CHARLOTTETOWN — The Prince Edward Island government is opening at least eight schools to provide help for some students and respite support for their parents.

Education Minister Brad Trivers says beginning May 11 at the latest, designated schools will reopen to students who now receive individualized support from student services teams.

Those are students who are supported by educational assistants and youth service workers.

Trivers says the plan will provide the students with the structure and individualized support they need.

The minister says starting June 15, high school teachers will meet by appointment with students to ensure they are getting the prerequisite courses they need for post-secondary education.

He says graduation and end-of-year activities will be held the week of June 22, and they are looking for innovative ways they can be done in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.
