This is a story of how Jessie is a class act both on + off the field.

Hold up here. There is more to a city than just business. @Mike_Bloxam works for the London Food Bank and serves on the boards of the ACO & ReForest London. In a city were too many are living in poverty & a climate emergency was declared, what about persons who speaks to these?
Coun. Morgan arges in favour of appointing @fyfemillar in Ward 13. Points out that JFM was out talking to businesses struggling with fallout from covid and other challenges last week. “He is a strong advocate for downtown. He’s out there doing the job now.” #ldnont

Business reports always use the term "X company beat analysts expectations" Maybe this should be rephrased to "the analysts were wrong."
