ST. MICHAEL CATHOLIC SECONDARY SCHOOL

June 20/2022

Dear Parents/Guardians:

End of the school year and graduation for senior students are events to be celebrated and enjoyed by students, families and staff alike. Indeed, this is true for students, families and staff in any grade. Unfortunately, this time of year can also prompt incidents of unsafe behavior, acts of vandalism and "threats" characterized as "grad pranks" or "year-end pranks." We are asking for your help in ensuring that your child is aware that unsafe and unacceptable behaviors can have serious consequences. We do not condone:

  • Bullying, cyberbullying, harassment, threat(s) or intimidation;
  • Violence of any form;
  • Verbal, physical or sexual abuse;
  • Discrimination in any form;
  • Inhumane treatment of animals;
  • Theft;
  • Unsafe or dangerous activities;
  • Vandalism;
  • Possession or use of intoxicating or banned substances;
  • Possession or use of weapons (or replica weapons).

Individuals involved in these types of activities may be subject to criminal charges and school consequences, including losing the privilege to attend extra-curricular events such as the graduation ceremony.

Our Catholic Code of Conduct clearly outlines our expectations for all students and we hope that this will provide some guidance for anyone contemplating such activity, which often has an impact on the entire school community.

Thank you for your attention to this important matter as we work together to ensure that our young people experience a safe and healthy conclusion to the 2021-2022 school year.

Sincerely,

F. Tantalo

Principal

 

Immunization Clinic

 

A Routine School Immunization clinic will be held at our school on Friday, June 24, 2022. This clinic will provide students from grades 9 to 12  a convenient and comfortable space to get their free routine school immunization that was paused during the pandemic.  The vaccines which will be offered are Human Papillomavirus (HPV), Hepatitis B (Hep B) and Meningococcal ACYW-135.

 

On June 24, the clinic will operate between 12:30 p.m. - 3:30 p.m. and is restricted to students attending St. Michael Catholic Secondary School.  Appointments must be booked hereA limited number of walk-ins are accepted but booked appointments are preferred. 

 

On this same date, the clinic will hold evening hours between 3:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. During this time, students in grades 7 to 12, who live in the community, can also get their routine immunizations by booking an appointment here

 

The evening clinic will also offer COVID-19 vaccine to eligible residents 5 and over, including first, second and booster doses at this location between 3:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. You can book an appointment here Walk-ins are accepted but appointments are preferred to guarantee a spot.  

 

While there is priority for grade 12 students, because they will be ageing out of the funded program upon graduation; we also encourage students from grades 7-11 to come and get their routine immunizations. Children 14 years or older can give consent themselves provided they understand the treatment, why it is being recommended, and the risks and benefits of accepting or refusing to be vaccinated. 

 

Students or parents and legal guardians can check if their child has already received their routine school immunizations through the Immunize Connect Ontario (ICON) website or by asking their primary care provider. Meningococcal vaccine is a single dose. HPV and Hep B are a two- or three-dose vaccine series, depending on age at time of vaccination. 

 

By getting these vaccines, students will be protected against serious diseases, including preventing cancer later in life.  

To find out more about the routine school immunizations or to get information on other select clinic locations, check the Peel Region website.
