Bullying Reporting Process for Students:

 On November 18, 2013, the Halton District School Board will launching its new online reporting tool for students to report bullying behaviours.  This reporting tool will allow students to confidentially report incidents of bullying behaviours directly to the principal and vice principal. Students are still encouraged to talk to an administrator or a trusting adult at school to report incidents of bullying and not feel this is the only method of reporting available to them.
 The reporting tool was developed with input from several stakeholder groups including student focus groups, members of the Safe Schools Advisory team and administrators, in addition to consultation with other school boards who have developed similar reporting tools.  The tool will be live on individual school websites on Monday, Nov. 18, which coincides with Bullying Awareness and Prevention Week Nov. 18-22, 2013.
Students may access the reporting tool from a computer or mobile device through your school website by clicking on this icon, 24102013_24936_0.jpg. This will link to an online form they will complete. Once submitted, the form is sent directly to the principal/vice principal’s inbox. The principal will then investigate and respond to the incident to ensure students feel safe and receive the most appropriate support.



Registration for the "W.I. Dick takes over Ottawa" year end grade 8 trip is still open. Parents are encouraged to register their son or daughter online at the EF Tours website prior to October 30. All students have received the registration package outlining where to go online to do so. If you have any questions please contact Mr. Albrecht at 905-878-8119.
