Dear Parents, Guardians & Caregivers,
Welcome to the 2022-23 school year! I hope that you and your family had a wonderful summer.
As the elected public school board trustee for Ward 9: Davenport & Spadina-Fort York, my role is to advocate for you and your child, and to represent the needs of all students and families in the Toronto District School Board.
As we prepare to welcome students and staff to a more normal school year, the TDSB is doing everything possible to ensure the health and safety of all school community members, while also providing the best possible academic experience and supporting student’s well-being and mental health. With respect to public health matters, the TDSB continues to take its direction from Toronto Public Health and the provincial government and seeks to provide students and families with the best information in a timely manner.
We know that returning to school can be an exciting and overwhelming time – for both students and parents/guardians. To help you and your child have a great year, please visit www.tdsb.on.ca for information on the school year calendar, transportation, and getting involved, as well as resources for homework and so much more. The Toronto District School Board is also here to support you and your family’s mental health and well-being needs. For a list of tools and resources, including those tailored for students and parents/guardians, please visit https://www.tdsb.on.ca/Mental-Health-Well-Being.
This will be my last letter to you as your Trustee as I will not be seeking re-election this fall. Please accept my heartfelt gratitude for the honour of representing you and your families here in Ward 9 since 2018. I am so proud of how our communities have cared for each other during some of the most challenging times in the history of our School Board and City. Thank you for your trust and your partnership. Most of all, thank you in advance for continuing to engage in public education in support of all of our children and youth.
This fall, please continue to reach out and connect with me if you have any questions or concerns. The best way to reach me is to email email@example.com or call Trustee Services at 416-395-8787, or follow me on Twitter @StephMDonaldson.
In general, I always recommend subscribing to the TDSB Update at www.tdsb.on.ca/TDSBupdate and following the TDSB on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. As always, you will also continue to receive important information and updates from your school and the board via email.
Hope you and yours stay safe and well and all the very best for a great return to school!
With sincere gratitude and always in community,
Trustee, Ward 9, Davenport and Spadina - Fort York
