OUR HEALTH POLICY
If your child is ill, please remember to call the bus company, as well as the school. A message can be left on the school answering machine any time throughout the night – 905-576-8403. At Campbell’s we make every attempt to keep the school, students and staff healthy by following the Grandview Health Screen. Families are asked to keep their students home if they have had any of the following symptoms in the last 48 hours:
- fever or chills
- new onset cough
- severe unexplained fatigue or pains
- excessive nasal discharge
- diarrhea or vomiting
- open skin wounds or new rash
- other symptoms of infectious illness that could be passed to others while they are at school
We also remind families that if your child is sent home ill from school, we ask that they stay home the following day as well to rest.

DECEMBER 3rd - SENSORY SANTA
The students at Campbell's had a special visitor this week! Mr. and Mrs. Claus were here to check up on our students and to hear their Christmas wishes. Sensory Santa is a great opportunity for our students to get some one-on-one time with the big man without the noise and business that often comes with visiting in a busy mall. Thanks for stopping by!
NOVEMBER 23rd - FAMILY NUMERACY AND STEM MORNING
We recently held a family engagement morning at Campbells. Families were invited to complete numeracy and science activities with their child and help bridge the gap of learning between home and school. Scientist in the School put on a great workshop called "Math+Science=Fun" that had all the students and families involved, thanks for coming!
NOVEMBER 15th - UOIT WOMEN'S HOCKEY
This month for "Ridgeback Days", the University of Ontario Women's Hockey Team joined us for the morning. The athletes engaged students in hockey skill building and challenged them to a game, the Campbells kids won as usual of course!
NOVEMBER 12th - CAMPBELLS IN THE COMMUNITY
In recognition of remembrance day, our students spent time creating poppies for the Oshawa Thrift Store which has a store front in downtown Oshawa.
OCTOBER 31st - HALLOWEEN AT GRANDVIEW
The students at Campbells were treated to a special event at Grandview! Grandview staff dressed up and handed out treats to the students of Campbells. The students practiced their high and low tech communication skills as they interacted with staff throughout the centre. This is a great yearly event that allows some students who aren’t able to trick or treat in their neighborhoods due to accessibility the chance to participate in Halloween. Check out this great group photo of staff and students!
SEPTEMBER 27th - TERRY FOX WALK AND ROLL
Our students participated in fundraising and had a walk in the community in support of our yearly Terry Fox Walk and Roll. This event is always a great opportunity to discuss courage and perseverance with our students as they work hard in therapy to reach their own goals.
