Welcome to Oakwood Public School! My name is Mr. Vince Cundari and I am thrilled to be Principal of this great school. Oakwood is an active and caring place with a strong sense of community and a relentless focus on literacy. We will continue to work diligently every day and have a lot of fun together. The staff is fantastic, parents are supportive, volunteers are dedicated, and the kids are wonderful. Where else would you rather be!!  If you would like more information or wish to discuss concerns about your child, please give me a call at the school at 905-845-0412.

Fair Notice to Parents/Guardians

 

Date: September 2014

 

Dear Parents/Guardians:

 

Re: Fair Notice

 

The safety of our children is a top priority for everyone. This letter is to inform you that

we have participated in the development of a region wide Violence Threat Risk

Assessment Protocol along with our community partners, for responding to situations in

which students may pose a threat to themselves or others. These situations may involve

weapons, or threats to harm (communicated personally or via electronic media) or

assaults as outlined in the Halton District School Board’s Code of Conduct.

 

The purpose of the assessment is to determine how best to support the student so their

behaviour does not become violent or self-injurious. Please note that other community

partners such as, the Halton Regional Police Service, or other community youth

agencies may become involved in the Violence Threat Risk Assessment (V.T.R.A)

because it is critical to have as much information available as possible in order to

provide the most appropriate support to your child.

 

We will respond to all threats in a professional manner in order to provide a healthy and

caring learning environment. Additionally, we will be educating students so they know

that threat making behaviours are not acceptable as well as teaching youth about school

safety.

 

The Halton District School Board is proud to be able to provide this level of support to

our students and is most fortunate to have our community partners working with us.

 

Sincerely,

 

Yaw Obeng

Superintendent of Education
