Although throwing snow and ice may be considered just another part of enjoying our Canadian winter, it can pose a danger. This is especially so in a school setting. Snow kicked up at someone, or scooped and packed into snowballs on the school yard may contain sand, rocks, vegetation, rock salt or other hidden foreign objects. There are numerous cases of serious eye and facial injuries from thrown and kicked snow in school settings.
It has been made clear to all students that throwing or kicking snow or ice anywhere on the playground is strictly prohibited. Snow stays on the ground. Students who fail to abide by this rule may face serious consequences including suspension from school.
Please discuss the importance of adhering to this policy and to the consequences of ignoring it with your child.
We appreciate your support to keep your children safe at school.
