Parents are making up their minds about the return to school.

"We're very glad that students -- by and large -- will be coming back. It looks like more than 90 per cent of parents have selected that option for their children," says Derek Haime at the Kenora Catholic District School Board, as he talked about their survey results.

"We want to assure parents we have taken every recommendation from the Northwestern Health Unit, and we use those on an overlapping basis to ensure the greatest safety possible, while providing the best education that's possible in that circumstance," Haime added.

The school board released their return to class plan last week. Trustees are also looking at a staggered start for staff and students at St. Thomas Aquinas.

The Keewatin-Patricia District School Board has released their staggered start. This means different grades will re-enter on different days, with different timetables for high school, intermediate and elementary grades.

Students have been out of the classroom since the March Break.
