Dear Parents and Guardians,
I wanted to provide a follow up to the email I sent you on March 21st regarding the Sanctity of Life Motion related to school fundraising.
At the Regular Board Meeting held on May 1, 2018, the Board of Trustees passed an amendment to the Sanctity of Life Motion (Resolution #61/18 Upholding the Sanctity of Life Through Donations to Charities and Non-Profits).
The details of the amendment are available on our Board’s website here: https://bit.ly/HCDSB-SanctityofLife
The amendment to Resolution #61/18 states that schools and school councils may continue to fundraise in the same manner as they did prior to Resolution #61/18, until an amended fundraising policy is approved by the Board.
