Read our COVID-19 Division Re-entry Strategy for information about how we’re welcoming students and staff back into schools this September.
To ensure that in the event of the death of a student, or a current or former staff member or Trustee, appropriate acknowledgement is made on behalf of the Division.
To ensure that, when the learning or working environment is impacted by a death, support is available for students and staff affected by the loss.
Critical Incident Support Services Team (CISS) is comprised of a number of Division social workers and psychologists who provide assistance in supporting students and staff dealing with grief and loss resulting from a traumatic incident such as a death of a member of the school or work place.
Close family member includes spouse/partner, son/in-law or daughter/in-law, and parent/in-law or equivalent.
