Food for Kids Program

We know that the closure of schools has been difficult for many families, especially those who rely on school-based Student Nutrition Programs. The TDSB and the Toronto Foundation for Student Success have teamed up to provide families at your school with $50 grocery store food cards (one per TDSB student). If your family would benefit from this card, please complete the registration form online.

Quad 1 2020 COVID-19 Update

As we navigate returning to school, the health and safety of all students and staff is our top priority. The Provincial Government recently released a back -to-school plan for September 2020 which includes directives for the organization of schools, with the focus on maintaining the health and safety of all students and staff.

At present, stakeholders are reviewing the government’s recommendations. Although we anticipate continuing with our quadmester model, there is a possibility that our course schedule and timetables will need to be adjusted to meet the Province’s recommendations . Both in-class and online learning options will be available. There is NO need to re-submit course selection at this time as we do NOT have any additional information yet.

CALC is still accepting new students. Assessments for new students will be scheduled beginning in the third week of August.

Please keep checking our website as well as the CALC My School Day App for the most recent updates.

We look forward to you being a part of the CALC community!
