Toronto District School Board

The City of Toronto has advised that recent restrictions regarding public access to Toronto Island Park have been revised to include the Island Public School (IPS) and Natural Science School (NSS). While the school itself is dry, the roadways to and from the ferry docks have been affected by rising water levels. Student and staff safety is our top priority. As a result, IPS will be relocating to Nelson Mandela Park PS effective May 18 and for the duration of the school year. IPS families will receive detailed information from the school. Trips for other schools to the NSS will be cancelled for the balance of the school year. We apologize for any inconvenience.
