After delivering a message to kids about wearing masks, a Toronto school teacher has been placed on home assignment.

The Toronto District School Board (TDSB) said in a statement that the instructor sent a message that “did not represent the direction” supplied by the school board or the province.

As Ontario’s sixth wave continues, the board released a letter to students and family urging them to wear masks inside to help minimise the spread of COVID-19.

The TDSB stated that whether or not to wear a mask is a “personal decision” for pupils.

TDSB requested an extension to the mandate after Ontario declared in March that it would no longer require masks in classrooms. The province said no.
The contents of the teacher’s message to kids were not revealed by TDSB. According to TDSB, “as a result of this message, the staff member has been placed on home assignment until the results of an inquiry.”

The probe, which has only recently began, has no set end date.
