All students deserve to be safe and to feel safe in school. Whether it is on the school grounds, on school buses or at school events and activities student safety needs to be a high priority. Safety is an essential element in ensuring that each student reaches his or her full potential; students learn and teachers teach more successfully when schools are safe.
Grand Erie District School Board feels that it is important that all members of the educational community share this commitment to safety, and it is only once this is achieved that we can truly live our vision: Growing Excellence… Inspiring Success.
