This letter is to inform you that Chedoke and Holbrook elementary schools and Sir Allan MacNab Secondary School entered a Hold and Secure response yesterday.
The news of the deadly attack at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida is leaving many of us at Hamilton-Wentworth District School Board saddened. We reflect on this tragic loss of life and condemn this deplorable attack on young people.
Hamilton-Wentworth District School Board (HWDSB) is gathering public feedback on its Draft Student Registration and Admissions Policy and the Draft Parent Engagement Policy.
The Draft Student Registration and Admissions Policy recognizes that every student has the right to attend a school where they are a qualified resident pupil as defined in the Education Act.
The Draft Parent Engagement Policy speaks to contributing to student achievement and well-being by fostering high levels of parent participation, involvement and engagement, as well as engaging in collaboration between the home and the school. This policy also addresses how HWDSB works with parents who are separated or divorced.

Watch: Just One Wish Kindness Awards
The third annual Just One Wish Kindness Awards were held on July 1, 2017 in Gage Park during the It's Your Festival celebrations for Canada's 150th birthday. Organizers honoured 151 children (150 for Canada's birthday and one for good luck), age 4 to 18, from across HWDSB for their kindness. These children exemplify what is means to be Canadian and what Canada is all about. Congratulations to all!
