Sledding Safety at Schoolhttp://tso.scdsb.on.ca/about-us/news/school-news/60Sledding Safety at School<p>​</p><p><strong>Reminder about sledding safety at school </strong><br>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. </p><p>We want to inform parents that if students are sledding at school, Ophea (the Ontario Physical and Health Education Association) recommends that they 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.</p><p>If you send a sled and helmet (optional) to school with your child, you are giving permission for your child to take part in this activity. </p><p>​Please do not hesitate to call the office if you have any questions.<br></p><p><br></p><p> </p>
