Covid -19 Information and Support

The health, safety and well-being of staff and students is our top priority. One of the most important things we can do to slow the spread of COVID-19 in our schools, is for students and their families to screen themselves daily for any symptoms of COVID-19 using the TDSB Student Health Pass or the TDSB Health App.

Should you have any questions, please contact the school, visit the TDSB website or visit the TPH website for general information. For general questions, please call the TPH COVID-19 Hotline at 416-338-7600, Monday-Sunday 8:30 AM – 8:00 PM, to speak with an agent. If you need immediate assistance, please call Telehealth Ontario 24 hours a day at 1-866-797-0000.
