Safer Schools Together

In partnership with The Ministry of Education and Childcare’s erase strategy, due to high demand, Safer Schools Together is offering additional “Social Media Awareness” Family Sessions on March 26th, April 10th and April 16th. All sessions will take place in the evenings via zoom from 6:30 - 7:30 pm (PST). 

The session covers all things digital, from how to be a good digital citizen, the criminal consequences of cyberbullying, and how to report and receive support in cases of sexting/sextortion. Some of the most prominent concerns currently surrounding use of social media platforms, smartphones, and artificial intelligence will be discussed.

Students will learn:

  • Digital media habits, oversharing, and digital addiction
  • The permanence of online posts/activity
  • The significance of your digital tattoo in how others perceive you (e.g., sports teams, college admissions, and potential employers)
  • The importance of caring for peers both online and offline
  • Geo-locational settings and the dangers of social media and cell phone misuse
  • The social and legal consequences of cyberbullying behaviour as well as possession and distribution of intimate images (sexting and sextortion)
  • An anonymous student reporting tool that can help you and your friends stay safe both online and offline

The 60 minute session will be held virtually via zoom. To register for a session please click on the registration link below.

Our School District does not provide accident insurance coverage for student injuries that occur on school property or during school activities including extracurricular sports.

Each year, many families spend thousands of dollars when their children are injured at school, while participating in non-school activities, or at home. If a student is injured, parent(s)/guardian(s) are responsible for any costs not covered by their Government Health Insurance Plan or their employer’s health care plan. Please check with your provider regarding your coverage.

Most accident-related expenses are not fully covered under GHIP and some expenses like ambulance fees, casts, crutches, physiotherapy and emergency dental care are usually not covered at all. This leaves you, the parent/guardian, financially responsible.

To help protect your family, it is recommended that you consider obtaining student accident insurance.  As a convenience to you, the District has made an arrangement to offer student accident insurance through insuremykids®. Participation is voluntary but highly recommended and the costs are to be paid by the parent/guardian. The program is available for students up to age 26.

If you wish to purchase coverage, please do so directly online at www.insuremykids.com or call 1-800-463-5437. The insurance agreement is between You and the insurance underwriter, Old Republic Insurance Company of Canada. For more information, please visit www.insuremykids.com.
