Keeping Parkview Safe

York Region Public Health released its new screening guide.  A reminder that  All students are required to complete the screening guide daily before coming to school. Keeping Parkview safe is a shared responsibility, it is important that parents/guardians and caregivers screen their children prior to sending them to school. Please ensure that your family contact information is up to date. 

We would like to thank  our Panther family for your continued support in keeping Parkview safe.  A reminder that parents and caregivers  who are dropping off their child must wear a mask and are kindly asked to not remain on board property once their child is in the care of an educator. Pets are not allowed on school property.

Preparing for Potential School Staff Shortages During In-Person Learning

We continue to work with York Region Public Health to ensure our schools are safe for students and staff. In doing so, there are occasions, where students and staff members are required to self-isolate. These measures require the board to rely on ensuring adequate student supervision for safety. In previous years, where no occasional teacher or other staff member was available, schools combined classes for short periods of time. During the global pandemic, student contacts must be minimized and classes cannot be combined. As such, we may face specific situations where schools are required to close to in-person learning due to self-isolation requirements, even if COVID-19 case counts do not appear significant. We will continue to take all necessary planning and precautions to keep schools open, but may also need to make difficult decisions to close to ensure safety. 

Equity & Inclusive Education 

At Parkview we are committed to Equity and Inclusive Education. At our last council meeting we reviewed the book Anti Racist Baby. We want our Panthers to become critical thinkers and agents of change in the world. Thank you to our Parkview community for all your support over the years. Here are some resources for families:
