Dear Parents,

As we wait in great anticipation of the first day of school, I wanted to take the time to provide you with some important health and safety updates in order to ensure a smooth start to our school year for everyone. There will be growing levels of excitement with the return to our full sports programs, clubs and field trips this fall.

Here are some guidelines and updates to our Health and Safety policies, some of which have been continued since last June:

– Face masks will remain optional for students and staff, including on student transportation. This is in alignment with the Ministry of Education and Toronto Public Health . It is important that we continue to respect the personal choices of individuals.

– We welcome parents into the building, by appointment only, during the school day. Please ensure that you check-in at reception upon arrival.

– Daily screening is recommended but there will not be a requirement to upload the results. This form can be accessed through this link on our School’s website.

Please ensure that you follow these steps as outlined by Toronto Public Heath should your child become ill with COVID symptoms – COVID 19 School Information for Parents & Caregivers

Over the next few days, you will receive further health and safety information from the respective Division Heads depending on what class and grade your child will be entering in for September 2022.

As we move forward, slowly and cautiously, there may be some possible adjustments ahead but we will continue to align our Health and Safety policies in accordance with the most recent updates from our Ministry of Education, Government of Ontario and Public Health Officials. We look forward to welcoming back your child for the first official day of School on Tuesday September 6, 2022.

Sincerely,

James Lee
Head of School
