Dear Parents/Guardians, 

It has come to our attention that some students in Wellington Catholic District School Board are planning a student walkout on Friday, September 21, 2018 at Guelph City Hall, 1-3 p.m., protesting changes to the curriculum. Information and messages are being circulated on social media, emails and through web sites. The planned student walkout on Friday September 21st, 2018 is not a Board/School sanctioned event. 

The Wellington Catholic District School Board values the students’ voice, and a vision of the learner that includes what it means to be a responsible citizen, a reflective thinker, and a discerning believer. Our school administration and office staff will follow regular attendance/ safe arrival procedures and report the missed class(es) to the parent/ guardian as soon as possible. Our school staff will not be supervising students who participate in the protest as it remains a regular school day. 

We sincerely appreciate your partnership in the education of your children. Please direct any questions/ concerns to the administration of your child’s school. 

Sincerely, 

Tamara Nugent signature2.jpg
