The electronic translation service on the Toronto District School Board website is hosted by Google Translate, a third party service. The TDSB does not guarantee or warrant the reliability, accuracy or completeness of any translated information.

The quality of the translation will vary in some of the languages offered by Google. Google Translate is a free service and currently offers translation in over 100 languages, but does not capture all languages or dialects.

The basic translation goal is to capture the general intention of the original English material. Before you act on translated information, we encourage you to confirm any facts that are important to you or may affect any decisions you make.

The Toronto District School Board is committed to equity and community engagement, and by providing this tool, we are making our information more accessible to families whose first language is not English.

Staff Mental Health and Well-Being Resources

Coping Wellness promoWe recognize this is a very challenging and uncertain time as our community comes together to respond to the global pandemic of COVID-19. For many of us, that means staying home and practicing social distancing in an effort to flatten the curve. The stark change from our everyday busy and social lives can be disorienting and this new reality may feel overwhelming. Supporting our mental health and well-being during this time is critical.

Self-Care

Self Care promoTaking care of yourself is an important part of supporting well-being. As we continue to live with the ongoing uncertainty of the pandemic, it is important to find ways to nurture and take care of yourself. Sometimes we feel guilty for taking the time to care for/ focus on ourselves. This is a life skill that is helpful for everyone, regardless of age. Taking care of yourself (self-care) can look different for everyone. But in doing so you can improve your energy, find joy, and refocus on what really matters to you. Here are some ideas for you:

  • Find moments of stillness and quiet in your day
  • Move your body
  • Go outside/be in nature
  • Rest when you can and prioritize regular sleep
  • Reflect on what works for you
  • Give yourself permission to focus on your own needs and set boundaries on obligations
  • Find pleasure in things that you like to do
  • Explore new ways to relax and unwind
  • Eat and hydrate when you can to fuel your body and mind
  • Find some time during the day to connect with friends and family
