Sleddding Safety at Schoolhttp://por.scdsb.on.ca/about-us/news/school-news/97Sleddding Safety at School<p>Student safety is our first priority, and although we do allow "crazy carpets" and soft sleds at our school, we do not allow hard sleds, two-person sleds or snow racers. We do supervise sledding and we remind students of safety rules on a regular basis. </p><p>We want to inform parents that if students are sledding at school, Ophea (the Ontario Physical and Health Education Association) recommends that they should wear a properly fitted (as per manufacturer's guidelines) and properly worn CSA-approved hockey helmet or snow sport helmet certified by a recognized safety standards association.</p><p>If you send a sled and helmet (optional) to school with your child, you are giving permission for your child to take part in this activity. </p>
