Thanks to all our staff and community volunteers that make these opportunities possible! 
School Safety Information Safety Information <p>​​</p><p>Student Safety is Always our First Priority!</p><p>We pride ourselves at Hyde Park as having the most awesome students ever, however, sometimes students are on their way to learning how to behave in a more socially acceptable manner.  We all make mistakes, and learning from our mistakes is key to our success.  At Hyde Park, we have a team of staff members who are well trained in responding to student behaviour that escalates to a point of putting others at risk.  When this happens in our building, classroom teachers will be asked, via our Public Announcement system to ensure classroom doors are closed and locked. Students would continue learning.  Outside the classroom, our BMS team (behaviour management systems team) will be called to assist this student in calming.  In extreme cases, when student behaviour escalates to the point of harming others or self, this team is trained to safely contain the student.  Sometimes other students may witness this.  They are later debriefed back in classrooms so that they can better understand the nature of this type of staff response.  To preserve the dignity and privacy of students and families, we will NOT be sending notification home each time this occurs (it is extremely rare).  We know our community is compassionate and understanding of this.   ​</p>

School Climate SurveySchool Climate Survey<p>​Dear Parent/Guardian,</p><p style="text-align:left;">One of the goals in the Simcoe County District School Board improvement plan is to provide a safe, supportive learning environment that supports all students in being successful. In January, <em>all students in grades 4 to 8</em> will be asked to complete an anonymous, on-line survey at school about how they feel about their school. Your child's teacher will supervise the class during the survey and can answer any questions or concerns your child may have.</p><p style="text-align:left;">This year, <em>parents/guardians of students in grades 4 to 8</em> will also be asked to complete an anonymous on-line survey about how they feel about their child's school.</p><p style="text-align:left;">These surveys provide students, parent/guardians and staff with the opportunity to say what is great about their school, as well as express their concerns. The survey results will provide valuable feedback to staff and will help schools to develop their Safe Schools Plans.</p><p style="text-align:left;">Students, parents/guardians and staff will <span lang="EN-US" style="text-decoration:underline;">not</span> be asked to provide their names and all responses will be combined to ensure confidentiality.</p><p style="text-align:left;">Questions on the surveys cover a range of topics, such as:</p><ul style="text-align:left;"><li>the overall tone of the school, often referred to as school climate;</li><li>perceptions of peers in terms of the Board's 10 Character traits;</li><li>involvement in extracurricular activities and academic achievement; </li><li>experiences of school safety and bullying;</li><li>equity and inclusion practices within the school;</li><li>school responses to instances of student wrongdoing; and</li><li>3 questions to assist the Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit in their Healthy Schools Initiative.</li></ul><p style="text-align:left;"><strong>Student Survey</strong></p><p style="text-align:left;">Should you wish to review the<em> student survey</em>, a sample version is available here <a href=""></a>.  A paper copy of the <em>student survey</em> is also available at the school office. Please call the school if you have questions about how the <em>student survey</em> will be implemented in your child's school.</p><p style="text-align:left;"><strong>Parent/Guardian Survey</strong></p><p style="text-align:left;">To complete the <em>parent/guardian survey</em>, please go to the Simcoe County District School Board (SCDSB) website (<a href=""></a>) and click the link to the parent/guardian School Climate survey. The <strong>password</strong> for the <em>parent/guardian survey</em> is <strong>ElementaryParent2017</strong>.  If you do not have access to the internet and/or you prefer to complete a paper version of the survey, copies of the <em>parent/guardian survey</em> are available at the school office. Questions about how to access the survey can be directed to SCDSB's Research and Evaluation Services team <a href=""></a></p><p style="text-align:left;">The information that is collected will be used to help guide our school in creating and maintaining safe, supportive learning environments for all students. Thank you for your support.</p><p style="text-align:left;">Sincerely,<br>Kathy Whitley<br>Principal, Hyde Park Public School</p>
