Nut-Free Zone and Food Allergies

We want to remind all our families to please ensure that they are sending snacks/food items that are made in a peanut & tree nut-free facility. This will help reduce the risk of a student having an anaphylactic reaction to a serious nut allergen. Please take a moment to talk with your child about the importance of NOT sharing any snacks/food items with others as this can pose a risk to students with serious allergies.

All Weather Recess

Here at Jackman students enjoy outdoor recess for all weather. Please help your child to be prepared for all seasons of fun and play in our outdoor learning environment! It is a good idea to send your child with an extra pair of clothes to change into should they get wet from outdoor play and recesses. Moving forward, our students will only be kept indoors for recesses/lunch during extreme weather conditions (i.e., heavy rain, lightning in area, heavy winds, extreme cold). As per the TDSB Weather Guidelines Policy, when temperature and wind chill measure -28C or lower, students will be kept indoors. Recesses may be shortened if the temperature and wind chill readings register between -28C and -20C.
