Drop off and Pick up:

Please consider the following:

  • The Kiss & Ride on Broadlands Blvd will begin on the first day of school. Look for the adults wearing safety vests east of the driveway.  
  • The easiest way to enter the Kiss & Ride zone is from the east on Broadlands Boulevard.
  • If at all possible, please consider walking to school, parking down the street or on a side street that accesses the back field and walk your child to the school until buses are running. 
  • The bus loop and the parking lot are closed to parents at pick up and drop off times. 

 

Parking and Kiss & Ride

With the cooperation of our Community Liaison Police Officer, Broadlands has a Kiss n’ Ride in front of our school.   School staff and parent volunteers meet cars just West of the bus loop entrance, and our Safety Patrol students escort students to their playground.  This helps to keep the traffic flow moving and to reduce/eliminate the need for cars to park, either in front of the school or in the parking lot. We do want to ensure that we keep the area around our school as safe as possible for our community.  A Green Kiss & Ride sign identifies the area, which reads "STUDENT PICK-UP AND DROP-OFF AREA."

Please be mindful of where you park around the school.  The bus loop is unavailable to car traffic between 7:30 and 4:00.  Also, please be respectful of our Broadlands community, including ensuring that our neighbours are able to access their driveways at all times.


Do you have a child in Junior Kindergarten?

The Toronto District School Board guarantees an offer of placement in the Early French Immersion (not a specific school) to all on-time applicants. Families must apply online (for a child currently in Junior Kindergarten or JK age) at www.tdsb.on.ca/pars in November.  The specific dates will be posted once known. Due to the popularity of the Early Immersion program, new French Immersion sites within the TDSB continue to open, which affects program boundaries. Please visit www.tdsb.on.ca/french for more information.  You will also find a list of schools that are hosting information nights for families interested in FSL Programs.

* Please note that Broadlands begins in Senior Kindergarten. Please register at your home school for Junior Kindergarten. *


Cash Online

Our school has moved to an online system for collecting payments. To register for School Cash Online, select “Get Started Today” and complete the three registration steps.  


Broadlands Pathway

The pathway for students currently enrolled at Broadlands PS for the French Immersion program is Broadlands (SK to 5) – Windfields (6-8) – York Mills (9-12).  Although this is the planned pathway, changes do occasionally occur.


Who do I speak to when I have questions/concerns?

We want to work with our Broadlands community and families.  Attached is an outline of who to contact when those questions and concerns arise.

SAFE ARRIVAL PHONE NUMBER:
416-395-2092

The safe arrival number is available 24 hours a day.  Please call and leave a message with your child's name, the reason for the absence, and your child's teacher's name so that we are able to update our attendance and so that you won't get a call!


Schools and Parents Working Together for Our Students

This video has been created as a tool to help explain the role that parents/guardians play in supporting student achievement and well-being and emphasizes the importance of parent engagement across our system.  http://www.tdsb.on.ca/AboutUs/DirectorofEducation/VisionforLearning.aspx.
