The month of June is Pride month. Many of our students, staff, parents/guardians and community members identify as members of the Rainbow or 2SLGBTQIA+ community. Flying the Pride flag not only signals that our schools are safe spaces for everyone, it also aligns with our Vision Statement and Guiding Principles of inclusion and student and staff well-being and our new Equity Plan.
Our school district is committed to supporting and celebrating the 2SLGBTQIA+ community throughout the year. During Pride Month specifically, it is the expectation that schools and offices across the UGDSB raise the Pride Flag to show our support and acceptance and to celebrate the 2SLGBTQIA+ community.
Montgomery Village will fly the PRIDE Flag beginning on June 1st. Flying this symbol aligns with our belief that our school is a safe place for all students and that each member of our community is valued. Should you have more questions about the PRIDE Flag and how it supports our vision, please visit our UGDSB Website at: https://www.ugdsb.ca/
