Student safety is our first priority, and although we do allow "crazy carpets" and soft sleds at our school, we do not allow hard sleds, two-person sleds or snow racers. We do supervise sledding and we remind students of safety rules on a regular basis.
We want to inform parents that sometimes students participate in sledding at school as part of outdoor or physical education. Ophea (the Ontario Physical and Health Education Association) recommends that students should wear a properly fitted (as per manufacturer's guidelines) and properly worn CSA-approved hockey helmet or snow sport helmet certified by a recognized safety standards association.
If you do not wish your child to participate in sledding activities without a helmet, please notify the school in writing.
