Orange Shirt Day

posted Sep 27, 2018, 9:37 AM by Wendy Kostecki   [ updated Sep 27, 2018, 9:39 AM ]

Inspired by the story of Phyllis (Jack) Webstad, Orange Shirt Day is held annually on September 30th.  Phyllis was a student at St. Joseph Mission Residential School in Williams Lake B.C.  Orange Shirt Day is inspired by her experience on her first day at Residential School.

Join the Halton District School Board in recognizing the harm the Residential School system did to the identity, self-esteem, and well-being of First Nations, Métis, Inuit children and communities. Let's show our support and reinforce the fact that everyone around us matters and that our actions help move us towards truth and reconciliation. HDSB schools and education centres are encouraged to recognize the day on Friday, September 28th.  However, with our Terry Fox event happening tomorrow, we are choosing to show our support on Monday October 1st

Thank you for your support.

Anaphylaxis, Asthma, Diabetes, Epilepsy/Seizure Disorder

posted Aug 30, 2018, 3:51 PM by Wendy Kostecki   [ updated Aug 30, 2018, 3:54 PM ]

As we begin a new school year, we want to ensure that we have the most current records for students with medical conditions.  Please call the office as soon as possible if your child has anaphylaxis, asthma, diabetes or epilepsy/seizures.
 
You will be sent paperwork to complete or you can find forms under "Student Health" on our website main page.  You will be asked to book a meeting with Mrs. Ferro, Vice Principal, to discuss your child's specific needs. 

Even if we already have medical information for your child on file, we ask you to call the office as the Board's protocol around medical conditions has been updated and we want to ensure that we have all required information for your child.
