Optional Attendance Process.

Dear Parent/Guardian:

We are sharing details and directions with you regarding how the system is continuing to support our Optional Attendance process. Whether students are engaged in face to face or virtual learning, schools are continuing to sign, process, forward and receive Optional Attendance forms electronically to prioritize the health and safety of our community and reduce potential COVID-19 exposures. 

The following process will continue to be in place for the remainder of the 2021-2022 Optional Attendance process.

  • The parent/guardian can complete the Optional Attendance form (paper or digital version ELEMENTARY or SECONDARY) and can email the completed form to current school principal.  The form may be sent as a digital form, scan, photo or screengrab. 
  • The current school principal or designate (VP, office staff etc.) will email the form(s) to the receiving school. Forwarding the Optional Attendance form from the principal’s/designate’s TDSB email address will serve as confirmation that the application is being tracked and approved by the sending school.
  • The receiving school will confirm receipt of the form(s) by way of email reply to the sending school.
  • The current school will communicate with families that the Optional Attendance Form was signed, sent and received by the receiving school. 

Please note that all current timelines are still in effect.  Forms for secondary schools must be received by 4:00 p.m. January 28, 2022, and for elementary schools by February 11, 2022.

Dear Parents/Guardians at Cummer Valley:
As you are aware, today we had a watermain break resulting in no water at the school. As a result of this emergency, classes were moved to remote learning for the day. Crews arrived quickly to undertake the required repairs, which were completed by 5:30pm.
As you know, the health and safety of our students is a top priority at Cummer Valley MS and would like to thank our TDSB Facility Services staff for responding to the situation so quickly and to our Cummer Valley staff for their care of our students and professionalism. The response and cooperation from everyone was exceptional.
The building has been inspected and is safe for school. We look forward to welcoming students back to their classrooms tomorrow.
Thank you for your patience and understanding. As always, please contact me should you have any questions or concerns.

ALERT! - School Closure, Online Learning For Students Today

Dear Parent and Guardians of Cummer Valley Middle School,

We have had an emergency water main break on Maxome Avenue, and currently there is no water in the building for drinking, washing or flushing.

As a result of this emergency, the school is closed until further updates are available in the morning.

We have been directed by the TDSB to PIVOT to VIRTUAL LEARNING  at home until further notice.

If you are at home, please do not send your children to school. Please have your children check their emails and log in to the online classroom links. Understanding this is the beginning of the school year, it may take some time to log in to the virtual classes.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work through this emergency situation.

We will be in touch with you again shortly.

In-Person/Virtual Selection Form


As shared in May, the Toronto District School Board (TDSB) will be asking all families to complete a Selection Form for In-Person or Virtual Learning for the 2021-22 school year.

Over the past several weeks, COVID-19 cases in Toronto have continued to decline, and we have seen significant progress with vaccines among adults and children aged 12-17. This is encouraging news, and we look forward to reconnecting all students to their home schools and welcoming them in person in September. 

While requests for Virtual Learning will be accommodated where necessary, we strongly encourage all students to select In-Person Learning. Based on our TDSB data about how students feel they learn best, and available data with respect to students returning to in-person learning, we feel confident that this is the best choice for students following what has been a challenging year.

Families can complete the Selection Form for In-Person or Virtual Learning online from Thursday, August 5 to Thursday, August 12

An email with a Selection Form link will be sent on Thursday, August 5. Families with two or more children will receive a separate email and link for each student. Families must complete the Selection Form using the link provided.

Those without an email address on file with the TDSB will receive a phone call to complete the Selection Form between August 10 and 12. Students will be placed in In-Person Learning if we do not receive a completed Selection Form by August 12.

Thank you for your cooperation as we work together to prepare for a smooth start to the school year.
