Flood Watch, Oct 28-29

Flood Watch will be in effect through Thursday October 29, 2015

Weather Conditions:
With over 30mm of rainfall already fallen and more heavy rainfall expected through the afternoon and evening, Toronto and Region Conservation authority advises that flooding is likely.

Issues:
All rivers within the Greater Toronto area will be experiencing high flows and water levels, resulting in unsafe conditions. The Don River has yet to peak and is still rising.  Therefore, there is a potential for flooding of the Bayview Avenue extension.

Actions:
Please exercise extreme caution around all bodies of water and avoid driving in low-lying areas and roadways particularly at underpasses.  Please alert any children under your care of these dangerous conditions and supervise their activities. Be alert for possible transportation delays and road closures.

For more information please contact the on-call Flood Duty Officer.

Lunch time reminders

Students going off property for lunch should be limited to going home or no further east than the mall at Bayview and York Mills. There is insufficient time to go to Leslie St. Students that have done this have consistently been late coming back to school and therefore missed valuable instructional time.

Students should also be reminded to staff of the roads, cross the streets safety after checking for traffic in both directions and respect all drivers and community members when accessing restaurants or grocery stores.

We ask that all parents and guardians reinforce these basic courtesies and expectations.
