Netflix series 13 Reasons Why – information for parents/guardianshttp://nor.scdsb.on.ca/about-us/news/board-news/71Netflix series 13 Reasons Why – information for parents/guardians<div>​​Recently there has been significant media coverage of the Netflix series 13 Reasons Why. The show is a fictional account of one teen’s suicide and the factors leading to it.  <br><br>The Simcoe County District School Board (SCDSB) has advised staff that they are not to use the series as a teaching tool. This decision is based upon the advice of mental health professionals from across the province, who have stated that the material is graphic and potentially triggering for vulnerable young people. While the themes in this series may not pose a risk or potential harm to most students, for those struggling with mental health issues and/or suicide ideation, this series includes graphic content, glamourizes suicidal behaviours and portrays helpers (school guidance counsellors) in a negative way.  <br><br>We recognize that your children may watch the series on their own. If they do, we encourage you to talk with them about their thoughts and feelings. The SCDSB has supports in place for students and staff, and there are many community resources you can access as well. More information and contact details are available on the <a href="http://www.scdsb.on.ca/Programs/Safe-and-Healthy-Schools/Pages/Mental-Health.aspx">SCDSB website​</a>.  <br><br>The National Association of School Psychologists has also developed <a href="http://www.nasponline.org/resources-and-publications/resources/school-safety-and-crisis/preventing-youth-suicide/13-reasons-why-netflix-series-considerations-for-educators">information regarding the series​</a>. You may also find this helpful in discussions with your children about suicide and mental health.   <br><br>If you have questions or concerns please contact your principal.</div><div><br></div>

Hold and secure at Barrie North - April 10, 2017http://nor.scdsb.on.ca/about-us/news/school-news/45Hold and secure at Barrie North - April 10, 2017<div>​On Monday, April 10 at about 11 a.m., Barrie Police contacted the school and asked us to go into hold and secure as a precaution while they conducted an investigation in the community. Our students and staff were outside conducting a regular fire drill at the time. We ended the drill and moved everyone back into the school.</div><div><br></div><div>We initiated our hold and secure, which means no one was allowed to enter or exit the building. All doors were locked. Our activities continued inside the building. We were in hold and secure for about 40 minutes. </div><div><br></div><div>We are proud of how our students and staff handled this situation. </div><div><br></div><div>We’ll always take whatever precautions are necessary to keep our school community safe. Parents should receive a call regarding this incident. As always, if you have any questions, please call us at the school.  </div><div><br></div>
