On May 19, the Premier’s Office announced that all publicly funded schools in Ontario will remain closed for the duration of the 2019-2020 school year, in response to COVID-19. As such, Simcoe County District School Board (SCDSB) schools and adult learning centres will not reopen on May 31, 2020. The decision to extend the school closure period for the remainder of the school year is based on advice from Ontario's Chief Medical Officer of Health in order to protect the health and safety of students, families and staff. 

The following programs/meetings will not run or are closed:
  • Permits (Community Use of Schools)
  • All EarlyON and Child Care Centres
  • Adult and continuing education
  • Dual Credit and Cooperative education programs

Plan for pick up of Student Items June 2020http://gut.scdsb.on.ca/about-us/news/school-news/48Plan for pick up of Student Items June 2020<p>​</p><p>Dear Guthrie Families,</p><p>We have been working to ensure<strong> </strong>that students and families will have an opportunity to collect personal belongings left behind when the Ontario government ordered schools to be closed as of March 13<sup>th</sup>. I want to thank all of our families for your continued patience and understanding. Staff have been in our school this week to sort and package student belongings.  We have received guidelines and have developed a plan to strictly control access and maintain proper hygiene and social distancing to reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19.</p><p>On <span style="text-decoration:underline;"><strong> Monday June 8</strong></span><span style="text-decoration:underline;"><strong><sup>th</sup></strong></span><span style="text-decoration:underline;"><strong> </strong></span> and <span style="text-decoration:underline;"><strong>Tuesday June 9</strong></span><span style="text-decoration:underline;"><strong><sup>th</sup></strong></span><span style="text-decoration:underline;"><strong> </strong></span> parents will have the opportunity to pick up student belongings through curbside pickup. Parents are asked to drop off any loaned items such as classroom books and library books.  A bin will be placed outside for safe return.</p><p>We will follow a similar process to the one we use each year for the Oro Fair in order to help avoid any congestion. Parents are asked to arrive during the designated timeframe based on your child's last name (see schedule below).   Tables will be at the front of the school with student belongings bagged, labelled by name and organized by class. Any items in classrooms where staff are unable to identify the owner will be placed on tables arranged by class in front of the portables. Please note that only one adult from each family should come to the school for pick up. Please remember to always respect social distancing, wear a mask and gloves if you wish to, and be patient. </p><p>For safety reasons, staff are not permitted to meet with parents at the pick up tables, in the parking lot etc. or to hand deliver additional materials – please don't ask them to do so. Some of our staff members will be here to monitor the tables and answer questions. Medications and epi pens will be placed into a bag with your child's belongings.</p><p><strong>In the event of rain we will postpone the pick up to the following day. </strong></p><table width="100%" class="ms-rteTable-default" cellspacing="0"><tbody><tr><td class="ms-rteTable-default" style="width:50%;">Monday June 8<sup>th</sup> 2pm - 3pm</td><td class="ms-rteTable-default" style="width:50%;">A – B</td></tr><tr><td class="ms-rteTable-default">Monday June 8<sup>th</sup> 3:30pm – 4:30pm</td><td class="ms-rteTable-default">C– D</td></tr><tr><td class="ms-rteTable-default">Monday June 8<sup>th</sup>  5pm – 6pm</td><td class="ms-rteTable-default">E – H</td></tr><tr><td class="ms-rteTable-default"><img src="file:///C:/Users/KLOFFE~1/AppData/Local/Temp/msohtmlclip1/01/clip_image002.gif" alt="" style="margin:5px;width:578px;" /></td><td class="ms-rteTable-default"> </td></tr><tr><td class="ms-rteTable-default">Tuesday June 9<sup>th</sup> 10am – 11am</td><td class="ms-rteTable-default">I– L</td></tr><tr><td class="ms-rteTable-default">Tuesday June 9<sup>th</sup>  11:30 am -12:30pm</td><td class="ms-rteTable-default">M - O </td></tr><tr><td class="ms-rteTable-default">Tuesday June 9<sup>th</sup>  1pm – 2pm</td><td class="ms-rteTable-default">P - R</td></tr><tr><td class="ms-rteTable-default">Tuesday June 9<sup>th</sup> 2:30pm – 3:30pm</td><td class="ms-rteTable-default">S - T</td></tr><tr><td class="ms-rteTable-default">Tuesday June 9<sup>th</sup>  4pm – 5pm</td><td class="ms-rteTable-default">U -  Z</td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p><p>Additional Important Information</p><ul style="list-style-type:disc;"><li>Parents and students will not enter the school building.</li><li>Curbside pick-up will be organized by class following the schedule.</li><li>Physical distancing and safe hygiene practices will be in place.</li><li>During pickup hours, staff will direct parents to help ensure physical distancing and the safe flow of traffic.</li><li>A separate date will be set for the collection of electronic equipment such as Chromebooks </li><li>No outdoor supervision will be provided during pickup hours and school playgrounds remain closed.</li></ul><p>If you have any additional questions, please email Mrs. Lund blund@scdsb.on.ca or Mrs. Loffelman kloffelman@scdsb.on.ca as they will be able to assist you.</p>
