Vulnerable Sector Check All volunteers and community members working within schools in the Upper Canada District School Board are required to have a Vulnerable Sector Check on file at the school before they begin interacting with students. The checks are valid for two years from the date of issue. The forms are available through the school office. You must present photo ID to the police. We appreciate your cooperation in helping to keep our children safe. Please Note! All visitors entering the school MUST come to the office and sign in before proceeding within the school.
ur Veterans are ordinary men and women who did extraordinary things to protect our freedom and build a safer world in which to live. During this month and in particular, during Veteran’s Week, we stop and remember all that we have because of these ordinary men and women. There are many ways you can show that you remember and honour our Canadian Veterans: by wearing a poppy, visiting a veteran, or a War Memorial. Staff and students are preparing for our own Remembrance Day Service, which will take place at 10:00 a.m. in the gym on Monday, November 11th. All are welcome. As November continues to lead us into snow and slush season, please remember to send extra mittens, and to dress your child in layers for the unsettled weather. The UCDSB main website (www.ucdsb.on.ca) has a link to the bus cancellation screen. Bus cancellations are also announced on the local radio stations. More information is also contained in this newsletter. Mr. Gow from PDCI is scheduled to attend our next Parent Council meeting to speak about the transition plan of our Grades 6-8. Again, all are welcomed. See the calendar for details as to date and time! Our Parent Council have also arranged through Open Doors, two evening workshop sessions for our Family of Schools. The first is November 20th and deals with Resiliency; the second is November 27th and we will be exploring Separation/Divorce and Children. Sessions will be held at The Stewart School, and are open to the public; we encourage people to attend. Our New To You Book Sale has a twist this year. On the Wednesday night, we have 10 (ten!) vendors attending. Why not come out, pick up a book to relax with, have a girls night out and do a little early Christmas shopping, all under one roof? Finally, a huge thank you to all parents, staff, students and community members who had a hand in making this year’s Hallowe’en Fun Night another great event for our community. Special thanks to Lori Clyne for the loan of those fabulous ghouls—I heard (very loudly throughout the evening) that the Haunted House was once again, a huge success. Many thanks as well to our Parent Council coordinators, workers and our Grade 9 volunteers (all former DCS students) who came to help run the games. It is always an entertaining evening. Together we make our community strong. Together we make our community our home.

Mental Health Workshops
Resilience Wednesday, November 20th, 2013—6:30 p.m. The Stewart School Mental Health research increasingly is showing us that a child’s ability to “bounce back” from difficulties is a very important factor in their future mental well-being. We also know that this “resilience” is not something that everyone is born with, but it is something that everyone can learn. Come out to this workshop presented by Open Doors and Public Health to learn about how to help you child (and perhaps yourself) be better able to rebound from life’s challenges. Separation & Divorce Wednesday, November 27th—6:30 p.m. The Stewart School Separation or Divorce has a very real and very large impact on parents and kids, since it is one of life’s biggest stresses. Come out to this workshop to learn about what “normal” child reactions are to separation and divorce, and what you can do as a parent to help your child cope in a healthier way with the stress of separation.

Dear Parent/Guardian, The Upper Canada District School Board is committed to providing safe learning environments for all students, staff, school visitors and community members. When students behave inappropriately, principals use progressive discipline to help them take responsibility for their actions, change their behaviour, and learn from their mistakes. When student behaviour poses a potential threat to safety or causes serious harm, the Community Violence Threat Risk Assessment Protocol (VTRA) helps principals take further steps to protect the well-being of our students. The protocol helps schools respond quickly to threatening incidents such as: possession of a weapon or replica weapon, bomb threat or plan, verbal, written or electronic (internet, text) threats to kill or injure oneself or others, or other threats of violence, fire setting. The Community VTRA outlines how a school responds immediately to threatening behaviour. Principals may first bring together a School Threat Assessment Team, which includes the principal/vice-principal, the designated regional lead, and police. If the situation is serious, the principal may also consult with the Superintendent responsible for the school, and call in the Community Threat Assessment Team. This community team also includes representatives of community agencies who work with us to keep our schools safe, such as local police and children's mental health organizations. Parents and guardians will be notified if their child will be discussed through the Community Threat Assessment Protocol. If a parent/guardian cannot be reached, or if they choose not to provide consent, but a concern for safety still exists due to threatening behaviour, the threat assessment may still proceed. Personal information shared throughout this process will respect and balance each individual’s right to privacy with the need to ensure the safety of all. As always, student safety is our first priority. If you have any questions regarding the Upper Canada District School Board Community Violence Threat Risk Assessment Protocol, please contact your Superintendent of Safe Schools: David Coombs at 613-258-9393 (ext. 2501) or toll free at 1-888-402-3522 ext. 2501 or Valerie Allen at 613-933-5256 (ext. 4216) or toll free at 1-888-779-2559 ext. 4216 SAVE: Lid on all these products
