Reminder about sledding safety at school about sledding safety at school <p>​</p><p> </p><p><br><br>Student safety is our first priority, and although we do allow "crazy carpets" and soft sleds at our school, we do not allow hard sleds, two-person sleds or snow racers. We do supervise sledding and we remind students of safety rules on a regular basis. </p><p>We want to inform parents that if students are sledding at school, Ophea (the Ontario Physical and Health Education Association) recommends that they should wear a properly fitted (as per manufacturer's guidelines) and properly worn CSA-approved hockey helmet or snow sport helmet certified by a recognized safety standards association. If you send a sled and helmet (optional) for use during nutrition break/recess, you are giving permission for your child to take part in this activity. </p><p>Please note that we have a class set of crazy carpets that may be used for Daily Physical Activity (DPA) or physical education classes. If you have any questions, please contact the school.<br> <br></p><p><br></p>
Parents invited to information sessions about special education invited to information sessions about special education<p>​</p><p><br><strong> </strong>The SCDSB is hosting a series of information sessions for parents and guardians to learn about special education in the SCDSB, and how to support students with special education needs. Topics include accessing community supports, building a plan for the summer, understanding the Special Equipment Amount (SEA) and applied behaviour analysis (ABA). </p><p>Sessions will take place at the SCDSB Education Centre, located at 1170 Highway 26 in Midhurst. Participants may also access the sessions online via Google Meet. More information, including dates, times and links to register, can be found at <a href=""></a><br></p><p><br></p>
​School playgrounds are closed for the winter​School playgrounds are closed for the winter<p><strong><span style="font-size:10pt;line-height:115%;font-family:arial, sans-serif;"><br> </span></strong><span style="font-size:10pt;line-height:115%;font-family:arial, sans-serif;">Every winter, school playground structures are closed. Students are made aware of this during school hours through announcements and staff reminders during breaks. This may not be well known throughout the community despite signs indicating that playground structures are a winter hazard and are closed. The Canadian Standards Association Regulations make recommendations for the depth of ground cover required to minimize injuries (e.g. sand, pea gravel or wood chips). These surfaces cannot be maintained when the ground freezes. Injuries from falling would be more significant on frozen ground. We strongly recommend that you do not allow your children to play on any structures while the ground is frozen.</span><br></p>
Stay healthy during the holidays healthy during the holidays<p>​</p><p><br> The holidays are a time when routines often get thrown out the window, including the time we spend being active and eating healthy. Exercise is a great way to manage the stress and anxiety we often experience during this busy, festive season. Here are some easy tips to stay healthy over the holidays:</p><p> </p><ul style="list-style-type:disc;"><li><strong>Plan ahead</strong> – Just like writing down all the parties and family visits you'll be attending over the holidays, make sure to schedule in your workouts as well! Make a plan that works with your holiday schedule and stick to it. Such things as – taking a family walk after your holiday meal, scheduling a workout with a trainer, or recruiting a friend as a walking buddy are great examples of how to fit exercise into your holidays. Remember that even short bursts of exercise are better than none!</li></ul><p> </p><ul style="list-style-type:disc;"><li><strong>Make it a family event </strong>– The whole family can enjoy exercising together during the holidays. Try tobogganing, ice skating, have a family snowball fight or go skiing. You'll not only get moving but you'll be creating memories to cherish.</li></ul><p> </p><ul style="list-style-type:disc;"><li><strong>Practice Relaxation –</strong> The relationship between the mind and the body is so strong. Providing yourself and your kids with a small amount of relaxation or "time-out" every day – even just 15 minutes – can improve your health dramatically. Try taking a yoga class to reduce stress and clear the mind!</li></ul><p><strong> </strong></p><p>The YMCA of Simcoe/Muskoka offers many opportunities to stay healthy this holiday season.
