Director Letter to Grade 12 Students

Monday, May 11, 2020
Categories: Happenings @ TDSB

Dear Grade 12 Students,

We are thinking of you all, and especially those of you who are graduating this year.

I am sure you have been looking forward to so many events in May and June, like prom, graduation and end-of-year trips. We had hoped these events would be able to continue and I know it is hard news to hear that they have been cancelled or postponed. Being away from your friends and school right now is difficult and missing out on these events which help mark the end of high school for you, only adds to that.

Please try to stay connected to your family, friends and school staff. These relationships — even virtually — are still important and a call or text to someone you care about can feel good. Our mental health and well-being resources offer lots of great ideas and tips for managing your feelings and well-being.

I know you may have questions about what happens next. Please reach out to your school about any events being rescheduled or questions about other items, including marks. We are here to support you in any way we can. 

This year will surely be one none of us forgets, but know that brighter days are ahead. I wish you well as you move forward in your life’s next chapter.
