Premier François Legault announced today that winter break will not be extended for Quebec elementary school students — however, secondary school students should expect to learn online until January 11.\nEarlier this week, Legault said his government was considering extending the Quebec winter break to make "a kind of quarantine" for students after the holidays.\nWith today's announcement, that applies mainly to high schoolers. Although in-person classes for all students will end earlier than planned, replaced with distance education.\nEditor's Choice: Starbucks In Quebec Are Giving Away 2 For 1 Drinks & Here's How To Get Your Promo Code\n\n\n\n\nDecember 17\n\n\nSchools close for the winter holidays\n\n\n\n"We'll also close the schools on December 17 but students will continue to receive their education online. That's only two to four days of online teaching for primary schools," said Legault.\nIn primary schools, the calendar will start back on January 5, 6 or 7 depending on the region "as it was planned since a long time [ago]." \nIn secondary schools, where classes would normally resume around January 4, online teaching will continue until January 11. \nSpecial schools will stay open. Daycares will stay open but only for essential services workers, Legault said.
