Take Our Kids To Work Day
On Wednesday, November 5, all grade 9 students are invited to take part in Take Our Kids To Work day. Students across Canada will be given the opportunity to accompany a parent, relative or friend to work for the day. Participation in this event from West Carleton students is very high with virtually all grade 9 students participating.
This day is meant to foster in our young people an understanding of what it means to go to work.
In order to participate in this event, the consent form that has been given to your student during their homeroom class must be filled out and returned to their homeroom teacher as soon as possible.

Student Accident Insurance
Creating a caring and safe environment for our students is our top priority. Unfortunately, despite all reasonable precautions being taken, accidents can still happen. Some injuries may result in medical, dental or other expenses that are not covered by provincial health care or employer group plans. As a parent/guardian, you become responsible for these expenses.
Student accident insurance is available for purchase, on a voluntary basis, through Reliable Life Insurance Company. Forms can either be picked up from the school office or downloaded at www.binks.ca, or you may apply online at www.insuremykids.com.
The OCDSB encourages all parents/guardians to consider purchasing this insurance. If your child is involved in school related sports activities or is participating in any field trips out of the province you may wish to seriously consider the coverage options, which range from $13.00/year to $31.00/year. This coverage is for the entire calendar year and also applies outside of school hours. If you have any questions, please call Binks Insurance Brokers directly at 613-226-1350.
