.... Please be aware that due to the change in our Late Slip Process when you bring your student late there may be a lineup and wait for the late slip printer. All parents of kinder students must wait in line with their student until handed to a staff member who will run them to class. Please try to be at the school gates for the bell at 8:40 to avoid these lineups.

Please be kind and safe and do not park in the Bus Zone on Pleasant Ave! Please do not park in the handicap spots unless you have a permit. Please use the drop off/pick up Zone on Dufferin St. as a safe alternative! Thank you!

THE OFFICE at Harriet Tubman is a very busy place especially at the beginning of the day and during break times. If you need to have a message delivered to your child before the end of the day please ensure that you call the school prior to 1:00 pm. We cannot guarantee that students will receive messages called in after that time as students often have rotary during the last instructional block of the day. Early pick up is by 2pm. Please label all clothing with your student's name.

Is Your Child Going To Be Absent?

Please call the school when your child is going to be absent. An answering machine is available 24 hours a day.

If your child has COLD AND OR FLU SYMPTOMS when it is time for school, it is best that he/she/they stay home until they are symptom free for 24 hours.  Nausea or vomiting symptoms must be clear for 48 hrs......
