Parents & Prevention Workshop
Please check out the attached poster for an upcoming free Parents and Prevention presentation hosted here at the Western Ottawa Community Resource Centre. It’s a great opportunity for parents to get some real and tangible knowledge about how to talk to their kids about drugs.
This is a partnership program with the Ottawa Police, so parents will get the social work perspective along with the law. It will be a very informative event!

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.
