Hello Woodland Families,

Stay safe and well!

JUNE IS PRIDE MONTH

The District School Board of Niagara recognizes that providing students with an opportunity to learn and develop in a safe, caring and respectful society is a shared responsibility in which the Board and schools play an important role. As a system, we are committed to raising our equity consciousness and fostering a school culture that is respectful of diversity, and one that prioritizes inclusive practices. As we move forward in our commitment to action equity and inclusion, we will respect the dignities of our students and their experiences.

We are proud to announce that the District School Board of Niagara will be raising Pride flags during June Pride Month at the Education Centre and in a prominent location at each of our school sites. While our schools and workplaces are closed, our commitment to supporting each and every one of our students and staff remains fundamental.

This global pandemic has impacted everyone, but not equally. It has highlighted, and oftentimes exacerbated, the inequities that already marginalized groups experience. This is especially true for the LGBTQ+ community, which has been historically marginalized, and for whom our current situation of social distancing and health disparities only further creates a real sense of exclusion and isolation.

Representation and visibility are critically important and, now more than ever, June is a time to celebrate sexual and gender diversity. We will continue to honour our commitment to all our staff and students this June.

 

From Monday, May 31 until end of day Tuesday, June 8, flags at DSBN schools will be lowered to half-mast to honour the lives of the 215 Indigenous children discovered in a mass grave at the former Kamloops Residential School.

Schools will raise their Pride Flags starting Wednesday, June 9, and will fly them until end of day June 30. Because the Education Centre has three flag poles, the Pride Flag will be raised on June 1, and lowered to half mast along with the National Flag of Canada.

 

Introducing the DSBN Well-Being Flag!


The DSBN’s first-ever Well-Being Flag is on display in our atrium! Designed by a
DSBN student, the Well-Being Flag is a tangible symbol of student voice, leadership, inclusivity,
kindness, acceptance, diversity, bias-free environments, respect, positive engagement, and
upstandership.
The Well-Being Flag will be on display at Woodland to show our support for
inclusive school environments, where everyone should feel safe and respected. We hope that
DSBN students and community members see themselves represented in the Well-Being Flag,
and interpret it in their own personal way.

 

Keeping our School Safe and Healthy

If you have a child with a Prevalent Medical Condition (Anaphylaxis, Asthma, Diabetes, and/or Epilepsy) we want to make sure we have a current Plan of Care to support your child.  

The Plan of Care form is a new document that replaces the Emergency Action Plan. All parents of children with Prevalent Medical Conditions are asked to fill out the new Plan of Care and submit to the school.

You can download the forms here dsbn.org/prevalent-medical-conditions.

For more information, please contact the school.

 

Scent Aware-Reduced Environment:

Woodland is a Scent-Reduced Environment: some staff and students have a sensitivity to odours, smells, and scents. Please do not wear, or send your child with, perfume, cologne, after shave, or scented body lotion into the school.

 

Be Nut Aware!

When you are packing your child’s lunch, please remember that we strive to be a nut-free environment. Members of our school community have nut allergies so it is important that we all work to ensure their safety.

Thank you!
