Back to School Supporting Transitions and Re-Engagement:
The beginning of a new school year is always filled with anticipation, however this year we recognize the anxiety, fear, and uncertainty that comes with returning to learning. Join our Professional Support Services staff to connect about some areas where we can help support students, including routines, separation anxiety, and the social and emotional challenges of this new school year.
Your understanding and patience are greatly appreciated as we work to ensure a smooth opening to the 2021-2022 school year.
Mandatory COVID-19 Vaccination:
We have decided to have Madresatul Banaat staff develop a mandatory COVID-19 vaccination procedure which will require all our staff, Trustees, and visitors to disclose and provide proof of vaccination status and to be fully vaccinated to help protect the health and safety of both staff and students. We know that families may have questions about this new procedure and we will continue to provide updates as new information becomes available.
Madresatul Banaat Almuslimaat Health & Safety Practices:
As we continue to develop specific COVID-19 guidelines, the most up-to-date information will be posted to the parents as well as on our website. Below are the most recent decisions in a number of areas:
Daily Screening: We will require all students and staff to conduct a daily self-assessment and stay home if they have symptoms or other COVID-19 exposure risk factors. The daily screening practice will follow guidance from Toronto Public Health. The daily screening tool will be available to staff and families prior to the first day of school.
Nutrition Programs and Food Services: Approved nutrition programs services will be permitted and phased in to allow school routines to be established. Nutrition and cafeteria services will follow appropriate food handling procedures and public health guidance.

Beginning in September, students should be supported in transitioning to their next grade or course, acknowledging the prolonged absence of students from the classroom. Part of this support should include assessments to identify students’ strengths and gaps in learning at key instructional times to ensure students have fundamental building blocks in advance of new content. The primary purpose of instruction and assessment is to raise the skill level of all learners in their achievement of overall curriculum expectations across all subjects, courses, and grades.
Extra support and review is recommended for Math, English and Science for all grades specially, junior level.
Health and Physical Education:
Board has referred to Physical & Health Education (PHE) Canada’s resource or the Ontario Physical and Health Education Association (Ophea) website for suggestions on teaching physical education on line with current public health recommendations.
The online health and physical education classes are on providing students with the knowledge and skills they need to make healthy choices today and lead healthy active lives in the future.
Through participation in a wide range of physical activities, they develop knowledge and skills related to movement competence and personal fitness that provide a foundation for active living. They also acquire an understanding of the factors and skills that contribute to healthy development and learn how their own choices and behaviors, as well as various factors in the world around them, affect their own and others’ health and well-being.
Through our online classes, students build a stronger sense of themselves, learn to interact positively with others in a digital environment and in their community, and develop their ability to think critically and creatively.

No Clubs and sports.
