Parents and guardians are responsible for expenses related to student injuries on school premises or 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.
Elementary Registration Day is happening August 29, 2023, between 1:00-4:00 p.m., at all Upper Grand District School Board elementary schools. Only new students to the UGDSB are required to register for the 2023-24 school year. If your child attended a UGDSB school last year, you do not need to re-register.
At the June 13, 2023, UGDSB Board meeting, the following policy items were approved. All updates have been made on the board website (www.ugdsb.on.ca/board/policy).
This policy states that the Upper Grand District School Board acknowledges that Indigenous Peoples are distinct from other equity seeking groups in that they are self-determining nations with inherent rights, laws, and institutions. Indigenous rights are distinct. It is the goal of the UGDSB to ensure that Indigenous staff and students are not deprived of their rights, and are provided with a learning and working environment that is free from racism and discrimination of any kind.
The 2019-2020 school year begins on September 3, which means it is almost time to register your child if you are new to the Upper Grand District School Board.
