School Safety Procedures

The TDSB has taken steps to ensure your child’s safety while in school. Each school has an emergency-preparedness plan that includes steps staff and students take in the event of an emergency. As part of this plan, the school conducts two annual Lock- Down drills. Today (29/10/2014) we held our Hold and Secure drill.

A school goes into Hold and Secure in response to a threat in the general vicinity but not on or near the school property. All students remain inside and the doors to the school are locked. No one is permitted to enter the school. Students remain in their classrooms with the windows and blinds closed and continue with their learning. In the event that a Lockdown lasts past the end of the school day, parents will be informed of the location and time to pick up students by the school’s emergency plan or local media.

Staff Appreciation Luncheon 2012-13

On Thursday, May 9, 2013 the Regent Heights parent community provided a Staff Appreciation Luncheon.  The food was incredible and we appreciate your efforts.  We want you to know how much we value our partnership with you.  Thank you to all of our parents.  Many contributed to the luncheon and could not attend - we thank you too!




Parents, for the safety of our students, please do not drive into the staff parking lot to drop off your children. This year we have 51 staff and we will need to strictly enforce that the parking lots are for staff only! In addition, be sure to drop children off on the north side of Nancy Ave. It is unsafe to have children crossing Nancy, unless it is at the traffic lights. Many pedestrians have been hit by cars lately and we are concerned for the safety of our students. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation!

Mrs. Mitchell’s Three Fruit Muffins Recipe

You loved them in your morning snack; now you can make them at home! 

  • 1 1/2 cups fruit – a combination of banana, pear, and apple (or applesauce)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup white flour
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  1. Mash the banana. Cut the apples and pears in very small pieces. (Or, freeze the pears, and when you thaw them they will be easy to mash.)
  2. Combine flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Stir.
  3. Add fruit, egg, sugar, and oil. Mix well.
  4. Makes 12 large muffins or 24 mini muffins. Grease your muffin pans. Divide batter into pans.
  5. Heat oven to 375F. Bake for 20 minutes (large muffins) or 15 minutes (mini muffins). Enjoy!

Try experimenting with different fruits and veggies such as frozen berries, peaches, grated carrots, or chopped green tomatoes!

If you like, add half a cup of extra goodies to the batter. Try walnuts, sliced almonds, raisins, dried cranberries, sunflower seeds, or coconut.

If you like, try adding some tasty spices! Try 1/2 a teaspoon of cinnamon, ginger, or garam masala!

Regent Heights Believes

Our social focus starting in 2012 is to stamp out bullying by raising awareness about what is NOT acceptable in our community. The students are being taught the phrase/response, "Not in our community!"

Each day in October and into November, student announcers share other students' thoughts about what is not acceptable in our community. To put a positive spin on this, classes have also posted messages around the school that begin with "Regent Heights believes..."

Below are some photos of examples of some of the work the students have done:
