Career Exploration Day - SEEKING PARENT VOLUNTEERS!!

Wednesday, April 10, 2019 - 9:00 am - 12:15 pm

Dear Parent or Guardian,

During Education Week scheduled for April, we are hosting a CAREER EXPLORATION DAY at our school.  This exposes our students to people working in a variety of different jobs and professions.  Prior to that date, students will be identifying skills, interests and values that may help to link them to suitable career pathways.  Then, at the Career Exploration, they can obtain information from a person(s) in one or several of their fields of interest, or explore areas they had never even considered.

We are asking interested parents, grandparents, siblings, guardians, or neighbours of the family to volunteer to be one of the dynamic speakers at our Career Exploration.  We are looking for diversity in job types and levels and that all occupational sectors be represented including: Health, Human and Public Services, Engineering, Industrial, and Scientific Technology, Business and Marketing, and Communication and the Arts.  All jobs are a possibility.

If you think you might be interested and are available April 10 all morning to come to speak to small groups, please email (lori.ford@peelsb.com) or phone (905-857-9144 ext.407) the below information to Mrs. Ford as soon as possible.  Once your confirmation has been received, you will be contacted by email or phone with some guidelines for the talk and details for the day.  Lunch will be provided at the school.  This is always a day students and speakers enjoy and remember!

Thank you in advance for you continued support of your child’s education.

Yours truly,

 
Lori Ford
Guidance Counselor

Annual Water Testing at Allan Drive MS

Annual Water Testing at Allan Drive MS

​Dear Parent/Guardian:

Since 2007, the Ontario government has required schools to annually test their drinking water to ensure lead levels meet the provincial drinking water quality standard. Following a regular test of our school's water sources, an exceedence of lead was found in at least one of our drinking water/food preparation sources.

 

As soon as we were made aware, corrective actions were taken immediately to ensure the health and safety of all students and staff. These actions, as directed by Peel Public Health, may have included re-testing, fixture or plumbing replacement/removal or more frequent flushing of the water source(s). If necessary, our school made alternate arrangements to ensure staff and students had access to another water source.

 

I want to assure you that the Peel District School Board has followed all the necessary reporting requirements and has taken all the corrective actions as directed by the local Medical Officer of Health to resolve any lead exceedences. A copy of our test results is available in our school office. More information is also available on the Ministry of Environment website at www.ontario.ca/drinkingwater.

 

I want to make sure that you have all the information, because the health and safety of students at our school is my top priority. If you have any questions or concerns, please call the school at 905-857-9144.  As always, if you have any concerns regarding your child's health, please contact your family physician directly.

 

Sincerely,

 

Felicia Hiscock

Principal

Allan Drive MS
