December 13 – 17

It’s hard to believe that this is our last week of school before the winter break.  School will be closed from December 20-December 31 and classes will resume on Monday, January 3, 2022.  

In person students will be given a rapid antigen test kit to use over the break.  Your child’s participation in this rapid antigen screening is voluntary.   At Parkview we are encouraging our families to participate in this program prior to having their child return to school in order to help keep our school safe. A letter will be sent home with additional information and instructions. 

Starting on January 3, 2022 students will once again be required to complete a daily confirmation of self-assessment, after completing the School and Child-Care Screening Tool.  Families will receive communication from YRDSB with more information.

Thank you to all of the families that donated to our Warm in Winter Drive and our Food Drive.  We have extended both of our drives until December 17.  

 Wishing you and your family a safe and happy holiday!   

Winter Clothing

Please ensure that your child/children are coming to school dressed appropriately for the weather (hats, mitts/gloves, boots, winter coats, snow pants, etc.,).  They should also have a pair of indoor shoes and a change of clothes, including extra socks. Please remember to label all items.

Inclement Weather

When an inclement weather day is declared, all elementary and secondary schools will be closed to students.  Please have alternate childcare arrangements planned for inclement weather days. All student learning will be remote and asynchronous. School closures will be announced by 6:00 a.m. and information will be communicated through:

This year we are fundraising to support the following initiatives:

  • Technology- purchasing more iPads and Chromebooks for students 
  • Literacy- investing in diverse books and levelled books to support guided reading
  • Well Being- indoor recess activities and more outdoor recess equipment 

Since we are limited with the type of fundraising we can engage in,  we are asking that families consider making a donation through School Cash Online.  The donations collected will go directly to supporting our students this year. Donations of $20 or more are fully tax-deductible and receipts will be provided through School Cash Online.  

All amounts are greatly appreciated. Thank you for your ongoing support!
