Welcome to the 2016-2017 School Year!
We are excited to kick the new school year off. Throughout the year, you will be receiving Family Newsletters via Skyward and Family Access as well as additional notifications and information that you may need to know. We will do our best to keep you informed of things in and around Hoose.
Service Dog(s) at Hoose
This school year there will be a service dog(s) in our school assisting several of our students, and, the service dog(s) may, at times, be part of your child's class.
This service dog(s) is a highly trained companion for our student(s) and is able to assist in many of the routine activities which may pose some challenges for our student(s). The child's right to have a service dog is protected under Human Rights legislation and follows Unit 5 Board Policy.
All the teachers in the school will be given instruction on how their students should behave around the service dog(s). The students will be informed that while the service dog is wearing his red vest/identification at the school, he is a working service dog and should not be treated as a pet.
This is a wonderful opportunity for your child to see how a service animal can positively affect the student with whom he/she has been matched. If you have any specific concerns regarding the presence of the service dog in your child's class, please contact either Adam Zbrozek or Nancy Braun at the school.
Thank you for your understanding and support.
Dr. Adam Zbrozek Mrs. Nancy Braun
