Principal’s Update

23 May

Dear Summit Heights Families,


On behalf of our entire staff, we hope that you and your loved ones are continuing to be healthy and are coping well during these unprecedented times.  We sincerely miss your children and you!   Hopefully you have been receiving the emails from the TDSB, updates about safety measures in place in and around our school, the school closures, distance learning etc.   If you haven’t been receiving these emails, please email me (!

As announced by the Ontario Government, and the TDSB, our field is open for use now.  It may take another week day or so for our basketball hoops to be installed, but that too will be open for use.  Please note, playscapes remain closed, please be mindful of that if you’re visiting our school grounds.  On this same note, please remember that dogs are not permitted on our property.

The TDSB is currently working on a protocol to organize and grant access to schools for the retrieval of personal items belonging to students.  Please continue to be patient.  Once the plan has been developed and shared with school staff, we will organize and work to ensure that those who want to retrieve their items will have the opportunity to do so, before the summer.

Likewise, the board is working on a plan for the Term 2 Report Cards.  While our staff are working on these, a plan is being developed for the logistics of getting these into your hands.  As we know more, we will share more information.

Construction work has resumed at our school recently.  Crews have been on site, working to complete the new HVAC system in our gym.  There has also been work to bring our electrical system up to present day code.

Finally, you likely recall the upbeat and fun Xmovement initiative that SAC brought to our school this past year.  Xmovement has shared an online resource for you and your family to engage in!  These resources will help you and your family: 

– Learn new skills to deal with emotions and relationships

– Keep fit with activities like dance, mindfulness, sports, martial arts

– Stay busy and entertained with weekly family challenges and games
