    September News!

    Greetings Frontenac Families!


    Fall has finally arrived and with it come cooler temperatures.  Just a reminder, especially for our little ones, to dress in layers, so that they are comfortable and able to sustain the long periods outside.  


    This week is a filled with activities for the kids.  Here’s what’s happening at the FRO!!


    Coming Up This Week:

    1. Terry Fox Run - On Thursday, September 29 at 3p.m. all students will participate by walking, running or rolling to support Terry’s dream to see an end to cancer!  Please dress your child in red and support them through the online fundraising.  Students also have the option to bring a donation of $2.00 (“Twoonies for Terry”) on the day of the run.  If you are interested in joining us, please connect with your child’s teacher.


    1. Let’s Play Catch! - Blue Jays fever has hit Frontenac!  Last year, we set aside one of our nutrition breaks to play catch with our students.  This year, with the generous donation of tennis balls by the Ace Tennis program, we are ready to bring back a successful day of connecting with your children.  Believe it or not, the ability to catch and receive is part of the physical education curriculum.  So on Friday, September 30 please have your child wear blue or Blue Jay gear!


    News From School Council:

    Our QSP fundraising campaigning that has been a great success for our school community in past years.  Once again, we will be hosting a kick-off assembly Friday afternoon.  Please look out for information coming home.   We appreciate your ongoing support as all fundraising goes back to providing meaningful opportunities for your child(ren) in both learning, achievement and experiences.


    Have a great week, Frontenac ~ Together, Learning and Caring!

  • Concussion Protocol

    Concussion Protocol

    The HDSB has updated its Concussion Protocol, as per Ministry of Education expectations. Recent research has made it clear that a concussion can have a significant impact on a student's cognitive and physical abilities. In fact, research shows that activities that require concentration can actually cause a student's concussion symptoms to reappear or worsen. It is equally important to help students as they “return to learn” in the classroom as it is to help them “return to physical activity”.

    HDSB and its parents are key partners in the health and safety of our students and as such there are key components that parents will need to be made aware of in the case of a suspected or diagnosed concussion.

    Students who demonstrate signs or symptoms of a concussion while at school will be required to seek medical examination through a medical doctor or nurse practitioner. Contact will be made with parents and the proper forms will be sent home with the student.

    Students who receive a bump to the head, neck or body, will not always show signs or symptoms immediately.  In the best interest of the student’s health, the student will be required to be monitored for a minimum of 24 hours, both at school and at home.  Students will not be able to participate in any physical activity until the minimum 24 hours has passed, no sign or symptoms were observed, and Form C-3 has been signed and returned to the school. If at any time during this monitoring phase signs or symptoms present, students must be seen by a medical doctor or nurse practitioner.

    Concussions that occur outside of school:

    It is important to note that students who have a suspected or diagnosed concussion that occurs outside of school hours or school sanctioned events are still required to follow the HDSB Concussion Protocol process. We request that parents inform the school administration as soon as possible regarding these events.

    Please go to our website for further information and required forms:http://www.hdsb.ca/ParentInfo/Pages/Health%20and%20Nutrition%20in%20Schools/Protocol.aspx
