You will be emailed a link to this ceremony by 10:00 a.m. on Wednesday, June 22. If you do not receive the link by 11:00 a.m., please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
On Wednesday, June 22 (10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.), students who would like to take a look at their final exam papers can meet with their teachers either online or onsite. Please make an appointment with your teachers directly. Students have been reminded to clean out their lockers. Any items unclaimed by July 15 will be donated. Semester 2 report cards will be available to be viewed on July 8.

A message to school communities from The Ministry of Education
In an effort to help slow the spread of COVID-19, reduce absenteeism, and to continue to support our school communities, Fieldstone is pleased to offer rapid antigen test kits for symptomatic students and staff. In alignment with the updated testing guidance from Ontario’s Chief Medical Officer of Health, when a student or staff member returns from an unplanned absence, they are able to receive a rapid antigen test (RAT) kit, to be used only if the individual is experiencing symptoms compatible with COVID-19. We are providing updated guidance regarding the use and handling of rapid antigen tests.
- The Ontario COVID-19 Science Advisory Table has updated the recommendations for how to complete an oral/nasal swab used for rapid antigen testing. This is an optional swabbing approach. Directions on how to collect a sample can be found here: https://www.ontariohealth.ca/sites/ontariohealth/files/2022-02/COVID-19RapidAntigenTests-HowtoCollectaSample.pdf
- You may also reference this how-to video for a nasal swab: https://youtu.be/EWSFJ1JoUd0
Please note that the Chief Medical Officer of Health has updated guidance for anyone who has had a positive test result (molecular/PCR or RAT). Individuals who receive a positive test result should not participate in antigen testing for 30 days from their COVID-19 infection (based on the date of their symptom onset or test). After this period, symptomatic individuals can resume COVID-19 rapid antigen testing in accordance with: https://www.health.gov.on.ca/en/pro/programs/publichealth/coronavirus/docs/contact_mngmt/management_cases_contacts_omicron.pdf
Lifting of Health and Safety Measures in Schools
Effective March 21, 2022
Masking & Staff Personal Protective Equipment
In alignment with community masking requirements, masks will no longer be required for students, staff, and visitors in schools and on student transportation. Eye protection for staff will also no longer be required.
We know that many students and staff may choose to continue to wear masks at times, or consistently for the remainder of the school year. We encourage school boards and schools to promote respectful, welcoming and inclusive practices and communications within their school communities.
A reminder that under current federal travel requirements, upon return from international travel, individuals must wear a mask at all times when in public spaces (including schools and child care), maintain a list of all close contacts for your first 14 days in Canada, and monitor yourself for signs and symptoms of COVID-19.
On-site Confirmation of Screening
Daily on-site confirmation of screening for all students and staff will no longer be required. Staff and students should continue to self-screen every day before attending school using either the COVID-19 school and child care screening tool, or a screening tool designated by the local public health unit. The screening tool has been updated to align with the updated COVID-19 Integrated Testing & Case, Contact and Outbreak Management Interim Guidance: Omicron Surge.
Local public health units may designate a commensurate or more restrictive screening tool for local use.
Toronto Public Health – Vaccination Campaign for Grade 7 to 12 Students
All Grade 7 to 12 students are eligible to receive the meningococcal, human papillomavirus, and hepatitis B vaccines, if they have not already received them.
Starting this March, students will be able to get vaccinated at Toronto Public Health’s vaccination clinics.
Please view the attached Parent’s Package and Consent Form.
Each student will need their own appointment prior to attending the clinic. Appointments can be booked at www.tphBookings.ca/tph/studentvaccines.
Parking Lot Drop-off/Pick-Up Loop – Reminder
Please do not park in the drop-off/pick-up loop of the parking lot, as this will block other cars from being able to enter and exit school property safely. If you are waiting to pick up your child(ren), please park in a parking spot, and not the parking lot loop. Thank you in advance for your assistance.
No Smoking or Vaping Policy
A reminder to students that smoking/vaping is not allowed within 20 meters of the school perimeter and is strictly prohibited on school property. This is both a school policy and provincial law.
Please follow us on social media to keep up with our latest events, photos, and activities. Click below for links.
