​SCDSB Community Apps Portal Makes Volunteering Easyhttp://hur.scdsb.on.ca/about-us/news/school-news/68​SCDSB Community Apps Portal Makes Volunteering Easy<p>We appreciate the commitment of all who volunteer at our school. This school year, we are implementing a new online Volunteer Portal. SCDSB Community Apps is a new online portal that allows you to begin the process for volunteering at a SCDSB school. The portal eliminates much of the paperwork currently associated with volunteers. Volunteer applications and approvals will occur online. The new mandate for Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) training, for volunteers, is also part of the portal.<strong> </strong>The Volunteer Portal is available for all new people requesting to volunteer at a school location: <a href="http://communityapps.scdsb.on.ca/">http://communityapps.scdsb.on.ca</a>. Only new volunteers or those who require an updated Criminal Background Check Vulnerable Sector Screening (CBC-VSS) are able to register on the portal at this time.<br></p>

Procedures Help Keep Our School Safehttp://hur.scdsb.on.ca/about-us/news/school-news/71Procedures Help Keep Our School Safe<p><strong> </strong>The safety and well-being of students is our top priority. We have a number of procedures in place to keep our school safe. You can help your child understand and feel safe by:</p><ul style="list-style-type:disc;"><li>talking to them about the situations below</li><li>reminding them that emergencies are rare</li><li>telling them it's important to follow staff instructions in these situations<br> <br></li></ul><p>Parents should talk about the following emergency drills with their children:</p><ul style="list-style-type:disc;"><li><strong>Shelter in place</strong> is used when there is an environmental or weather-related situation, like a chemical spill outside the building, or a major storm. Activities continue inside the school. Students and staff are not allowed to leave the building. The ventilation system may be shut off.</li><li>A <strong>hold and secure</strong> is used when there is a situation in the community, not related to the school, like a bank robbery nearby. Activities continue, but all exterior doors are locked. No one is allowed to enter or exit the school. </li><li>A <strong>lockdown </strong>is used when there is a major incident or a threat of violence related to the school. Students and staff move to secure areas, away from doors and windows. Interior doors are locked, lights are shut off and blinds are drawn. Students and staff remain quiet. We practice lockdown drills at least two times per year. In the unlikely event of an actual lockdown situation, police ask that parents do not go to the school. Information will be communicated through the school board social media sites (<a href="http://www.facebook.com/SCDSB">www.facebook.com/SCDSB</a> and <a href="http://www.twitter.com/SCDSB_Schools">www.twitter.com/SCDSB_Schools</a>) and website (<a href="http://www.scdsb.on.ca/">www.scdsb.on.ca</a>), through local police and local media. </li><li>All schools have <strong>evacuation plans</strong> in case of gas leaks, bomb threats or fire incidents that would require everyone to leave the school. We hold drills to practice our evacuation plan. In a real evacuation, students and staff may go to the evacuation site, depending on the situation. Parents will be informed about pick-up procedures by the school, school board and local media. </li><li>Elementary school main doors are locked during the school day. Visitors must use the <strong>intercom system</strong> to enter the building. <strong>Staff may not be available to answer the door immediately, please be patient.</strong> All visitors, including school volunteers, are required to <strong>sign in</strong> at the school office and wear <strong>visitor identification</strong>. </li><li>Staff and volunteers must complete a <strong>criminal record check</strong> before having contact with students.  </li><li>We ask parents to contact us when their child will be absent from school as part of our <strong>Safe Arrival </strong>program. When we don't hear from a parent/guardian and a student is absent, we will call home to find out the reason for the absence.</li><li>At least two staff members in every school are trained in <strong>first aid and CPR</strong>. All SCDSB schools <strong>have Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs)</strong>.<br> <br></li></ul><p>When parents are at school during a drill or emergency event, they must follow direction from school staff, police, fire and/or emergency personnel. Parents may not have immediate access to their children during drills or emergencies. They may need to wait until the situation is resolved and school staff and/or emergency personnel release students into parent care.</p><p>It's important for you to know we'll always take whatever precautions are necessary to keep our school and students safe. <br></p><p><br></p>
School Bus 'Bus Tag' Program Helps Students Get To and From School Safelyhttp://hur.scdsb.on.ca/about-us/news/school-news/72School Bus 'Bus Tag' Program Helps Students Get To and From School Safely<p><strong> </strong>The Simcoe County Student Transportation Consortium's Bus Tag program supports safety for JK/SK and other school-identified students. The program helps match students to their assigned afternoon school bus and identifies that they must be met by a parent or guardian at their afternoon bus stop. </p><p>The program provides a colour coded Bus Tag with the assigned p.m. route number to be attached to the student's backpack and a colour coded route card with route number in the windows of the school bus that the Bus Tag is matched to. The program can also provide tags for students who are walkers and/or who remain at an on-site child care centre to make sure they don't get on a bus in error. </p><p>For more information, visit main.simcoecountyschoolbus.ca and click on the 'Safety' tab<br></p><p><br></p>
