Parent Council Meeting, Tuesday August 25th 7pm

Hi Howard Families,

We hope everyone is hanging in there during this strange summer.

We all have questions about school reopening. Principal McKenzie will be available to answer questions at an advanced meeting of Parent Council via Zoom, next Tuesday at 7pm. In the meantime we would like to gather questions so that the meeting can be as useful as possible to parents, many of whom are struggling to make very tough decisions.

Please use this Google Form so that we can organize and gather the info ahead of the meeting:

And finally, parents may be interested in some TDSB webinars scheduled for next week as part of the TDSB Summer Conversation Series:

As we approach the return to school, PIAC and the Parent and Community Engagement Office have partnered to continue the Conversation Series with a number of online sessions for parents and caregivers:

  • Healing from Racialized Trauma, August 24, 6:30-8 p.m.
  • Supporting Mental Health and Well-Being during the Transition Back to Learning, August 27, 6:30-8 p.m.

Visit https://www.tdsb.on.ca/Community/How-to-Get-Involved/Conversations-Series to learn more about each session. Web links for access will be added closer to the date of each session.
Also, please find below link to the August 13th open conversation on School Reopening for those who missed it, with many questions being asked that you as a community have posed as well. https://www.tdsb.on.ca/stream/liveWebcast-SafeReopening.html

  1. Thanks so much for including the new Facebook group. We’ve had a lot of people join since this email went out. I am being very careful to make sure everyone knows the FB group is not overseen by the parent council.
