Closing Announcement: Both Sites

June 18th, 2010 by admin Leave a reply »

The Toronto District School Board has informed Orde Day Care that Orde Street PS will be closed on  Thursday, June 24 and Friday, June 25 because of the potential for disruption caused by nearby G20 Summit-related protests. Although the TDSB has not yet decided to close Contact Alternative School,  where the Satellite site is located, our usual evacuation site for Satellite day care will not be available.

In light of the decision of the TDSB and because of the closure of our usual evacuation sites, the Board of Directors has made the difficult decision that both the Orde Street and Satellite sites will be closed on Thursday June 24 and Friday, June 25

The safety of our children, families and staff are our main concern, and we appreciate your understanding in this decision.

It is anticipated that both sites will be open Monday June 21 to Wednesday June 23, 2010. However, possible that further decisions will have to be made to either close one or both Orde locations, or reduce hours or relocate prior to Thursday, June 24th.

Please keep in mind that there may be traffic problems near both sites beginning Monday and likely worsening through the week.

We will continue to assess the information we receive from the RCMP, Toronto Police Services, the City of Toronto and the Toronto District School Board. We will keep you informed of any further changes in our daycare schedule. It is possible that further decisions will have to be made to either close one or both Orde locations, or reduce hours. Please let staff or Board members know if you have questions or concerns.
