Principal's Message - Week of February 23, 2024

Hello Falgarwood families,

Please read this message in its entirety as it contains some important information.  A reminder to also read all correspondence from the Halton District School Board.

We thank all parents and caregivers for working alongside our educational team.  Together we are building relationships with our families, community resources and Falgarwood is a beautiful place to learn and grow.

Problem Solving Pathway - Student Issues

Halton District School Board suggests that public concerns and questions should be dealt with at the level closest to the issue. Therefore, the following chart is intended to help members of the public, staff and trustees expeditiously deal with questions and/or concerns.

If there are any student issues, please speak to your child’s teacher first who will be able to help you solve the problem. They are equipped with strategies to help your child learn social skills and how to solve situations between students.

Student Transportation

Halton Student Transportation Services (HSTS) is currently experiencing a shortage of bus drivers, which may result in potential bus delays or cancellations in the coming weeks. At this time, we ask that you regularly check the HSTS website ( for updates and plan alternative transportation arrangements accordingly. We understand the importance of reliable transportation. HSTS are actively working to address the shortage and we appreciate your understanding.

Digital Citizenship and Social Media Concerns

We encourage families to visit the HDSB’s Technology & You webpage, (  which provides information and resources for students and families on how to use technology responsibly. Parents/guardians are encouraged to review these resources with students and be mindful of what students are sharing online. At school, we have reviewed with students the proper use of technology in classroom discussions and reinforced the importance of using social media responsibly and safely.

Black History Month

As February is here, staff and students are engaging in various learning activities surrounding Black History Month.  We are having a school-wide identity wall, the introduction of Unlearn posters, and different class activities throughout the school.  Earlier this week we welcomed a Caribbean Steel Pan presentation. 

Student Supervision

Student Supervision starts at 9:10am before school and ends at 4:00pm after school.  Staff are outside circulating with supervision vests as well as walkie talkies.

A reminder that before school the climber and field are closed. Students are to be on the black top and make their way to their entry doors when the bells ring. This way students are properly supervised.  We remind students to stay off the icy (or muddy) patches. If you could remind your children of this at home. Please see our supervisors outside if you need assistance.

Kiss and Ride

Thank you for using our Kiss and Ride for dropping students off in the mornings. We noticed students were still walking in between vehicles. To keep everyone safe, students are to exit from the left-hand side of vehicles and walk directly to the walkway and to their class line ups at the back of the school. The Kiss and Ride is only open in the mornings for drop-offs.

Thanks to our staff and leadership team, our culture here is kind, caring, positive and uplifting.  Together we are putting students and their families first. We look forward to working with you and continuing this positive, collaborative and enriched learning climate.
