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.

Google Translate Frequently Asked Questions

On Wednesday, February 6th, 2019 – Let’s get more kids walking and wheeling to school!

Bundle up, walk and roll to school, and enjoy the winter season! On February 6th, join schools across the country in celebrating Winter Walk Day. Visit the Ontario Active School Travel website for resources including posters and event ideas.

Anytime you head outside, it's important to dress for the weather. Here are some great winter weather dressing tips from Green Communities Canada:

  • Keep hands and head covered to prevent heat loss
  • Wear warm, waterproof boots
  • Wear a warm coat that deflects the wind
  • Woolen clothing helps to retain heat
  • On really cold days, wear a scarf over your face and mouth
  • If possible, change wet clothes at school
  • Wear clothing or carry knapsacks with reflective material - it's important to be seen
  • Below -25 degrees Celsius is considered too cold for walking, so move your walk indoors or select another day

In winter conditions, use extra precaution and be mindful of how ice and snow may impact your travel.

Show us how you're celebrating!
