UPDATE Grade 9 EQAO Math Test

The 2020 Grade 9 EQAO Math assessment is now on hold.  A system message will be issued by the TDSB and shared with the parent community as soon as possible.

Late Starts/Early Dismissals

As you may be aware, secondary teachers, represented by the Ontario Secondary School Teachers' Federation (OSSTF), began taking part in a limited withdrawal of services (sometimes referred to as work-to-rule) on Tuesday, November 26, 2019. A list of OSSTF job actions is available online.

At our school, we have a late start on Tuesday, December 3rd and Tuesday, December 17th to accommodate staff meetings. As the sanctions include restrictions on staff meetings that make them more challenging to run, they are not occurring during this work-to-rule. We will no longer be following the late start schedule currently in place for the month of December. Classes at Malvern CI will revert back to the regular class day schedule meaning school will start at 9 am and end at 3:15 pm

At this time, negotiations between OSSTF, the Ontario Public School Board Association and the Ontario government continue and we are hopeful that an agreement can be reached soon.

We will continue to monitor the situation and we will update parents/guardians with new information as soon as it becomes available. For ongoing updates, please visit the TDSB webpage for Labour Negotiations and follow @tdsb on Twitter.

Gr 12 Grads: Student accounts will be disabled after June

Attention Grads!

Your TDSB student account will be inactive at the end of this school year and, as such, you will no longer be able to access your email, H(ome) Drive and Google Drive.

Please copy and save all the files that you want to keep from those drives.

IT Services has a tool, Google Takeout, for saving work from your TDSB account to a personal Google account.

Password Manager Service

Students are asked to go to https://pmgr.tdsb.on.ca/PMuser to register for the Password Manager Service so that they can reset their own password should they forget it (... usually happens to one or two students over the holiday break).

Enter the student # for User Name and the characters displayed (not case-sensitive) and click on Ok.

You will then need to set up your Personal Questions and Answers profile that will allow you to reset your forgotten password and unlock your account in the future.  Please remember your answers!

 



Digital Learning Tools (DLT) Consent Form

Student privacy continues to be an area of focus for the TDSB and parents/guardians. This September all schools were asked to obtain parent/guardian consent for the use of our school’s Digital Learning Tools including G Suite for Education and Desire to Learn (BrightSpace). 

Students will be provided with this Digital Learning Tools Consent Form through their home form teachers.  We kindly ask that you review and ensure that the form is returned to the home form teacher by Monday, November 19th

Students who do not have parental permission will not have access to their student Gmail accounts and various tools used in classrooms, and we will need to make other arrangements for some classroom activities.

It is anticipated some parents may have questions about this consent and the digital learning tools referenced. A web page, bit.ly/TDSBDLT, has been created to provide parents with additional information. If you have questions about signing the consent form, please contact Principal Bernadette Shaw.
