Google Translate Limitations Disclaimer

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.

Fall is here! On October 2nd, students, families and staff are encouraged to join schools across the country in celebrating International Walk to School Day (IWALK/IWHEEL), a day that celebrates all forms of active transportation including walking, cycling, scootering and/or travelling using a mobility device.

For resources including posters and event ideas, click here.

Did you know October is also International Walk to School Month? If you're feeling up to the challenge, consider celebrating active transportation all month long.

As autumn arrives, the days begin to get shorter and increasing our visibility on city streets becomes especially important. The following are some safety tips from Toronto Public Health to keep in mind before heading outside:

  • Carry identification, a cell phone and a whistle
  • Bring water
  • Wear comfortable walking shoes and bright, reflective clothing
  • Dress for the weather
  • Cross streets at traffic lights, stop signs or crosswalks-always walk facing traffic
  • Avoid using headphones and cell phones while walking
  • Tell someone where you are going
  • Check the Air Quality Health Index and UV index before you start your walk
  • Be sun safe

Show us how you're celebrating!

Share your IWALK/IWHEEL event with us by tweeting @EcoSchoolsTDSB and @TDSB using the hashtag #walktoschool or #biketoschool
