ODSS Flag at half-mast for National Day of Mourning

Every year on April 28 we pay our respects to, and remember, the thousands of workers who have been killed, injured or suffered illness as a result of work-related incidents.

We also honour the many families and friends who have been deeply affected by these tragedies.

Every worker has the right to return home safe and sound at the end of each work day.

By working together – with employers, workers and our health and safety partners – we can prevent worker injuries and deaths before they occur.

Student Accident Insurance

Parents or guardians are responsible for expenses related to student injuries on school premises during school activities.  Accidents can and do happen and the costs involved might not be fully covered by Provincial Health Care or employer group insurance plans.

The Upper Grand District School Board is empowered under the Education Act to offer Accident and Life Insurance for students.

Information has been sent home with respect to Student Accident Insurance offered by the Old Republic Insurance Company of Canada (“Old Republic”).  You should receive the Director’s letter, an Acknowledgment to be signed by parents (and returned to school) and a Student Accident Insurance Application form (to be mailed directly to Old Republic).  Old Republic offers a variety of options, including family rates and multi-year plans, at affordable prices.  The cost must be paid by parents or guardian.

Subscription is directly through Old Republic by mail or on line.  Questions should be directed to Old Republic at 1-800-463-5437 or

For today’s active children, especially those who participate in field trips, co-curricular and other school activities outside the school day, Student Accident Insurance is valuable.

Ryan's Law Notice

May 25, 2015

Dear Parent/Guardian:

As you may be aware, the Ontario Legislature recently passed Ryan’s Law, 2015. This piece of legislation is an important step to support the well being of students with asthma in Ontario schools.

Over the course of the next school year, the Upper Grand DSB will be working to implement the requirements of this legislation.

If your child has asthma, we ask that you immediately contact the main office so that we can identify all students who take asthma medication. Your child is allowed to carry this medication. Children under the age of 16 years need parental permission.

The Ministry of Education website has resources on asthma that can be found at:

As a best practice and to support your child, please let the school know if your child has a medical condition so that the school is aware and can keep this information on file.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me directly.


Bill Lenny, Acting Principal
