Safe School talks with classes

This week, our students and staff engaged in conversations around caring, safe and inclusive school environments.  In meetings with classes we discussed the elements of a Caring and Safe School that would support the academic achievement and well-being of all students, including:

  • Demonstrating positive character attributes (such as empathy, courage and respect for human rights and inclusivity)
  • Items and behaviours that are not allowed on school property (peanut butter, fake weapons and multitools (ex. utility knives) )
  • What happens in situations of discipline
  • Standing up for each other in bullying situations, including methods of reporting incidents of bullying:
    • Tell a caring adult

For more details on each of these items, please read the YRDSB Start-Up Guide.

You can also visit the YRDSB’s Caring and Safe Schools website for details and resources for families to continue the conversation.

We hope that you have a wonderful week and thank you for supporting our safe, positive and inclusive school community.

Mr. Collins
