Message from Trustee Yalini Rajakulasingam

Dear Parents, Guardians, and Students,

I hope you and your loved ones are keeping safe. I want to first thank our students and their families for their cooperation, resilience, and patience as we prepared to return to school after months of school closures. As we navigate through all the uncertainty, I want to also thank our principals, vice-principals, office staff, teachers, support staff, and caretaking staff who have been working endlessly to ensure a safe return for our students.

This has been the most challenging start to a new school year. 42% of students in our ward are attending school in person, while 51% of students in our ward are attending virtual school. As a result, many of our students were impacted by the complexities of virtual school. Throughout the past weeks, we have been working with students and their families to connect them to their teachers and support their transition back to school. As we prepare for the months ahead, please continue to stay connected to your principals, as we do anticipate more changes to take place. Our TDSB website is also a great resource to learn about the latest changes. As always, if you have any questions, concerns, or suggestions, please feel free to call or email me. 

As the weather gets colder, please continue to wear a mask, practice social distancing, and wash your hands regularly.
