Please take some time to review this important information with your child on how to wear a mask. Please remind your child of the importance of wearing masks properly and to not hang it from their neck or ears or take it off when talking to others. A reminder to please send masks (at least 3) for your child, so they have back-ups ready. Please remember to wash cloth masks daily. Students are permitted to wear their mask outside for recess if they prefer.

YRDSB Cyber Safety Week
Welcome to Week 4, the final week of the four (4) week K-12 Cyber Security Awareness Month (CSAM) campaign, running from October 26 to November 20.
Week 4: Be Smart and Safe Online
Focus on understanding the risks to student well-being.
This week we will look into the following:
• Online gaming
• Social media
This week also corresponds to Ontario’s “Bullying Awareness and Prevention Week” which is an opportunity for the school community to raise awareness about bullying and cyberbullying and work together on prevention. We encourage you to learn more about this separate awareness campaign.
Helping students know the risks of the Internet and be safe online is a concern for many parents and teachers. With online interests of young people always changing it is difficult to be proactive in helping kids stay safe while online. The following guide on Tweens and Teens in the digital world can help provide some good insight into the risks and actions that can be taken to keep kids safe.
