First Day of Classes for Students​​​​​​

In order to support student well-being and safety as they transition back to learning, the Toronto Catholic District School Board will be staggering the re-entry of students over a one week period at the start of the school year beginning on September 14, 2020. 
Secondary: Grade 9 students would attend for the first two days. Grade 10, 11 and 12 students would start on Wednesday, September 16, 2020. 
Staff will ensure that siblings who attend the same school will be scheduled on the same days. At this time, we do not have dates selected for individual students as schools are currently in the process of establishing class placements. Parents and guardians will receive confirmation of their child’s re-entry schedule from the school as soon as placements have been finalized. 
Please refer to our frequently asked questions​ about return to school for more information.
