Since Montreal has been especially hard hit by the health crisis, concerns and questions about the return to the classroom have been expressed.

To help disseminate relevant information about Montreal’s back-to-school situation, Réseau réussite Montréal has produced a number of various short videos in which education and health specialists answer various questions.

These videos were produced as part of the special back-to-school edition of Hooked on School Days, which runs until September 4 with the theme “Back to school. Together. For them.” Réseau réussite Montréal is pleased to have coordinated the Montreal edition of HSD for over 10 years.

We warmly thank the experts for their generosity.

« Even though the school might look slightly different, we’re still here to help them learn. »


La rentrée selon Jennifer Ouellette, directrice de l’école primaire Montcalm

« On est toujours fébrile, on a vraiment hâte. Parce que une école vide, ce n’est pas une école. Ça prend des rires d’enfants, ça prend des cris d’enfants et ça nous manque beaucoup depuis le mois de mars. »

“I’m quite confident the health of children is not at stake when they are going back to school in September, and I’m quite sure it’s going to be a fun school entry even though it’s going to be a bit different.”
