Social Media Awareness, Child Exploitation and Cyber Safety, Parent Info Session

Internet exploitation can range from inappropriate sharing of personal information to the more serious human trafficking concerns in our society. The presentation will focus on awareness of commonly used social media apps and supporting parents in effectively communicating with their children regarding social media use.

Climate Survey

You are invited to complete our Parent Climate Survey. At the Simcoe Muskoka Catholic District School Board, we are committed to working together to create learning environments where everyone feels safe, included and valued as members of our education community. The climate survey is focused on factors such as engagement, relationships, spirituality, health, safety, inclusion, etc., that impact a positive climate where all members of the community can thrive.

Please take approximately 10 minutes of your time to help us find out what strengths we have as an education community and what opportunities we can work on together to improve. This survey is voluntary, however your thoughts, feelings and opinions are important to us. This survey is anonymous and all responses will be combined for reporting.

This survey will be available until Friday, May 31, 2019.

Dress Code Reminders

The warmer weather will soon be upon us.  Please remember to ensure that your child comes to school dressed for the weather and dressed appropriately, following our school dress code as outlined in the student agendas.  Also, don’t forget to apply sunscreen before school and encourage your child to drink plenty of water throughout the day! If you are in doubt about an article of clothing, then your child should not wear it to school.  Please ensure that children are dressed for success! Thank you for supporting our efforts to promote a safe, positive and respectful environment.
