Masking at TDSB

Since the beginning of the pandemic, the TDSB has prioritized the health and safety of both staff and students. While the TDSB takes its direction from the province, which does not require masks, given the increase in COVID-19 cases and the high number of absences, we as a system, are asking that all staff and students please wear a well-fitting mask when indoors in schools to limit the spread of COVID-19 and help minimize disruption from COVID-related absences. To be clear, this remains a personal decision.

We also want to remind you that masks are required in the following circumstances:

  • For days 6-10 after a self-isolation period of five days after a COVD-19 diagnosis. Learn more.
  • If you are identified as a close contact of someone with COVID-19. Learn more.
  • In public spaces, including schools and childcares, for the first 14 days following travel outside of Canada. Learn more.

And, of course, please continue to complete the daily screening before your child comes into a TDSB building and keep them home if they have not passed the screening.

Forest Hill Jr. & Sr. Public School (JK-8) is a community school located in the Forest Hill neighbourhood which, prior to 1967, was part of the old Forest Hill Village. The school consists of two separate buildings, one of which was built in 1923, the other in 1938. Forest Hill has the unique features of period architecture, a 470-seat auditorium with a proper stage, and spacious grounds. The grounds include two separate baseball diamonds, soccer fields and a full running track.

Forest Hill also houses Dunloe Children's Centre. Over one hundred children attend the Centre. Before and after school care is also available subject to numbers and space. Many in-district families with children previously in parochial and private schools have enrolled their children in our school for 2016-2017. Forest Hill Public School is committed to providing a learning environment that prepares students for successful living in an increasingly pluralistic and changing world. We balance our emphases on academics, athletics, arts, and the environment as well as enriched opportunities for the exercise of responsible citizenship. This broad co-curriculum gives depth and variety to student life.
