School Safety Information http://hyd.scdsb.on.ca/about-us/news/school-news/43School 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>
Indigo Adopt a Schoolhttp://hyd.scdsb.on.ca/about-us/news/school-news/37Indigo Adopt a School<p></p><p style="text-align:center;"><img src="/PublishingImages/Lists/LocalNews/AllItems/AdoptASchool.jpg" alt="AdoptASchool.jpg" style="margin:5px;" /> </p><p style="text-align:left;">Dear Parents, </p><p style="text-align:justify;">I would like to personally invite you to join me and our literacy team in making a difference in the lives of our children here at Hyde Park Public School by supporting us in the upcoming Indigo Adopt a School program. </p><p style="text-align:justify;">Although we are fortunate enough to have an amazing library space in our new school, this library does not come filled with books.  We continue to slowly purchase books as our budget allows but how exciting that we can infuse a large number of new books into circulation through this phenomenal program with Indigo.</p><p style="text-align:justify;">There are two ways that our community can support our school online at adoptaschool.indigo.ca. Through <em>Book Bonus</em> or <em>Tell a Story, Give a Story</em>, the Foundation is matching your support up to 50 additional books for every participating school! This means, if you give 2 books to our school, the Foundation will add an extra book to your donation, up to 40 books! Or if you, Tell a Story, Give a Story for FREE the Foundation will match an additional book for each featured story, up to 10 books! That's 50 extra books that could be added to our library! </p><p style="text-align:justify;">Through the Indigo Adopt a School program all fund raised go directly to the school and all participating schools receive a 30% discount off books when they shop at Indigo, Chapters and Coles. </p><p style="text-align:justify;">As you know our current annual library budget is approximately $4000, which is $7 per student. Using the funds received through the program we are hoping to be able to purchase many more books than our budget allows to support the passion for literacy at our school.  </p><p style="text-align:justify;">Please let me know if you have any questions and please visit adoptaschool.indigo.ca from September 18 to October 9, 2016 to show your support for our library! I look forward to surprising the staff and children at Hyde Park Public School with all the new library books this year!  </p><p style="text-align:justify;">Sincerely,</p><p style="text-align:justify;">Kathy Whitley, Principal</p><p>​</p>
