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.

 

 

Important changes coming to SafeArrival system in May 2018

Important changes coming to SafeArrival system in May 2018

The Peel District School Board is currently using the SafeArrival system by Synervoice Technologies. As Synervoice has been sold to West Communications, there will be slight changes to our SafeArrival system and how you will report your child's absence from school.  The phone number to report your child's absence will stay the same, but there are a few other changes.

Beginning May 14, 2018, all elementary school parents/guardians need to report their child's full-day absences, late arrivals and/or early departures from school via our new School Messenger SafeArrival system.

The phone number will stay the same:
1-855-209-6155  

Website has changed to: go.schoolmessenger.ca 

Download a new app:  School Messenger App (from Google or Apple)

(please be sure to delete the old Safe Arrival app after May 11) 

Please continue to use our current Synervoice system until Friday, May 11, 2018. The new School Messenger SafeArrival will be live on Monday, May 14, 2018. 

Important to note:

The transition to a new company and system will require parents to set up a new account with School Messenger SafeArrival as data will not be transferred from the old system to the new. More information on how and when to set-up your new account will be coming in the next month.

Mental Health Minute Activity

Mental Health Minute Activity

For Children's Mental Health Week, let's try a Mental Health Minute Activity.

Grateful seeing - Look FIRST for what's good and working for us in life. Ask your child to share one (or two) good things about their day. Make sure you share what's good about your day too!

"We're going for a walk!" -  Exercise relieves anxiety for up to several hours as it burns excess energy, loosens tense muscles and boosts mood. If your child can't take a walk right now, have them run in place, bounce on a yoga ball, jump rope or stretch.

Three hugs, three big breaths -  Hug your child and take 3 deep belly breaths together. Share a smile and move on with your day. This is a quick way to pause, connect and be in the moment together.

Experiment! - Together with your child you might: try a new recipe, write a poem, paint something, or play a new game. Creative expression and well-being are linked.

What is an IEP?

What is an IEP?

Education is full of acronyms and IEP is one of many that a parent/guardian of a child receiving special education support will encounter. 

An IEP is an Individual Education Plan. Developed at the beginning of the school year, it lays out the accommodations and modifications to the regular curriculum that help your child learn and be successful. No formal identification is needed but you, the parent/guardian should be involved in the development as you provide valuable input. It can be overwhelming so there are pamphlets, webpages, and Special Education Advisory Committee (SEAC) representatives who can help you understand and make informed contributions. 

May is Better Speech and Hearing Month. Let's thank the professionals who help our children with their speech and language challenges.

Protect your kids—and your finances

Protect your kids—and your finances

​The Peel District School Board does not  provide accident insurance coverage for student injuries that occur on school property or during school activities including extracurricular sports. Each year, many of our families spend thousands of dollars when their children are injured at school, on field trips, while participating in non-school activities, or at home.  If a student is injured, parent(s)/guardian(s) are responsible for any costs not covered by provincial health care or their employer's health plan.  Please check with your provider regarding your coverage.
