Posted June 19, 2020

Today is Friday, June 19th, 2020.  Bonjour, aujourd’hui c’est vendredi, le 19 juin, 2020.  Hooray for the weekend!  Although I know some people might have felt that we’ve had a giant weekend that started at March Break, I know there are others looking forward to a couple of days off.

Important Letter for Students, Parents, and Guardians

Dear Parents, Guardians and Caregivers

The Upper Grand District School Board is committed to disrupting and addressing  systemic racism and oppression in all of its forms.  We are committed to making  sure the work we do is fully transparent and accountable to all Upper Grand students, staff, families, and stakeholders.

If you are a racialized student or the parent, guardian or caregiver of a racialized student or student living in the margins, please take a moment to complete this survey by June 24th or attend the google meet (poster here) on June 24th  at 2:00.

As an educational community we have a responsibility to identify and describe racism and then work to dismantle it. We need to hear from you. Thank you.
