LILLEY: Ford government to delay March break
Seems like a pretty common-sense idea to me: the Ford government is getting set to push back March break until later in the year over concerns about COVID-19 and specifically, the U.K. variant. An announcement is set for later this week when Education Minister Stephen Lecce will announce the details. There are three options being discussed, including moving the spring break week to April, delaying it until May, or simply ending the school year five days earlier in June. The decision is being complicated by opposition from teacher unions that want the break to go ahead as scheduled.
