Report Cards & Retrieval of Items

Posted On Friday May 29, 2020

Dear Parents/Guardians,

I am writing today to inform you that on Friday, June 5, DDSB elementary educators will be participating in a board-wide report card writing day.  School Boards in Ontario have one such day identified in June for elementary educators and ours is next Friday. This week the Ministry of Education confirmed that such days should still occur in preparation of the distribution of report cards later in June. For that reason, educators will not be participating in Distance Learning on that day.

With the ongoing closure of schools, the way that we deliver report cards to students will be changing and we are currently looking into the feasibility of distributing report cards electronically to families. Once these plans are finalized, your school’s principal will be providing families with more information.

You will also be receiving a message from your school’s principal early next week outlining the process for you/your child to retrieve personal belongings from school. The protocol that has been developed has been approved by the Durham Region Health Department and prioritizes the health and safety of students, parents/guardians and staff.

On behalf of everyone at the DDSB, we wish you a relaxing weekend ahead and hope that you are continuing to stay well. To stay up to date about activities across the DDSB, please visit our website at

With thanks,


Norah Marsh

Acting Director of Education

Durham District School Board
