The Simcoe County District School Board (SCDSB) is committed to supporting the mental health and well-being of all students. Consistent with that goal, the SCDSB provides consultation and counseling services on-site by both SCDSB employed registered social workers as well as approved community service agencies for students in both elementary and secondary schools.
These support services are governed under the guidelines of the Education Act, Child and Family Services Act (CFSA), Personal Health Information Act (PHIPA), SCDSB’s APM A8550, Protocol for Collaborative Agreements with External Agencies or Individual Practitioners in the Areas of Regulated Health Professionals and Paraprofessionals and Regulated Social Service Professional and Paraprofessionals, as well as the Ontario Ministry of Education’s PPM 149, Protocol for Partnerships and External Agencies for Provision of Services by Regulated Health Professionals.
Consistent with age-of-consent guidelines as laid out in the CFSA, a student 12 years-of-age and older can provide informed consent as to whether he/she wishes parent/guardian/caregiver be informed and involved in the process however, the student’s wishes will prevail. As a best-practice, SCDSB social workers and community partners are expected to encourage students to involve their parent/guardian/caregiver in the process. For students 11 years-of-age and under, parent/guardian/caregiver informed consent is required prior to any service being provided to a student, regardless of provider.
Personal health information (subject to limitations as set out on the consent form), may only be shared with SCDSB staff who are working directly with the student (i.e. classroom teacher, principal, guidance counselor, etc.) on a limited ‘need to know’ basis. The SCDSB collects and uses personal health information only as is reasonably necessary for the purpose of planning and delivery of educational programs and services.
Please contact the school principal if you would like additional information about the services available to support your child. A copy of the SCDSB’s PHIPA Statement is available on request through the school as well as posted on the SCDSB’s website (www.scdsb.on.ca).
If you have any questions, please contact Danielle Mink, SCDSB Mental Health Lead at [email protected] (705) 734-6363 ext. 11865.

In our Library today classes were watching the opening ceremonies of the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia. The kindergarten classes were especially thrilled as they were dressed up in their Olympic hats and carrying their Olympic torches and Canadian flags. In fact they were the ones to cheer the loudest as our Canadian Athletes entered the Sochi stadium. We look forward in continuing cheering for Canada and hope that we’ve inspired some future athlete from our school to take up the Olympic torch and win future Gold for Canada in the future!
The Grade 8 students will be hosting another movie night for Mapleview students on February 14th from 6-9 pm. Drop your kids off at school in their pyjamas and let them enjoy 2 pieces of Topper’s pizza, a drink, cupcake, crafts and a movie while you dine out in luxury. Registration forms will be coming home in the first week of February.
The Christmas Cheer Campaign exceeded their financial goal of $235,000 and collected enough food and toys to provide a Christmas to over 5000 people and 1833 families. The schools played a very large part in accomplishing this and Christmas Cheer acknowledges that they would not have been able to accomplish such a massive task without our help. Thank you for encouraging your students to donate and support this worthwhile cause.
