What’s happening in Rainbow Schools?

Guide contains important information about Rainbow Schools

Students in Rainbow Schools in Sudbury, Espanola and Manitoulin Island can access the 2020-2021 Guide for Students and Parents/Guardians online at rainbowschools.ca. The publication contains important information that will serve as a handy reference throughout the school year, including a link to the Reopening Guide for Rainbow Schools.

“On behalf of Trustees, I would like to extend a warm welcome to all students and families,” says Rainbow District School Board Chair, Doreen Dewar. “As always, the health and safety of students, staff, parents/guardians and the communities that we serve is the first and foremost priority. We encourage parents/guardians and students to read the Reopening Guide for Rainbow Schools to learn about the many protocols being implemented for COVID-19.”

She adds: “This year, there will be more support for mental health with a focus on developing resiliency skills, managing stress, and building positive relationships. Providing a strong circle of care in this time of uncertainty is more important than ever. While we resume teaching and learning against the backdrop of a global pandemic, you can be assured that we remain focused on student well-being and achievement.”

Director of Education Norm Blaseg encourages parents/guardians to take an active interest in their child’s education, whether they are learning in school or online. “We also ask parents/guardians to reinforce the health and safety protocols at home. Everyone will be expected to follow them at all times. Thank you for working together to keep everyone safe.”

The Guide for Students and Parents/Guardians contains information about services, programs and policies, including the Code of Conduct. It also features key dates, such as school holidays, provincial assessments, professional activity days and secondary school examination days.
