Tens of thousands of students are returning to class amid the COVID-19 pandemic, while a large percentage are staying home and learning online. It's a September unlike any other.

Whether you're an education worker, parent or student, CBC Toronto wants your help covering this developing story.

What are your concerns? What are the conditions like at your school? What steps are you taking to stay safe? Fill out the form in this story to let us know what you're seeing — we will monitor the responses and follow up where we can, holding those in power to account.

The Greater Toronto Area has tens of thousands of students studying at multiple boards.

We are especially interested to hear from people living in areas that have been hardest hit by COVID-19, for example parts of Etobicoke, Scarborough and Peel region, in particular Brampton. In Toronto, some boards and trustees have suggested supports will be bolstered in those areas — is that happening?

This is a story that's changing every day. Share your concerns and help us keep an eye on what's important when it comes to COVID-19 and classrooms this fall.
