Cannabis Information

Our district is committed to ensuring that our school and district sites are welcoming, safe, caring, and respectful environments.

This includes:

  • Working with our educational and community partners on student, staff, and parent education about the legalization of cannabis and implications. 
  • Responding to Provincial legislation passed last fall by refining our administrative procedures related to to alcohol and illicit drug use to include Cannabis. 

Parents are encouraged to participate in community education sessions, access online resources, and talk with your children about Cannabis and this new legislation. Our partners are offering many community engagement opportunities:
