We are deeply saddened to learn of the recent deadly attacks and ongoing violence in the Middle East. Our thoughts are with all those impacted and mourning the loss of life during the conflict over the past weekend. We acknowledge this is a particularly devastating time for UGDSB students, staff and families who are connected to the region. These students and communities need our support, understanding, compassion, and care. These events may cause a variety of reactions, emotions and responses among staff, students, and families. To support staff in responding to questions and/or engaging in dialogue with students, we are providing resources for schools to ensure safe, inclusive learning and working environments.
