PLEASE NOTE REVISIONS TO POLICY 711:

Dear Parents & Guardians,

Today the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development announced revisions to Policy 711: Healthier School Food Environment.

These changes provide flexibility and empower local school communities to make informed decisions about the health and well-being of their students.

As part of these new standards, chocolate milk and 100 per cent fruit juice will be permitted to be sold in public schools.  

There will also be some flexibility for schools providing breakfast programs to students who need a better start to their school day.

For fundraising and special events, schools will be empowered to organize activities and occasions that respond to the needs of the local school community.

In-school celebrations, holidays, and special occasions will be permitted, although timing of these events must be reasonable and undertaken in moderation.

The overall main goal of the policy will continue to be to promote and make available healthy foods and beverages at school whenever and wherever possible.

Health Note:

Talking with your kids about substance use:

 
Did you know that 1 in 5 Canadian teens claim that they used cannabis in the past year? Cannabis is now legal in Canada. With that, the protection of our kids is on many people’s minds. Experts say that children should be supported to make healthy and safe choices about substance use. This is best done by parents and guardians engaging in open and supportive conversations with their children. Parents are encouraged to start having these talks early – well before the child is placed in situations where they may begin to engage in substance use.
Basic tips for talking to your child about substance use:
·         Keep an open mind and don’t lecture
·         Find a comfortable setting where you both feel relaxed
·         Put yourself in your child’s shoes
·         Remain calm and relaxed
·         Stay positive and do not express shame or anger
·         Be clear about your goals
·         Be aware of your body language
