Please note, this statement has been jointly prepared by both the administration of Riverview and Moncton High School.
We want everyone to know that racism is not accepted nor tolerated in either of our schools or at extracurricular events. We work proactively to promote kindness, understanding, appreciation, and inclusion of all cultures, races, and backgrounds through in-class and out of class learning opportunities such as assemblies, curricular-based learning, and extracurricular activities. A recent example of this was when both schools participated in Orange Shirt Day in support of reconciliation and that every child matters. When our students make mistakes and exhibit problem behaviors and misunderstandings in this regard, we work with those students to help them learn and change their way of thinking and behaving. We also apply appropriate consequences to reinforce these required changes in behavior.
On Friday, September 29th, at a football game between our two schools, students from both schools made mistakes and exhibited inappropriate behaviors. During the half time, staff members from both schools separated the students so they were sitting apart in the bleachers. The second half of the game carried on without incident. After the game was finished, allegations of racist comments were made. Both schools investigated the event and it was determined that the comments came from youth sitting in the Riverview High School crowd. Most of these youths are not students at any school.
Those students that exhibited problem behaviors have been dealt with by their respective schools. Anyone identified acting in a racist way from Riverview High School received a suspension. Other youth that were not students that engaged in racist comments have been banned from attending future school-related events.
These situations also create opportunities for learning for our school communities. As a result of this situation, staff from both schools have already and will be spending some time helping our students be kind, understanding, appreciative and inclusive no matter who you are. We encourage parents and guardians to continue this conversation with your child at home.
On behalf of the administrators from MHS and RHS, we thank you for your support in helping all of our students learn from situations like this to move forward in a positive and proactive manner.
In September 2017, Mental Health and Addiction Services for children and youth along with mental health services offered in schools have been restricted to make them more accessible to this clientele.
This service delivery model called Integrated Service Delivery (ISD) will serve children and with significant emotional, social and/or mental health needs. This innovative approach that makes it possible for departments and agencies (Education and Early Childhood Development, Health, Social Development, Justice and Public Safety, school districts, and the Regional Health Networks) to work together in order to provide the right service at the right intensity at the right time.
At the heart of the ISD model are the child and youth teams (C & Y teams), which are composed of school and mental health psychologists, school and mental health social workers, addiction workers, learning support teachers, and a clinical coordinator. These teams will provide services around a group of schools.
To help you understand this information, we thought it would be useful to include the groupings of schools associated with the six Anglophone C & Y teams in the region. The phone number to access the reception office of each team is also indicated in that document.
For more information on the ISD model, we encourage you to visit our web site at : http://www2.gnb.ca/content/gnb/en/departments/education/isd.html

Good afternoon, the District Education Council is embarking on a community engagement activity ahead of developing their new District Improvement Plan.
Along with the teachers in your schools you will be asked to participate in a three step process aimed at collecting, prioritizing and reporting thoughts from the school community. Tomorrow you will receive an email that will ask you to comment on three broad questions:
What would you like our schools or the district to improve upon?
What do you appreciate about our schools or the district?
What other thoughts or questions do you have about our schools?
After you give your input on the three questions, all of your thoughts and those of everyone else will be put together and sent back to you . You will then have an opportunity to see what others said and add stars to the ideas you like the most. The most popular ideas will rise to the top. The final step is for you to see where the priorities landed and this information will help the District Education Council develop their strategic plan as well as informing the decisions made at the Office of the Superintendent for the rest of this year.
The email will come from my office (email@example.com ) and the answers will be collected and forwarded to a survey company called Thought Exchange. I appreciate your taking the time to share your thoughts with us as we work together to set the direction for our school district.
