Dear Ward 20 Parents,
RE: Child Care Options during G20 School Closures
On Friday evening my office received notice that the Toronto District School Board and Toronto
Catholic District School Board are closing the following schools on Thursday June 24th and Friday June 25th, 2010:

  • Alpha Alternative JS
  • Beverley PS
  • Island Public/Natural Science School
  • Ogden Junior PS
  • Orde Street Junior PS
  • St. Joseph College School
  • St. Michael Choir School
  • The Waterfront School

We realize that this creates a difficult situation for parents in the downtown who must work and will not have alternate options for the care of their school age children this week.

Although other schools in the City remain open, all student transportation has been cancelled by all of the publicly funded school boards on Friday, June 25th.

Working with staff of local community-based agencies, along with support from the City Manager and my office, the following options have been made available free of charge.

Three centres will offer free programs for school-age children on Thursday and Friday of this week.

  • Alexandra Park Community Centre (Spadina & Dundas area)
  • Scadding Court Community Centre (Bathurst & Dundas)
  • University Settlement House (McCaul & Dundas area)

More details on this are available on the next page (see PDF).
