School Council Meeting

Our next virtual school council meeting is scheduled for March 7, 2022  at 7:00 p.m.  All families are welcome.  Families must RSVP in order to attend and receive the link. Our school council chair can be contacted at


Parents/guardians who are driving to school should review the map below.

  • Parents/guardians should not be stopping on the street (dotted red line on the map) where stopping is NOT permitted and letting their children out, this is unsafe and it blocks traffic.  
  • Parents/guardians should NOT park in the school parking lot or bus loop. The parking lot is for staff parking only. 
  • Parents/guardians should NOT be parking where there is a solid red line on the map during drop-off or pick-up
  • When dropping off in the loop it is important that you pull up to the front and drive slowly and remain patient as we ensure student safety.

Daily Screening Reminder

Thank you for your ongoing support. Keeping Parkview safe is a shared responsibility. It is important that each morning, families:

  1. Screen your child prior to sending them to school using the Covid School & Childcare Screening Tool.
  2. Once this is done please complete the daily screening confirmation
  3. If your child is at home due to illness, please ensure that you follow the isolation guidelines outlined by Public Health before sending them back to the school. Please inform the school if your child is displaying Covid Symptoms. Students will be permitted to return once isolation has been completed along with a School Attestation Form.
  4. Please do NOT send your child to school if they are feeling sick or are displaying symptoms related to COVID 19.

We have created QR codes for both websites for ease of access.

Possibility of Pivoting to Virtual Learning

As staff members are required to isolate with increased cases of COVID-19, schools may encounter challenges obtaining replacement coverage. Please be aware that there may be occasions when classrooms or schools are required to close to in-person learning and move to virtual learning for a period of time.  Families will be notified the day before through email and again in the morning, if a school or classroom closure needs to occur.  Families are asked to develop a routine of checking email regularly at the start and end of every day for important communication from the school and Board given our circumstances.

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:

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. Windows will also remain OPEN at Parkview, therefore it is important that your child dresses in layers.

Black Mental Health Day – March 7- 2022

March 7, 2022 is Black Mental Health Day in Ontario. This day provides an opportunity to raise awareness about the harms of anti-Black racism on mental health and the specific mental health needs of Ontario’s Black communities as well as encourage action for systemic change.

The Community Care Team supporting African Caribbean and Diaspora will be hosting a drop-in event for Black parents, guardians and youth on Monday March 7, 2022 from 7:00-8:30 PM. The Mental Health Drop In for Black Parents is an opportunity for parents to hear and learn about ways to promote and sustain positive mental wellness for their children in light of the ongoing pandemic challenges and the impacts of systemic racism.
