The majority of GuelphToday readers who responded to our poll about returning students to school for the rest of the year voted in favour of keeping them out.

But it wasn't by a landslide.

A total of 2,127 votes were cast in the poll, which had a 3.29 per cent margin of error.

As it turned out, the province also felt they should stay out of school for the remainder of the year.

GuelphToday uses a variety of techniques to capture data, detect and prevent fraudulent votes, detect and prevent robots and filter out non-local and duplicate votes.

The poll ran for five days last week.

Here are the results:

Q: Should students go back to in-class learning for the remainder of the school year?

No, there's no point: 1,114 (52 per cent)

Yes, it's important for them: 808 (38 per cent)

Yes, but only with increased safety measures in place: 205 (10 per cent)
