Toronto Public Health Immunization Update

 

Toronto Public Health has recently sent out the second wave of letters directly to families requesting  updated immunization information be filed for their child.  Families that do not provide up to date immunization information to Toronto Public Health risk having their child being suspended from school as of February 12, 2020 until updated information is received.  Please report your child’s immunization directly to Toronto Public Health online at Toronto.ca/student vaccines as soon as possible to be removed from the immunization suspension list.  If you have already submitted updated information and your child’s name remains on the list, please contact Toronto Public Health directly at 416-392-1250 to inquire directly as Public Health will only release confidential updates to families and not our school personnel.  Please contact the school if you have any questions.”

Jarvis prides itself on this reputation of academic excellence and aims to prepare the next generation of community and world leaders.

Jarvis offers a wide range of courses, programs, and extra-curricular activities. As a Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (S.T.E.M.) school, the students in our classrooms are engaged in project-based learning. An inquiry method of teaching and learning is utilized as students partake in independent and collaborative studies within the S.T.E.M. fields.
