The Toronto District School Board and Toronto Catholic District School Board are experiencing school bus delays. In particular, parents of students who use Attridge Transportation, Wheelchair Accessible Transit or Sharp Bus Lines should expect significant delays and the possibility that some buses may not be running due to an unanticipated bus driver shortage. We are working to fix this issue as soon as possible.

Visitor Policy

“Safety First” for our Students 

Mary Shadd Public School has a Visitors’ Policy to ensure the safety of our students and staff. The policy is monitored and reviewed every year and its purpose is:

  • To enhance the safety of students, staff and volunteers at school, while maintaining a welcoming environment.
  • To easily identify visitors, volunteers and parents in the school.
  • To help staff identify possible intruders in the school.
  • To provide administration with the names of people in the school in case of an emergency.


  • All visitors, including parents are requested to enter through the main doors and report to the school office upon arrival.
  • All visitors, including parents, are asked to wait at the school office or outside the school for their children. Please do not proceed to the classrooms to pick up a child, deliver items, or give your child a message.
  • Visitors are to sign-out at the office and return their visitor tag before leaving.
  • If you want to speak with a teacher, please make an appointment at the office.

Thank you for your cooperation.
