COVID-19 Update for Families

Please be advised that T.A.Blakelock is currently closed due to the Province of Ontario four-week province-wide shutdown in effect until Jan 23, 2021. School will reopen to in-person learners on Monday Jan. 25. We are working remotely and staff can be reached by email.

All current secondary students enrolled in virtual school will continue in virtual learning.

Student Census

The HDSB is conducting a Student Census throughout the winter of 2021 as required by the Anti-Racism Act, 2017 and Ontario’s Education Equity Action Plan. Students in Grade 4 - 12 will complete the electronic census independently during provided class time. For students in Kindergarten to Grade 3, parent(s)/guardian(s) will complete the census on behalf of their child.

It is important that the Student Census reflects the voices of all students, therefore the more responses we receive, the more effective the data will be to help inform and improve programming and learning environments. The Student Census is voluntary and students and parents/guardians can skip any question they do not want to answer. If you have concerns about your child’s participation, please email

For additional information, please view the recording of the virtual HDSB Student Census Information Session held on Dec. 8, 2020 as well as the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) on the Student Census webpage for detailed information.
