Dear Students and Parent/Guardians:
Some of you have asked questions and expressed concern regrading the status of student photos, especially for graduates. We are aware of how important this is to students and their families, as it is an important part of the conclusion to students’ high school life, especially in a year significantly disrupted by the pandemic.
Rest assured that we have a tentative schedule in place with a vendor for the end of March and early April, and protocols in place to protect the health of students and staff.
However, we remain under the direction of Toronto Public Health, and until we move into a lower level of lockdown (the tentative date is March 8, but it is, of course, contingent upon infection rates) schools are not allowed to have photographers in schools.
Our sincere hope is that we will be able to provide specifics soon regarding school photos.

Message from Trustee Pilkey:
Please find attached the announcement/flyer for the Ward 7 Forum on Equity that is being held on January 19, 2021. This ward Forum is open to anyone who is interested so I would ask that you circulate this information as widely as possible to your school communities. I have included a jpj which works well for posting in Facebook groups and school websites.
In order to get the Zoom link, people need to preregister and will have the opportunity to provide questions as part of the registration. The Zoom link will be shared on Tuesday to those who registered.
The presentation will made by jaime berrigan and Shayle Graham, TDSB K-12 Equity Coaches.
As well, please find the meeting agenda attached.
I am also attaching a report that came to the Program and School Services Committee last night - Update on Multi Year Strategic Plan Action plans - Equity, Anti-Racism and Anti-Oppression, 2019-2020, including Centre for Excellence for Black Student Achievement as it provides quite a good overview on what the TDSB is doing to meet the MYSP as it relates to Equity, ABR and Anti Oppression.
Looking forward to seeing you! I think it will be a great session.

Message from the TDSB:
Good Afternoon Parents/Guardians,
Today, the Government of Ontario announced new measures to help slow the spread of COVID-19 in the province. As part of today’s announcement, the government has said that all schools in Toronto will remain closed to students and staff until Wednesday, February 10. During the closure period, remote learning will continue, as will in-person supports for students with special education needs who cannot be accommodated through remote learning.
Our schools will continue to support all families to ensure that learning can continue as best as possible during the closure, although we recognize that everyone is trying their best to balance life, work, childcare, and remote learning, among other things right now. While we believe the continuation of learning is important, the mental health and well-being of our students is just as important. We would encourage parents/guardians to review these important resources that we have compiled that may help support your children during this challenging period.
We know the current situation is far from ideal for many of our families, but we will continue to support you as best we can during this time. Should you have any questions or concerns, please speak with your child’s school.
