Happy November Frontenac Friends & Families!
We have had yet another successful month in October which concluded with our Halloween parade. Did you get a chance to check out our pictures on our Twitter page @FRO_Bison??
We look forward to November, we are excited to meet with families near the end of the month (November 24 p.m. and November 25 a.m.) for our student-led conferences. This is an opportunity for your child to highlight the great work that they have done, identify their strengths and work collaboratively towards a plan for improvement in other areas.
Extracurricular activities are an integral part of a child's experience. We are always appreciative of the staff and parent volunteers who give of their time to provide these opportunities. Boys and Girls Volleyball teams have been formed and are up and underway. In addition, we are excited to have this year a primary choir started. Thank you to Mrs. Parfett and Mrs. Smith for spearheading this!

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.
