​Health & Wellness at the CBE

At the CBE, we believe in a whole school approach to health and wellness. We call this our Comprehensive School Health (CSH) approach. CSH is about healthy eating, active living, supportive social environments and positive mental health. As a system, we focus on the following four areas: healthy eating; healthy relationships; physical activity; and positive mental health. Each school creates its own approach and goals for health and wellness.

Visit the CBE website to learn more about health and wellness in schools.​​​​​

At Our School

The services of a community health nurse, speech language pathologist, mental health counselor, physical and occupational therapist and psychologist are available on a referral basis through our Learning Support Team.

Comprehensive School Health

Comprehensive School Health worked diligently to survey our streets for safe behaviour from pedestrians, cyclists and drivers. Take the Safer Streets for All Users Pre-Initiative Survey. Stay tuned to see the results of our survey. For information about traffic safety around our school, visit Parking & Drop-Off.

Advisory for Cold Weather

During the winter months cold temperatures, wind chill and snow can make getting to and from school challenging. Our school and other CBE schools rarely close due to snow or cold weather. Assume we are open unless you hear otherwise from us. Information regarding any school closures due to weather will also be posted on the CBE website, on Twitter (@yyCBEdu) and shared with local news media. During the winter season we remind parents/guardians of the following:

  • Families should ensure that they have back-up care arrangements if transportation is delayed. Children should have a warm place to stay before and after school (i.e. with a neighbour or a nearby relative).

  • Children should be well prepared for the weather and not left unattended at bus stops for any period of time, under any circumstances.

  • All CBE schools will remain open to provide a safe, warm and secure environment for students

    Inclement Weather and "Blue Dot" Days

    If the temperature is -20 ̊ Celsius or colder, we call this a "Blue Dot Day", which means the students come directly into the school, remove their outer wear and proceed to their classrooms. We ask that students come suitably dressed for the weather. An indoor recess will be held when weather conditions pose a safety concern, or when the temperature is -20 ̊ Celsius or colder.
