Holiday Luncheon Luncheon<p>​On Thursday, December 17, our grade 6-8 students celebrated the coming holidays with our 4<sup>th</sup> Annual Turkey Luncheon.  This is a special day where our staff and students get together as a Hawks' family and enjoy a formal Turkey dinner.  We would like to thank all our volunteers and staff who worked tirelessly in organizing, purchasing, and preparing the food for this event.  We would also like to thank Lesley Martin who donated the carrots and potatoes.  Without the help and support of these amazing people, we would not have been able to provide this experience for our students.​<a href="/PublishingImages/Lists/LocalNews/AllItems/Turkey%20Dinner.jpg"><img class="ms-asset-icon ms-rtePosition-4" src="/_layouts/15/images/icjpg.gif" alt="" />Turkey Dinner.jpg</a><a href="/PublishingImages/Lists/LocalNews/AllItems/Turkey%20Dinner.jpeg"><img class="ms-asset-icon ms-rtePosition-4" src="/_layouts/15/images/icjpeg.gif" alt="" />Turkey Dinner.jpeg</a><a href="/PublishingImages/Lists/LocalNews/AllItems/Turkey%20Dinner2.jpg"><img class="ms-asset-icon ms-rtePosition-4" src="/_layouts/15/images/icjpg.gif" alt="" />Turkey Dinner2.jpg</a><a href="/PublishingImages/Lists/LocalNews/AllItems/Turkey%20Dinner%203.jpg"><img class="ms-asset-icon ms-rtePosition-4" src="/_layouts/15/images/icjpg.gif" alt="" />Turkey Dinner 3.jpg</a><a href="/PublishingImages/Lists/LocalNews/AllItems/Turkey%20Dinner%20-%20de%20Groot%20and%20Packard.jpeg"><img class="ms-asset-icon ms-rtePosition-4" src="/_layouts/15/images/icjpeg.gif" alt="" />Turkey Dinner - de Groot and Packard.jpeg</a></p>

Social workers and privacy of information workers and privacy of information<p>​</p><p style="text-align:left;">The Simcoe County District School Board (SCDSB) is committed to supporting the mental health and well-being of all students. Consistent with that goal, the SCDSB provides consultation and counselling services on-site by both SCDSB employed registered social workers as well as approved community service agencies for students in both elementary and secondary schools.</p><p style="text-align:left;">These support services are governed under the guidelines of the Education Act, Child and Family Services Act (CFSA), Personal Health Information Act (PHIPA), SCDSB's APM A8550, Protocol for Collaborative Agreements with External Agencies or Individual Practitioners in the Areas of Regulated Health Professionals and Paraprofessionals and Regulated Social Service Professional and Paraprofessionals, as well as the Ontario Ministry of Education's PPM 149, Protocol for Partnerships and External Agencies for Provision of Services by Regulated Health Professionals.</p><p style="text-align:left;">Consistent with age-of-consent guidelines as laid out in the CFSA, a student 12 years-of-age and older can provide informed consent as to whether he/she wishes parent/guardian/caregiver be informed and involved in the process however, the student's wishes will prevail. As a best-practice, SCDSB social workers and community partners are expected to encourage students to involve their parent/guardian/caregiver in the process. For students 11 years-of-age and under, parent/guardian/caregiver informed consent is required prior to any service being provided to a student, regardless of provider.</p><p style="text-align:left;">Personal health information (subject to limitations as set out on the consent form), may only be shared with SCDSB staff who are working directly with the student (i.e. classroom teacher, principal, guidance counsellor, etc.) on a limited 'need to know' basis. The SCDSB collects and uses personal health information only as is reasonably necessary for the purpose of planning and delivery of educational programs and services.</p><p style="text-align:left;">Please contact the school principal if you would like additional information about the services available to support your child. A copy of the SCDSB's PHIPA Statement is available on request through the school as well as posted on the SCDSB's website, <a href="" target="_blank"></a>.</p>
