Letter from new Superintendent of Schools January 21, 2014

To the families, students, staff and community members of the South Shore;

We would like to thank you for your patience and cooperation over the past number of weeks while we have experienced difficult weather conditions. We’ve gone from having 30+ centimeters of snow to roads so soft and wet that buses were too heavy to travel them.

The drastic changes in weather and road conditions have made for a challenging, and at times confusing, winter so far. We appreciate your understanding and support while we strive to always place student and staff safety first. The call is not always easy to make when cancelling schools or deciding to have buses travel on paved roads only. We have a strong partnership with the Department of Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal and together, with our excellent staff, we have been attempting to make sound decisions that cause the least disruption while keeping everyone safe.

Our media partners have been very helpful in assisting us in getting the message out to our families when school is canceled or buses are using their back road closure plans. We encourage you to listen to the radio, check our website, follow us on Twitter (@SouthShoreRSB) or sign up for our notification service.

If you have not seen our Storm Day Video to learn more about the decision making process, please check it out at www.ssrsb.ca .

Kind regards,


Geoff Cainen
Superintendent of Schools

Memo to Parents - November 28, 2013

Dear Parents/Guardians:

During lunchtime, school administration received a phone call that a non-student was rumored to be coming to our school with weapons.  Immediately, the Liverpool Detachment Royal Canadian Mounted Police were advised and responded by coming to our school.  Our school went into a “Hold and Secure” mode.

Upon arrival of police, students were advised to return to classrooms with their teachers, to insure everyone’s safety.  Afternoon classes went ahead as usual with staff and students receiving updates.

I am very pleased with the reaction of our students and staff.  The Liverpool Detachment Royal Canadian Mounted Police responded promptly, effectively and remained at school until student dismissal.  Their efforts will continue with investigative work.
