Director Statement Re: Tragic Death of TDSB Student

Categories: News Releases

We are grieving the tragic loss of a TDSB student as a result of a shooting at David and Mary Thomson CI this afternoon. 

On behalf of the Toronto District School Board, I want to extend our sincere condolences to the student’s family, friends and loved ones, along with the entire school community following this heartbreaking incident. 

We will be supporting the student’s family in every way possible and will be ensuring that students and staff are supported at the school in the days and weeks ahead.

An incident like this raises questions about how something like this can happen inside a school. As we continue to assist Toronto Police with their investigation in any way we can, we will also undertake our own investigation. 

I would encourage parents and guardians to contact the school should they have any questions or require additional support for their child or family.
