South Park Family School – A Healthy, Safe and Caring place for everyone
Safety is a top priority for each and every member of our community. Students need to have healthy minds and bodies to be ready to learn and explore.
Allergy Awareness: We have students and staff with severe allergies. Fish, nuts and kiwis are the greatest concern. We also have a number of families who are gluten intolerant. When preparing lunches, we strongly encourage the use of alternatives to peanut or nut butters, and ask you to consider not sending raw nuts, fish or kiwi in lunches. Please also consider allergies when sending in treats to share for birthdays or other events such as bake sales.
*For classrooms with severe allergy concerns, students with allergens in their lunch may be asked to eat at a specific table / desk. Our supervisors and custodians will have specific cleaning tasks for these rooms and furniture to try to reduce exposure and risk.
Hand Washing: VIHA information
Feeling safe and included: Emotions are the ‘gatekeepers’ to learning. We want every child to feel safe and included at South Park. In classrooms and assemblies, we spend time discussing and teaching lessons to focus on social and emotional development. We also use Restitution as a problem-solving model when students make mistakes. Home-school partnership and regular communication are critical to ensuring all students feel safe and included.
*Please see the South Park Family School Code of Conduct for more detailed information.
Thank you for your support and effort to make South Park a healthy, safe and caring place for everyone!
