TEMPORARY EXCUSAL

We do recognize, from time to time, students may be away from school for a defined timeframe for reasons other than illness (e.g. family trip or obligation). We will no longer be using the TLDSB Parent Request for Temporary Excusal Form.  We ask parents/guardians to provide a LETTER, to the Principal, outlining the temporary excusal along with a specified timeframe for the absence. The time frame must be explicitly stated and cannot be indefinite or until further notice

PACKING A LUNCH THAT SUPPORTS LEARNING

A school lunch gives children the energy and nutrients students need to get them through an active afternoon.  When planning healthy lunches keep these tips in mind:

  • Include at least one serving from each food group from Canada‘s Food Guide
  • Rather than buying pre-made lunch kits, make your own healthy “lunch kit” with divided containers and small ‘bite-sized” crackers, cheese cubes, left over chicken chunks, veggie sticks or fruit slices
  • Get your kids to eat more veggies…send cucumber coins, zucchini sticks and pepper strips with dip
  • Don’t drink your fruit…send water instead. Save the 100% fruit juice for home
