The school acknowledges the important role that pets play in the community and the positive impact dogs can have on family life. For many community members, dogs are an important part of the family. A dog can be a joy but they are also a big responsibility. In recent years, more dogs are being brought onto school grounds. This has the potential to increase the risk of injury to children caused by dogs (e.g. bites and scratches) through dogs reacting adversely to unexpected noise and/or movement of children. There have also been more cases of dog excrement within the school grounds. This poses a health issue to the school.
Some students have had poor experiences with dogs. Parents and their children can work on that. However, all students have the right to feel safe in their own school. Currently, some do not.
Please note the following and help us support all children.
