Parents: The TDSB has created a new PA day in April: Friday the 15th is now a PA day. For Bowmore, this means that the pizza lunch scheduled for April the 15th has now been moved to the following week (Friday April 22). Below is a copy of the letter from the TDSB or you can download the PDF version here: PDF version of TDSB letter.

We are writing to provide you with important information about an additional Professional Activity Day (P.A. Day) that has been added to the calendars of all schools in the Toronto District School Board (TDSB).
All TDSB schools will have a newly designated P.A. Day on Friday, April 15, 2016. This additional P.A. Day has been mandated by the Ministry of Education as a result of provincial labour negotiations.
All TDSB schools will be closed to students on Friday, April 15, 2016. On this day, teachers will be taking part in professional development on provincial education priorities identified by the Minister of Education.
Most Before-and-After School Programs will offer full-day care for children currently registered in their program on the P.A. Day. Parents/Guardians are encouraged to speak to their local child care provider for further details.
The remainder of the 2015-2016 school year calendar remains unaffected. As always, details on the school year calendar can be found on the TDSB website at: http://www.tdsb.on.ca/AboutUs/Calendar
