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
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.
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.
Todays is #DressPurpleDay in Ontario. Let’s show our support for Children’s Aid Societies and raise awareness for Ontario’s children and youth by wearing purple today.
No matter what challenges you are facing, I want you to know that help is available.
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.
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.”
