Letter to families regarding 13 Reasons Why Season 2

Letter to families regarding 13 Reasons Why Season 2

Dear Peel District School Board Families:

As you may be aware, season 2 of Netflix’s 13 Reasons Why, is scheduled to be released on May 18, 2018. ​Series like this one can lead to misconceptions and misinformation about suicide, and possibly to the glorification of suicide and suicide contagion. For these reasons, mental health professionals across North America, including the Peel District School Board's mental health team, feel it is necessary to make you aware of this series and content.

Changes coming to elementary SafeArrival system on May 14, 2018

Changes coming to elementary SafeArrival system on May 14, 2018

As you know, the Peel District School Board implemented SafeArrival, an automated absence reporting system for all students in its elementary schools in September 2016. Recently, the service provider for our system was sold to a new company and so, beginning May 14, 2018, there will be some slight changes on how you will report your child's absence from school.
