Dear Families,

The health and well-being of our students and staff remains a top priority for Orillia Central Preschool.

“The Premier’s Office has announced that it will close all publicly funded schools in Ontario from March 14 to April 5, 2020, in response to COVID-19. As a result, all SCDSB and SMCDSB schools will be closed and childcare programs, provided by independent childcare operators, will not be operating. This includes: March Break programs, childcare centres and Before and After School Programs.”

All Orillia Central Preschool Programs will be CLOSED effective 6:00pm today and will resume on Monday April 6, 2020 at 6:30am.

We thank you for your understanding and co-operation in this matter.


MaryAnn McLennan, RECE
Executive Director
