SCHOOL CLIMATE SURVEY – YOUR OPINION COUNTS!
- In an ongoing effort to promote safe, inclusive, and accepting schools, we are writing to invite you to complete the School Climate Parent/Guardian Survey.
- About the Parent/Guardian School Climate Survey: School Climate Surveys are conducted every two years to gather information from parents, students, and staff to help us create and sustain safe and welcoming schools. The survey provides feedback to each school about the extent to which parents feel their school supports learning and positive behaviour and promotes a safe and inclusive environment.
Some important notes about the parent survey:
- The survey is completely voluntary.
- You may skip any questions you do not wish to answer.
- The survey is anonymous and confidential. Names will not be collected, and your responses will be securely stored by HCDSB Research and Development Services staff.
- Results of this survey will be reported at the school-level and individual respondents will not be identified.
- Access the Survey Here – Parents are encouraged to access the School Climate Survey online by visiting: https://www.surveymonkey.ca/r/MZNKRVV
- The survey should take you no longer than 15 minutes to complete. Once you access the website, you will be asked for the following password: ParentSchoolClimate2021
- For more information about the School Climate Survey for Parents, please refer to the Frequently Asked Questions – see attached.

Asian Heritage Month:
Asian Heritage Month has been celebrated across Canada since the 1990s. In May 2002, the Government of Canada signed an official declaration to designate May as Asian Heritage Month.
Over the last two centuries, immigrants have journeyed to Canada from East Asia, Southern Asia, Western and Southeast Asia, bringing our society a rich cultural heritage representing many languages, ethnicities and religious traditions.
This month, HCDSB recognizes the long and rich history of Asian Canadians and their contributions to the growth and prosperity of our country.
Join us as we celebrate Asian Heritage Month virtually with multiple activities and resources to enjoy at home with your family! Please see the flyer for more details.
Have a great week.
