A tragic loss in the OCDSB
This week, our hearts broke with the tragic loss of Rowan Stringer, student at John McCrae Secondary School. Our thoughts and prayers are with Rowan's family and friends as they come together this weekend to say goodbye. Together, we must learn from this, and Rowan's family suggested two areas of learning; concussion management and organ donation. There are some useful link's included in the Director's message this week. Also, the OCDSB website contains information that parents might find helpful when supporting children who might be affected by tragedy.
On Friday morning (May 17) the Ottawa area experienced a minor earth tremor. In these situations, we implement an emergency response protocol. While some schools were evacuated as a safety precaution, there was no safety concern at Mutchmor. Our chief custodian completed a visual inspection of our building promptly after the earthquake. We used it a good learning opportunity about earthquakes and safety at our school.
