        Dear Elementary Parents/Guardians (In-Person Schools only),   

I would like to share some important information regarding the distribution of the Progress Report.For this reporting period, as is past practice, the Progress Reports will be distributed in hard copy to students and their families on Wednesday November 18, 2020

Toronto Public Health has been consulted on the sending of hard copies and they did not identify any concerns. As always however, staff and students are reminded of proper handwashing routines before and after distribution of materials. 

A reminder that parent/guardian-teacher interviews are available during the P. A. Day on Friday, November 20th.  There will be no classes for students.

Should you have any questions, please speak with your child’s teacher or email me at darshni.d’souza@tdsb.on.ca

Breakfast Program Information


September 24, 2020


Dear Parent/Guardian,

Fisherville Senior Public School will be providing a Breakfast Program starting on Monday September 28, 2020. The program will run between 8:30 a.m. and 8:50 a.m. every day in the classroom.

Since we have only been given partial funding for this program through the Toronto Foundation for Student Success, in order to run it from October through June inclusive, it is suggested for participating families to contribute $20.00 per term.

1 Oct- Feb  = 20.00  

2 Feb-June   =20.00

Entire year (Oct-June )=$40.00

It is very common these days for children to start their day without a nutritious meal. There are many reasons for this such as, a busy lifestyle, insufficient time and many tasks to complete in the morning. If you find it very difficult to get your children to eat breakfast, or believe they could use the extra fuel, then the Nutrition Program is the answer.

Due to allergy concerns and Toronto Public Health policies, food CANNOT BE PROVIDED TO ANY CHILD WITHOUT THE REQUIRED REGISTRATION FORM BEING COMPLETED AND SIGNED BY THE PARENT/GUARDIAN.

For further information on our program please contact the school at (416) 395-3030.

We will continue to work in partnership with you to ensure all our children receive the support they need to be successful in school.

Sincerely,

Darshni D’Souza
Principal
