Dear Students, Parents/Guardians,

I wanted to provide you with information about a case of COVID-19 that has been identified in a student at Danforth CTI. We continue to work closely with Toronto Public Health (TPH) on this case, which last saw the student in the school on Tuesday, October 13, 2020. This student will not return to the school until cleared by TPH to do so.  As a result of this case, students who were in this student’s classes (cohorts) have been informed and instructed to self-isolate.  Our Vice-Principals have called all families to inform them directly and answer any questions students and their families may have.

As per our procedures, staff and students are required to wear masks while at school and to practice physical distancing, as well as proper hand hygiene—hand washing, sanitizer etc. While enhanced cleaning is conducted every day, we have made sure to conduct an enhanced cleaning in all affected areas of our school. TPH is monitoring the situation and, as always, will let us know if further precautions, actions or communications are required.

The health, safety and well-being of staff and students is our top priority. Should you have any questions, please contact me directly, 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.

As always, students, parents/guardians, please let me know if you have any questions.

Sincerely,

Rob MacKinnon

IMPORTANT UPDATE: Return to School Plans for September 2020 – Letter from Interim Director of Education, Carlene Jackson:

Dear Parents/Guardians,

As we prepare to open our schools in September and welcome back students and staff, we are doing everything possible to ensure the health and safety of all school community members. I wanted to take this opportunity to share with you Returning to School: A Guide to the Safe Reopening of the TDSBThis document outlines our plans on health and safety measures, learning models, well-being and supports and operations.

Staff have been working on these plans for the past few months guided by ongoing conversations with Toronto Public Health, the Ministry of Education, as well as staff, students, families and our union and federation partners. On July 30, we received final direction from the Ministry for the fall and were able to firm up our plans in the TDSB.

Additional information on our school reopening plans will be shared as we get closer to the opening of school. Visit our website —www.tdsb.on.ca/returntoschool — regularly for updates. Please also join us for a webinar on the Safe Reopening of Schools this Thursday, August 13 at 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. to learn more about our plans.

To help with our planning, you will be receiving — beginning Tuesday, August 11 — an automated School Messenger phone call from the TDSB asking for you to indicate your intentions for your child(ren) for September (i.e. will they be attending in-person classes or learning remotely). If the attempts to reach you by phone are not successful or you have been unable to respond to our calls, we will follow up with an email which will include a link to an online pre-registration form. Please note that more information on this pre-registration process will be shared with parents/guardians tomorrow.

Thank you for your continued patience and support.

Sincerely,
