In order to minimize the number of people in and around the school, any parent/caregiver wishing to set up an appointment will need to request one by e-mailing/calling the school in advance. Please note that parents/caregivers will not be able to congregate in the yard at any time including drop-off and dismissal OR DURING THE SCHOOL DAY to ensure optimal safety and physical distancing. Each class will be provided with a drop-off/pick up location when we have our plan in place and parents will be expected to bring their children to those locations in the AM and pick them up from the same location at the end of the day. There will likely be 4 or 5 separate entrances/exits for classes to minimize traffic inside the building.

During the school day ALL entrances will be locked. All TDSB Staff including Trades , Occasional Teachers and Lunch Supervisors will need to sign in at out for contact tracing purposes at a single entry point. Should a parent/caregiver be required to come to the school for an emergency, they will be expected to do the same.

At this stage there will be no volunteers permitted in the school.
