We are hoping that you are all well.  This week we had a virtual staff meeting and the staff all expressed how much that they are missing being with you at Rawlinson.  Staff have been collaboratively learning new things, planning and preparing for the teacher-led learning which begins on Monday, April 6th.  This will be new for all of us, and this opportunity will enable us to develop a stronger learning community at Rawlinson as we learn with and from each other.



Teachers have been reaching out to families this week by email and by phone.  They have been checking in to see how everyone is doing and also to see if any families need technological devices to support student learning.  If you have heard from your child’s teacher but have not responded, please do so as soon as possible. 


If you have not heard from your teacher, please call the school at 416-394-3080 and press 0 to leave a message.  Please leave us your name, your child’s name and the best number to reach you and we will get in touch with you as soon as possible.  Again the number is 416-394-3080 and you can either stay on the line or press 0 to leave a message.


We will continue to update you as more information becomes available.



Speaking on behalf of all of the staff at Rawlinson, we are missing all of our students and families.  Stay safe and be well.

Good afternoon Rawlinson Families,


We hope that this note finds you and your families well.  Please know that the staff at Rawlinson miss you.  As has been said by many, these are unprecedented times.  We know now that schools will not reopen on April 6th as initially scheduled. We have not yet received any additional information on timelines for reopening; however, we will update you as soon as more information becomes available.


In the meantime, we ask that you continue using the Learn at Home resources provided by the Ministry of Education and the Student Learning Resources provided by the TDSB.  These resources are for students from K-12 in both French and English.


This week is being used to set up our system for success. We are gathering information, assessing needs, and formulating plans around the continuation of learning for all of our students. We will be communicating with students and families as soon as these plans are finalized. 


Going forward, student well-being and mental health will also be an important focus. Both school-based staff and Professional Support Services share responsibilities for supporting student well-being. There are a variety of Mental Health and Well-Being Resources for students and families available on the TDSB website.


We will endeavour to provide new information to you as it becomes available. Information may come directly from the Director Malloy, the Director of Education via email. These Parent Letters (March 20th  & March 25th ) can also be found on our Board’s website at www.tdsb.on.ca  . With this in mind, if wish to update your email address in our database, please send me a note directly at: erin.altosaar@tdsb.on.ca

 If you have not received our emails or voicemails please contact the school at 

416-394-3080 and leave contact information for us to reach you.

Also, please feel free to email us if you have questions or concerns





Wishing you and your family the very best,

Erin Altosaar, Ted Vella, Jemaine Wallace and the Staff at Rawlinson
