Winter Water Safety

The safety and well-being of our students and families is always our greatest priority, and we work closely with our partners to share important information to help keep our community safe.

As the province-wide lockdown continues and families are exploring ways to stay active outdoors, the risk of water-related incidents are increasing.

Conservation Halton and the four municipalities in Halton have issued some important reminders and water safety tips to help keep our families safe during the winter months. 

Some of these measure include: 

  • Keep family members and pets away from all bodies of water. 
  • Don’t follow pets or people on the ice or attempt to rescue – call 911 for assistance. 
  • Avoid recreational activities in or around waterways and check with your local municipality for alternative outdoor skating opportunities. 
  • Recreation of any kind is not permitted on stormwater management ponds. These areas can be very dangerous and should be avoided at all times. 

Please take a few minutes to share these important reminders with your children. For more information, please read the joint News Release.
