School Council Fundraiser: Fresh From the Farm

It’s almost Harvest time in Ontario! Would you like some fresh vegetables and/or apples from Ontario to feed those growing minds and bodies? This year, we are partnering with Fresh from the Farm offering tasty Ontario grown food that both supports Ontario farmers and our school. Check out this flyer for more details.

Orders can be placed on School Cash Online until Thursday Oct 6th.Fresh from the Farm will give us a delivery date between Nov 7th and Dec 8th. Communication of this date will be sent out as soon as we have it. Thank you for supporting our school and Ontario's farmers.

Coyotes

As you may already be aware, we coexist with Coyotes in the Pineland area. The creek and forest areas are great places for coyotes to live among urban sprawl. Some years, they will come out more than others. This summer there have been unprovoked coyote attacks in Burlington. If a coyote is seen outside during the school day, staff will notify the office immediately. During recess, the office will ring the bell to indicate that students and staff are to enter the school building immediately. Whistles have also been ordered for all staff.

We have had a couple of sightings by neighbours in our community at Pineland this summer therefore it is essential for you to have conversations with your child about how to handle themselves if they see a coyote, as well as tips to ensure coyotes do not become domesticated. Please see this link for more information on tips for kids and to report Coyote sightings to the Halton region. There is a lot of information in the link, but in a nutshell, here is "What to Do If a Coyote Approaches": Coyote sightings are commonplace. If you see a coyote, keep your distance and the animal will most likely avoid you. If you encounter an aggressive coyote:

  • Shout loudly and wave your arms high in the air making yourself look as big as possible

  • Use hazing techniques: Air horns, whistles, etc

  • Back away slowly while remaining calm. Never run or turn your back on a coyote.

  • Never feed coyotes

Learning Models for 2022-2023 school year

All Ontario school boards will provide the option for students to learn in-person or remotely/virtually in the 2022-2023 school year. While we encourage all students to plan to attend school in person, we are writing to provide information for students who would like to register for the Remote Learning Model for the 2022-2023 school year.

All HDSB students have been registered at their home school (in-person) for the 2022-2023 school year, including students currently in remote (virtual) schools. If your child will be attending school in person, there is no further action required. If your child requires the Remote Learning Model for the 2022-2023 school year, complete the Remote Learning Registration Form by Sunday, April 3.


For information about the HDSB Learning Models for the 2022-2023 school year, and to access the Remote Learning Registration Form, visit the Learning Models 2022-2023 School Year on the HDSB website.


If you have questions or concerns, please contact the main office at the school.


From The Welcome Centre - New Student Registrations for 2022-2023


It's that time of the year when queries about student registrations will start filling your inbox! Please use this online tool if you or your office team is unsure about where a student registration should occur (i.e. at the home school or at the Welcome Centre). Please also consider adding this online tool (call it "Where Do I Register") to your school website as many families' first stop at your school is virtual!

Calling all three-year olds! Starting school is a big step for children and parents/guardians, and the HDSB wants to make that transition as smooth as possible. This fall, the HDSB is welcoming future students and their families to a virtual Kindergarten experience at kindergarten.hdsb.ca to learn more about making the first school experience a happy one.

At kindergarten.hdsb.ca:

  • Three-year olds can explore a Kindergarten classroom to see what their future classroom might look like next September.

  • Registration for Kindergarten begins in January 2022 and will be by appointment only (in-person and/or virtual) through the school your child will attend. Further information will be shared in the new year. To begin Kindergarten in September 2022, children must be four years old by Dec. 31, 2022 for Year 1 Kindergarten and must be five years old by Dec. 31, 2022 for Year 2 Kindergarten.

  • Parents/guardians can learn about the Kindergarten program at the HDSB, play-based learning, community resources in Halton and before-and-after school care.

  • Families can sign-up to receive a welcome package from the HDSB including a free children’s book.


  • Have Your Say Survey

  • The HDSB engagement survey Have Your Say is available from March 28 - April 21, 2022. Students are asked to complete the survey during school time and we invite parents/guardians to complete the parent/guardian survey when you have time.


  • Your feedback and support is integral to the success of students. Your participation in the Have Your Say survey will help us identify opportunities to improve schools and ensure student achievement and well-being are at the centre of everything we do.


  • Visit haveyoursay.hdsb.ca to take the survey now.


  • The survey will take approximately 10-15 minutes to complete. The parent/guardian survey is available in seven additional languages (Arabic, French, Hindi, Punjabi, Simplified Chinese, Spanish and Urdu) and is completely anonymous, with individual responses grouped together for analysis.

  • The HDSB is committed to sharing the results of this engagement survey with the community. A summary of what we hear from parents/guardians, students and staff will be shared by Fall 2022.


  • Thank you for participating in this survey to provide us with information to support school and system improvement planning.


  • Additional information including Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) can be found at haveyoursay.hdsb.ca/faqs. If you have questions about the survey, please email haveyoursay@hdsb.ca.
