Snow Day: Tuesday January 18 (No School)

This evening, the City of Toronto has declared a major snow storm condition in Toronto in response to the significant snow and is encouraging residents to stay home after this snowfall to allow roads and sidewalks to be cleared properly. For that reason, the TDSB has made the decision to close all TDSB schools to in-person, remote/live, and virtual learning for today.

For more information, please review the TDSB Update.

Snow Day : Monday January 17

Given the significant snowfall overnight and more expected this morning, the TDSB has made the decision to cancel school busses and close all TDSB schools to in-person learning for today. As shared yesterday, all schools will be moving to remote learning today (either synchronous or asynchronous). Students, please check in with your teachers for more information regarding classes today.
