Violence Threat Risk Assessment Protocol (VTRA)

The Upper Grand District School Board is committed to providing safe learning environments for all students, staff, school visitors, and community members. When a student behaves inappropriately, principals use progressive discipline to help a student take responsibility for their actions, change their behaviour, and learn from their mistakes. When safety is threatened by the potentially violent or dangerous behaviour of a student, which places either the student or others at risk, school staff follow specific protocols for the protection of all. It is important that you and your children are aware of these protocols. For more information, visit the board's website.

Another school year has started. The staff here at Taylor Evans Public School hopes that everyone had a pleasant and relaxing summer. We are looking forward to a rewarding year of learning and hope that you are as well.
If you are new to our school family, we extend a warm welcome and encourage you to become actively involved in the activities that are available. We invite all parents to become involved in the education of your children. School Council welcomes new members, and volunteering in the classroom and/or library is encouraged.
Open and ongoing communication between home and school is very important for student success. I value an “open door” approach and heartily welcome your input and suggestions. Together, we can provide the children with the best education possible....

I hope that everyone is enjoying their final days of summer. Please find below a reference for the first day of school:

  • Staff will meet students outside (back of the school) by the appropriate signs (ie. Grade 3 area) . Once the bell has gone, teachers will call out names and take their new class into the school. There will be many staff outside to help with any questions.
  • Kindergarten students will go directly to their classes.
  • If it rains, students will meet in the gym and organization will take place from there.

Wishing everyone a safe long weekend. See you Tuesday.

The staff at Wellington-Dufferin Student Transportations services will be planning new, efficient routes over the summer. Since transportation is not finalized until late August, information for individual students is not available by phone. Information will be available through the following means:

  • If your child is new to the Ontario school system, has been registered at a school prior to the end of June, and is eligible for transportation under our policies, transportation information will be mailed to your mailing address on August 24, 2015.
  • If you are new to the area, transportation cannot be arranged until your child is registered at a school, and may then take a further two weeks to be finalized. Note that elementary schools are closed over the summer until August 31, 2015. Please ask about transportation when registering your child.
  • If your child is an existing student, go to www.findmyschool.ca and login to this secure site with your child’s OEN number (located on report card), school name and house number. This will not be available until after August 24, 2015.
