NT’s Post-Secondary Fair

We are very excited to see  you and your children tomorrow night, Tuesday October 17 from 6:30pm – 9:00pm at our Post-Secondary Fair!  Nearly 50 Universities and Colleges from across Canada will be in attendance.  The fair has NOT been affected by the College Strike.  The panels and fair will run as planned.

Network upgrade – system down Thursday

The TDSB will be switching the school over to a faster network on Thursday, October 12 (day 1) – Red and Grey Day.  The school network is scheduled to be down from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm to complete the work. The TDSB will likely complete the work earlier and the network may be available before 4:30.

This means that staff & students will be unable to print and will only be able to access their Gmail, Google classroom, Google drive ONLY through their own personal data plans for the time that the network is down.

Timetable changes today

This is to advise that North Toronto has been granted an additional release of a 0.5 teacher allocation to address cap size and teacher/pupil ratio issues.
In order to balance class sizes and to be consistent with the TDSB workload accord regarding class sizes and teacher/pupil ratio, 39 Grade 11 and 12 Grade 12 students will  have their timetables changed as of  Wednesday October 11, 2017.  They will be notified of the change this morning (Tuesday October 10) during Home Form period.
This timetable reorganization will allow us to create smaller class sizes and will reduce the teacher/pupil ratio amongst certain staff members whose current class sizes far exceed the normal class cap.
Teachers, administration, and Guidance counsellors will work together to ensure a smooth transition for all students who will be impacted by this change.

Phone Issues at NT

The TDSB is currently installing  new phones board-wide. We received ours last week. However – there are some issues. Some of the phones cannot be initialised for message pick-up and some voice mails have been set up incorrectly. We are waiting to hear back from the technician to correct the situation. In the meantime the preferable way to contact teachers is via email. Thank you.
