Parent Newsletter: Cannabis Update
Parent Newsletter: Cannabis Update
10/17/2018
The laws around buying, using and possessing recreational cannabis have changed in the province of Ontario. This change in legislation does not have an impact on how we deal with possession, use and distribution of cannabis, alcohol or illegal drugs in our schools. Parents need to know that it remains illegal for anyone under the age of 19 to use or possess recreational cannabis. This is the same as the minimum age for the sale of tobacco and alcohol in Ontario. Regardless of age, cannabis is not allowed on school property or at school-related events at any time. As has always been the case, there will be consequences for students if they are believed to be in possession or under the influence of alcohol, illegal drugs or cannabis. This could include suspensions. Anyone found to be providing (distributing) cannabis to a person on school property will face disciplinary action, which could include expulsion from school and police involvement. We encourage families to be informed about the facts of cannabis legalization and the potential health risks for young people. The following resources will provide some useful information.

That is why all of our schools and board office locations are designated as “scent free.” We know that allergies and sensitivities to scents can have severe health implications and so we must do everything possible to make sure that all students, staff and visitors with scent allergies and sensitivities are safe and fully included.

Parking Lot Safety Notice
Parking Lot Safety Notice
11/06/2017
St. Joe’s is very busy and congested in the mornings before school starts. To ensure the safety of motorists and pedestrians in our parking lot please do not drive into the sjo parking lot 2 or 3 car lengths and then stop to drop off your child. This results in a traffic congestion in the middle of the Cundles/Livingstone intersection at the lights. Parents are requested to drive and proceed all the way to the back of parking lot to drop off their children. This will help keep traffic flowing and ensure a more safe arrival to school. Parents are also reminded especially during these dark mornings that they must yield to pedestrians in sjo parking lot.
