International Day of Pink

April 13, 2022 is the International Day of Pink. The International Day of Pink is a day when communities across Canada and across the world unite to celebrate diversity and raise awareness about the need to stop homophobia, transphobia, discrimination and all forms of bullying. On this annual day in April, individuals wear pink to show respect for diversity and to demonstrate support for learning and working environments which are safe and inclusive of people from all different backgrounds. Show your support by wearing pink on April 13, 2022.

Kindergarten Registration

Just a friendly reminder that Kindergarten registration is open.  More information regarding a virtual Welcome to Kindergarten Evening will be shared in the upcoming weeks.

Are You Moving?

As we begin to tentatively plan for the year ahead, it is important that you notify the school if you are moving or planning to have your children attend another school in September 2022. You can email the office at Parkview.ps@yrdsb.ca with this information.

Extended Vacation

Families going on an extended vacation must inform the office at Parkview.ps@yrdsb.ca.

Personal Items

Students are reminded that they should be bringing personal items (balls, toys, cards etc.,) to school. 

Daily Screening Reminder

Students, staff members and visitors are to continue to review and adhere to the COVID-19 School and Child-Care Screening Tool (please click on Check for Symptoms Daily), prior to entering the school daily.  The screening tool has been updated to reflect new masking and isolation requirements. 

Masks: Students, staff members and visitors to school will no longer be required to wear masks in school. Individuals who feel more comfortable, are advised or required to wear a mask can continue to wear a mask and will be supported in doing so. Although masks are not mandatory, we are encouraging students to continue to wear a mask. 

York Region Public Health is strongly encouraging students/attendees, staff and visitors to continue wearing a mask for at least two weeks after March Break in areas with the 3 Cs: crowded settings, places where there is close contact or when spaces may be confined.”

Additional information about what to do if you have tested positive or been exposed to a positive case can also be found at www.york.ca/safeatschool. Please note that close contacts of a COVID-19 case who are not required to isolate must self-monitor for 10 days (from last exposure) and wear a well-fitted mask in school and child care settings. This includes avoiding activities such as high-contact sports and where masking and/or physical distancing cannot be maintained.  


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.
