2022 FRENCH IMMERSION INFORMATION MEETING DETAILS
DPCDSB currently offers the Grade 1 French Immersion Program at eight school sites. Students registered in this Grade 1 program will spend 90% of their year learning in the French language. All subjects and activities in the French Immersion classroom, except for Religion and Family Life, will be delivered in French. In Grades 2 and 3, 70% of the instruction will be in French, with the proportion of English increasing to 50% in later years. This means that after at least 3,800 hours of French instruction by the end of Grade 8, students will be able to participate adequately in French conversations and develop intercultural awareness of French-speaking communities.
Virtual information sessions for parents/guardians will be held on two different evenings based on region of interest. We ask that parents/guardians attend only one of the following online sessions:

Hot Weather Plan
- Rotating classes through an air conditioned space and how often this should take place;
- Reminding those in non-air conditioned spaces and/or those with outdoor activities to drink plenty of water;
- Keeping physical activity down during the hot periods of the day and ensuring staff is monitoring students for signs of heat stress.
This is a reminder that if you have a Vulnerable Sector Check on file at Divine Mercy please complete an AOD (Annual Offence Declaration) before the end of March. By doing so, you will ensure that your Vulnerable Sector Check does not expire and that you can continue to volunteer. If you require an AOD form, please have your child come to the office to get one on your behalf.

Region of Peel Public Health - Student Caregiver Toolkit
If your child has been asked to stay home from school due to COVID-19 precautions or self-isolation, here are resources to help you care for them and your household during this period.
The safety and security of all children in our care is one of our prime concerns. In order to ensure safety and security, we are asking all visitors to the school, including parents, to come to the office through the front door when you arrive. No parents should be accessing the school through any other doors. This will allow us to welcome you and to ask you to sign in at the office and to wear a tag as a visitor or volunteer while in the building. In addition to ensuring the security of the children in the school, this will allow the staff to get to know parents more quickly. We ask for your cooperation in making this system work.
To further ensure the safety of all students and to minimize the traffic in sis chool hallways at arrival and dismissal times, we ask that parents meet their children outside of the school and away from the immediate exit doors. Staff are on duty 15 minutes before the start of the school day, throughout the entire noon hour, and 10 minutes at the front of the school and Kiss and Ride after school. Any student leaving the school during the day due to appointments, etc., must be signed out at the office. Please ensure that you send a note in this regard to your child’s teacher.
