Advocacy Letter for the TDSB

Hello Gledhill Families:
As you have likely heard by now, the Ministry of Education released it’s Guide to Reopening Ontario’s Schools late last week. The TDSB also released it’s reopening guidelines.
A TDSB “School Board Committee of the Whole” special meeting took place this morning (August 4th) to discuss and vote on the suggested guidelines.
We know many of you have ongoing concerns about the plans and guidelines as currently outlined.
Despite the short window to advocate in advance of today’s meeting, we wanted our school community to have its voice heard.
The result is the attached letter which has been forwarded to the Board and Trustee, as well as our school administration and our MPP.  Special thanks go to the Secord P.S.
School Council who provided us access to a great template from which to work. We tried to incorporate many of the common concerns we have been hearing, both generally and those specific to our school context. Given the time constraints, we engaged the Gledhill School Council Executive, as well as other council members and several parents/guardians in the creation/ adaptation of this letter.
Thank you to everyone who helped pull this response together. It was signed and sent by the Council Executive for consideration at this morning’s meeting.
