School Community Check-In & Update

Good Afternoon Samuel Hearne MS Community,

We hope that you and your families/loved ones are doing well, staying safe and healthy.

As we move forward with week 4 of our remote learning, we would once again like to extend our most sincere thanks to our School Community. Students continue to engage online and our Staff continue to share the successes of our Students.

Please see the sections below for our latest School Community Check-In and Update:

Extension of School Closures Announced:

Please see the letter sent to TDSB Parents/Guardians on Sunday, April 26, 2020 from the TDSB Director of Education (Dr. John Malloy) for updates and information regarding TDSB School Closures. As noted in the letter, Minister of Education Stephen Lecce announced that all publicly-funded schools in Ontario, including those at the TDSB, will remain closed until at least May 31, 2020 as part of ongoing efforts to stop the spread of COVID-19. As more information becomes available, details will be shared as soon as possible by the TDSB.

Please be reminded to continue to check your email for important updates from the TDSB, from your child’s Teacher and from the School. Google Classroom, Class Dojo and TDSB email continue to be the main spaces for/methods of classroom-based communication, between Students and their Teachers.

Helpful Resources & Links:

Our School Community is reminded that should you require the services/support of our Settlement Counsellor (Fawzia Haji) or our Community Support Worker (Steve Salfarlie), to please email me directly at Joseph.Romano@tdsb.on.ca for more information. 

Further, please see below for a list of Helpful Resources and Links, all (and more) available at www.tdsb.on.ca:

TDSB Library Items Email:

Some Students and Families may have received an email from the TDSB Library Department/Library Help Desk regarding fines, overdue and missing books.

Please be advised that such emails were sent out in error due to a technical issue, and at this time there are no overdue notices being sent in relation to any TDSB Library items. If you have received such an email, please disregard it and apologies are shared for this error.


As always, Parents/Guardians are reminded that should you have any questions or concerns please email me directly at Joseph.Romano@tdsb.on.ca.

Thank You!

Take Care,
Mr. J. Romano, Principal & Ms. N. Blackwood-Fuller, Vice Principal
