Video + Reminders

Dear Jackman ICS Families,

We have had a wonderful first week of Winter Term! The children have been enjoying their new spaces and our new gym! The talented Zach Pederson, who works with The Robertson Program at JICS, created a short video of our first day back and the children's reactions to some of our new spaces. Please take time to enjoy it with your children:

New Gym and Proper Footwear

We ask that all children wear indoor shoes (running shoes) that are non-marking to protect the floors of our new gym.

Outdoor Play + Winter weather

We do not let rain or snow get in our way of important outdoor play. Puddles are hard to resist for children of all ages! Please send your child with outdoor clothing and footwear appropriate to weather conditions.

Snow Information Line

Should parents be concerned about adverse weather conditions and/or school

closure, information can be found on the University of Toronto Snow Line at 416-

978-7669 (978-SNOW) or on our Jackman ICS Twitter feed:

Our Twitter feed is also viewable on the homepage of our website.

The Laboratory School remains open if the University of Toronto is open.


If your child is sick, we ask that you do not send them to school. Please inform the school office of any absence 416-934-4517
