Please find below the letter regarding the acceptance of the out of district preschool children at Orde for September 2019 from the TDSB School Trustee, Chris Moise.  A town hall meeting is still in the planning stages, once we receive a date from the TDSB representatives we will inform all the parents via email and posting.

Letter from Trustee Moise

Save the Date | Town Hall

February 22nd, 2019

Since 1979 it has been the practice of the Toronto District School Board (TDSB) and Orde Street Public School to consider children registered at Orde Day Care “in-district” as per the TDSB policy and they have not been required to complete an Optional Attendance application (TDSB Operational Procedure PR545: Optional Attendance 9.2).

On February 15, 2019 Orde Day Care was informed otherwise and that this change in will take effect immediately with JK students beginning school in September 2019.

We have requested a meeting with school principal, Mr. Michael Walkington and/or a TDSB Planning Department representative to respond directly to the questions and concerns of our Orde Day Care families.  The date has yet to be confirmed but it will take place next week on either Tuesday, February 26 or Thursday, February 28.  Orde Day Care will be providing childcare for families to be able to attend.

Out of District families at Orde Day Care

February 22nd, 2019

Important Information

Out of District families planning on attending Orde Street Public School.

On February 15, 2019 Orde Day Care was informed by Orde Street Public School that children currently enrolled in the preschool daycare who live outside of the residential boundaries of Orde Street Public School will not be admitted into the school for kindergarten starting September 2019. These families are being asked to return to their home school for kindergarten and access the licensed child care center affiliated with their school. Only parents who have no access to child care at their home school may be considered for enrollment in the kindergarten program at Orde Street Public School.

A town hall meeting will be held next week, time and date yet to be determined.  We are asking all parents who will be affected by this new requirement, and those parents who have younger children to attend.

We are also asking our in district families in our preschool program to attend this meeting to show your support for our out of district preschool children and families.
