As schools across the province begin welcoming students, the Western Quebec School Board (WQSB) is continuing to inform parents regarding the new COVID-19 prevention regulations.

According to Mike Dubeau, the Director General of the WQSB, various documents and updates were provided to parents in attempts to clarify information regarding the reopening.
