Whatis LD@home?

LD@home is a free resource created by the Learning Disabilities Association of Ontario (LDAO) for parents of children ages K to gr 8 with learning disabilities (LDs). The website, www.LDatHome.ca, provides information, resources, and a supportive environment for parents in Ontario. LD@home works with Ontario school boards to provide parents with information that educators feel is relevant while reaching their goal to ensure that students with LDs are successful, both in school and for the rest of their lives. For more details, please visit their website.

**IMPORTANT SAFETY REMINDERS FOR STUDENTS

One of the most exciting things about the weather warming up is all the opportunity children have to enjoy outdoor activities such as sports, games and time with friends. With children spending more time outdoors, we would like to remind all students about the importance of staying safe.

 

To help ensure the safety of all children, we regularly review our safety guidelines with students. We recommend that, when you have an opportunity, that parents/guardians also discuss these guidelines with children at home.

 

  • Don’t talk to strangers
  • Always walk to and from school with a buddy.
  • Do not take short cuts through alleys, parks, fields, etc. even if they are well lit
  • Let someone know where you are and where you are going
  • If you suspect someone is following you, RUN! Go to the nearest safe place
  • If someone makes you feel uncomfortable, go to the nearest safe place
  • Walk confidently and be aware of your surroundings
  • Never, ever get into a stranger’s vehicle
  •  
  • We appreciate your help! By working together, we can help students enjoy their time outdoors safely and responsibly.
