DAYLIGHT SAVING TIME
Daylight Saving Time starts on Sunday, March 12 at 2:00 a.m. Clocks are turned forward one hour.
A few weeks ago we were informed of a documentary by CBC Marketplace. The media investigation about non-sanctioned activities was shared at the last School Council meeting. It was recommended that the documentary post be shared with parents who may not have seen the program when it first aired.
Please note that the documentary contains highly graphic and offensive language and behavior.
NON SANCTIONED EVENTS
Periodically the school is informed of student activities that are not sanctioned by either the school or the Board. The most common activities are ‘semi-formals’ at downtown clubs, March Break trips andski trips to Mt. Tremblant over the Family Day weekend.
In recent years March Break trips have been to the Dominican Republic. Please note that these non-sanctioned activities are not supervised by Board staff.
A couple of years ago a Leaside student who participated in one of the non-sanctioned trips had suffered an injury and was hospitalized. None of the tour operators’ representatives or supervisors contacted the parents. The Operators claimed no responsibility since they employed temporary staff. Hotel property was damaged and affected other patrons who were at the same venue with their families.
In the event that the school or the Board organizes events, parents are informed of these events through the weekly bulletin and out of country trips would require parental permission forms. Overnight trips that are organized by the school require the approval of the Superintendent and would include parent meetings with the staff supervisors prior to the trip.
If in doubt, please contact the school to clarify whether activities are school sanctioned.
