Hello Parent/Guardians and Community Members,
Welcome to the 2021-22 school year! I hope that you and your family had a safe and enjoyable summer.
As the elected public school board trustee for your community, my role is to advocate for you and your child, and to represent the needs of all students and parents/guardians in the Toronto District School Board.
As we prepare to return 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 academic experience possible for students, supporting mental health and well-being and considering the needs of families and staff. We will continue to take our direction from Toronto Public Health and the Ministry of Education and provide updates in a timely manner.
For the most up to date information on learning models, mental health and well-being resources, health and safety measures, our pandemic recovery plan and so much more, please refer to www.tdsb.on.ca/schoolyear-2021-22. This webpage will continue to be updated with relevant information and resources to help support you and your family. I know that there have been many questions about school ventilation. More information can be found here: https://www.tdsb.on.ca/School-Year-2021-22/Health-and-Safety/Ventilation. School specific question should be addressed to your school principal.
I want to thank you in advance for your understanding, patience and partnership as we work together to welcome both students and staff back to school, and overcome any challenges that may arise due to the ongoing pandemic.
