Back to school - September 9, 2021


2021-2022 school year



Mask Guidelines

Staff are required to wear Level 1 or 2 medical masks at all times when indoors, and outdoors when unable to maintain a physical distance of two metres. Level 1 and 2 medical masks provide low to moderate barrier protection from aerosols, sprays and fluids, and are appropriate for general use.

School visitors, including parents/guardians, are required to wear a mask/face covering when indoors and outdoors on school property, such as during pick-up and drop-off.

Students must wear non-medical masks or face coverings while in school.

Masks Not Approved for Use:face mask Some commercially available masks have exhalation (breathable) valves or openings that make the mask more breathable for the person wearing it. However, these masks also allow infectious respiratory droplets to spread outside the mask. Masks with exhalation valves are therefore not be used because they do not protect others from COVID-19 and do not limit the spread of the virus.



Covid-19 Self-Assessment

Parents/guardians are responsible for screening their children for COVID-19 symptoms daily and keeping them home if they are symptomatic or feeling unwell.

We ask that families download the Health Screening App and follow these steps to conduct the self-assessment:

To use the app, please note:

  • Parents/guardians are to use their child’s student account information to login to the Health Screening App.
  • If you don’t know your child's student account information, please contact IT Services Support via Student Password / Device Help.
  • If you don’t know your child’s student account information or cannot access it, please feel free to use the Health Screening Paper Pass.
  • For a step-by-step guide, please refer to How to Use the Health Screening App.

For students in grades 4-8, we will be asking for the TDSB Paper Health Pass daily:

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.
