Resources to support families impacted by today's tragedy in Florida

​Dear Peel District School Board Families,

We are saddened by the tragedy that took place in a Florida high school this afternoon. Our thoughts are with all those affected. Although events like these are rare, we recognize the impact they can have on each of us—our children, staff, families and friends. Individuals react to situations like this in various ways. We may feel sadness, grief, helplessness, anxiety and anger. Whatever you feel is okay.

The Peel District School Board's social work team has prepared some tips to help you support your children and family at this time. Click full story to view the tips.  ​

Coming soon: online parent portal where you can access important student information
