Ensure Your Child is Vaccinated Against Measles

Toronto Public Health is investigating a measles outbreak in the City of Toronto. Vaccination is the best defense against measles infection; and two doses of measles-containing vaccine (MMR or MMRV) are required for full protection.

Most Toronto schools have high vaccination rates. However, if a measles exposure occurs in a school, students with incomplete vaccination, or an exemption from receiving the vaccine, will not be allowed to attend school until the outbreak is over.

If you are unsure of your child's immunization status, please check your child's yellow immunization card, or speak with your health care provider. Once children are completely vaccinated they can return to school.

If your child is in kindergarten, please make sure they received their 4-to-6 year old booster. Parents with children who have completed their MMR/MMRV immunization (two doses), please ensure you have updated your child's record with Toronto Public Health. If you have not updated your child's record with Toronto Public Health, your child will be considered as having incomplete vaccination. To make reporting easier and faster, we offer online reporting at: or by fax at 416-338-2487.

If you have travel plans, please be aware that the United States is experiencing a multi-state measles outbreak, linked to Disneyland in California. Before you travel, make sure you and your children are protected. Those born in 1970 or later require two doses of measles-containing vaccine.

Attendance, Lates and Signing Out

Being in class every day, on-time and ready to learn is essential for all students.
If a student is going to be away from school please follow the procedures outlined in this letter.

When a student is more than 15 minutes late for school, they must sign-in at the Attendance Office. If they are late because of an appointment, or similar situation, it is best if they arrive at school with a note indicating why they are late.

If a student needs to leave before the end of the school day, we must have contact with a legal guardian before they can leave. The best way for them to do this is to have a note from home when they come to sign-out. Where this is not possible, we will need to contact a guardian before they are able to leave which may cause delays.

Many of our students attend Jummah Prayer on Fridays. In order to accommodate this, we have a letter for families to sign giving permission for students to sign-out weekly. If this applies to your, please complete the form available below. Mosque Permission Form Sept 2014.doc
