Toronto Catholic District School Board

Supervision

Students are supervised in the schoolyard from the arrival of the first bus (8:20 a.m.) until the entry bell has rung, during recesses, lunch hour and after school while they are waiting for the bus. On rainy or exceptionally cold days the students are supervised inside the building.

 

Safe Arrival Policy
If your child is going to be absent from school, please call 393-5350 between 8:30 and 9:30 a.m. This will assist us and save time. Our secretary will begin phoning you at home or at work at 9:30 a.m. Thus we ensure the safety of all our children either at school or at home.

 

Student Illness
Children who are sick will be more comfortable and recover faster if they are kept at home. We ask parents to keep their children at home if they are not well enough to enjoy the recess break. Please notify the principal if your child or children have ongoing medical conditions that may require special consideration.

 

TCDSB Homework

Kindergarten— Grade 3
Formal homework is not assigned in Kindergarten. In Grades 1-3, students are expected to finish incomplete class work at home. The importance of reading at home cannot be emphasized enough. Reading can take the form of reading along with, or being read to by your children. School books, poetry, library books, comics, etc., are all appropriate for home reading. In addition, helping in the kitchen or around the house or with the shopping helps to develop responsibility, independence and task completion.

Grades 4-5-6
In the Junior Division, homework assignments usually involve the completion of work begun at school. Projects may be assigned as homework to complement the work going on in school. Reading, personal writing and daily review of work already completed should form a regular portion of an evening's homework.

Grades 7-8
The Intermediate Division curriculum guidelines recommend that 25% of the total mark in any subject area be made of homework/study skills. In order for students to be well prepared for Secondary School, formal homework is assigned regularly in conjunction with the classroom program.
