This year, the Terry Fox Foundation celebrates 40 years of the Marathon of Hope. The Run’s theme will be “One Day. Your Way.” Due to public health concerns,people are being asked to participate in spirit, not in person this year. It’s up to you to choose how to celebrate your Terry Fox effort – walk, run, dance, hike – on a favourite route and with your favourite people. Toronto Prep School will take this opportunity to have every cohort learn about Terry Fox in class. Join TPS in our continuing effort to support fundraising for cancer research by donating on our Terry Fox School Run page: http://bit.ly/TPSTerryFox
As you may have heard, the Ministry of Education announced on Thursday that it has updated its COVID-19 school and child care screening guidance. Although we at Toronto Prep School still urge people to get tested, we will abide by the updated standards set by Toronto Public Health. Please see the attached updated checklist issued by Toronto Public Health.
According to the revised guidelines, students and children with symptoms such as fever and cough will still be advised to stay home until they are able to consult with a health care provider and receive an alternate diagnosis or a negative COVID-19 test. A second set of questions now deals with symptoms that are commonly associated with other illnesses, such as runny nose or headache, and provides the following direction:
Students and children with only one of these symptoms will be advised to stay home for 24 hours, after which they can return to school or child care if their symptoms are improving.
Students and children with two or more of these symptoms will be advised to stay home until they are able to consult with a health care provider and receive an alternative diagnosis or a negative COVID-19 test.
In addition, based on the latest public health guidance, the symptom list for children in school and child care no longer includes abdominal pain or conjunctivitis (pink eye).
Ensuring the health and safety of our staff and students is our priority and we all play a role. Again, one of the most important things families can to do help slow the spread of COVID-19 is to screen their children daily for COVID-19 symptoms and keep them home from school if they are sick or have had close contact with anyone diagnosed with COVID-19.
Thank you everyone for your generous donations to this year’s Terry Fox School Run! Although we were not able to participate in the event in-person as a group, the spirit of Terry’s message and motivation was exemplified in all of the various activities that our TPS cohorts took part in. In total, we raised $10,112 dollars towards cancer research. Great work Toronto Prep community!
February is Black History Month and Toronto Prep School students and staff have been working on a number of initiatives to recognize important people of colour from our communities, throughout history, and into the present.
This week, we invite you to participate in and share an online petition to induct Dr. Herbert H. Carnegie into the Hockey Hall of Fame.
Click this link to learn more about Herb Carnegie, who despite excelling in hockey was denied a chance to play in the NHL due to his race, and how his Future Aces program impacts underprivileged youth across Canada.
TPS shares a special relationship with the Carnegie family and so this initiative is near and dear to our hearts. Watch the video for a special message from Herbert Carnegie’s grandson, Rane Carnegie, to the TPS community.
