Dear Parents/Guardians and Students,
Following Monday’s storm and two days of no in-person learning at our schools, we have been closely monitoring the weather forecast, City of Toronto snow clearing operations and the clearing of snow from our own TDSB properties as we consider plans for tomorrow, Wednesday, January 19.
- While not yet complete, the City of Toronto continues to make significant progress in clearing major roads and side streets and will continue overnight.
- The vast majority of TDSB schools and sites have been plowed and thanks to the great work of our caretakers are now accessible. Plowing will continue.
- While delays are still possible, students and staff will more easily be able to travel to schools/sites given significant plowing operations underway in the GTA.
Based on this information, we have made the decision to re-open all schools to in-person learning for Wednesday, January 19.
Please note that child care programs (serving infant, toddler and preschool-aged children) can remain open to families, however families are still encouraged to connect directly with the operator to confirm they are open. Before and After-School Programs, and Extended Day Programs will also be able to open. TDSB EarlyON Child and Family Centres will continue to offer virtual-only programming at this time. All Continuing Education programs will also resume as normal.
As we return to in-person learning, please remember to carefully review and become familiar with the revised COVID-19 screening tool, including the second page which provides direction on isolation measures in a variety of scenarios based on age and vaccination status. Please complete the TDSB Health Pass or Health Screening App daily.
We look forward to welcoming students and staff back to in-person learning tomorrow.
Director of Education
