Windows Replacement

Dear Families,
Our long-awaited window replacement project will soon begin!
We will be attempting to keep disruptions to students and our community at a minimum, but we will certainly appreciate your support and patience over the next few weeks.
Construction begins at the west side (primary tarmac area) of the school on Monday, November 26th.  Equipment being used by the construction team will be fully fenced off from students. Throughout this week, the junior basketball courts will be out of bounds, and large areas of the primary tarmac will also be inaccessible.  At times, we may need to divert students to enter through a different set of doors.  We may also have to temporarily relocate teachers and students to accommodate the construction. We will continue to have full supervision of students at the morning bell and will also have supervision during construction at the end of the day.
Once the windows on the west side of the school are replaced, construction will move to the south side…

Human Rights Commissioner's Office

York Region District School Board is committed to creating safe, equitable and inclusive learning and working environments. As part of this commitment, the Board established a Human Rights Commissioner’s Office (HRCO).
The HRCO was created in response to a growing awareness that a space was needed within the school board environment to effectively address issues of discrimination and harassment specific to the Human Rights Code.
The HRCO is an arms-length office for Human Rights Code compliance under the Board’s Human Rights Policy.
The HRCO website provides the YRDSB community access to important information related to human rights, a confidential complaint reporting process and contact information for the office.
The website can be found at www.yrdsb.ca/hrco.
