Parent Workshop Series - Learning Disabilities Association of Halton
The Learning Disabilities Association of Halton (LDAH), using a PRO Grant, has organized a number of Workshops and Parent Tool Kit Sessions.  A number of resources will also be shared with parents in attendance.

We're helping to save lives with MedicAlert No Child Without program 
Did you know that one in five Canadian children are in need of a MedicAlert ID? These children have medical conditions or allergies and are at risk every day. If something happens, they could be too shy, too scared or unable to say what's wrong. 

MedicAlert is the most trusted, most recommended medical ID service provider in Canada. For more than 55 years, MedicAlert has protected the lives of over one million Canadians by offering exclusive services to those in need. Through the No Child Without charitable program, founded by MedicAlert in 2006, students attending participating schools can receive a free MedicAlert medical ID and free MedicAlert service plan coverage until their 14th birthday. 

Rolling Meadows PS/HDSB has been participating in the MedicAlert No Child Without program since 2007 so that these lifesaving services are available to all of our students who need it, regardless of their financial situations. 

No Child Without has helped kids like 9-year-old Joshua, who bravely points to his MedicAlert ID bracelet during a seizure to tell others what's wrong. 

"It put my mind at ease that the MedicAlert bracelet meant people could help him. I never imagined that he would use his MedicAlert ID to communicate," says his proud mom, Laurie. 

Parents and guardians, please consider this program if your child lives with:

  • Anaphylaxis or severe allergy to foods, drugs or chemicals
  • Asthma, diabetes, autism, and other congenital diseases
  • Medical devices, such as insulin pump and cochlear implant
  • Medications like prednisone, insulins, and EpiPen®

Cashless Schools Ends June 25, 2017

New - School Cash Online System

Dear Parent/Guardian,

As a follow-up to the previous notification from the Board, Cashless Schools will no longer be available after June 25, 2017 to accept online payments.  Families/staff will receive information during the month of June on how to register for our new School Cash Online service.

We hope you have been using your balances in your Cashless Schools wallets to pay for school events and activities over the past few weeks.  As Cashless Schools and School Cash Online are independently operated vendors, the Board is unable to arrange for a transfer of unused wallet balances between the two systems. Many parents/staff have been asking, “What will happen to the balances remaining in my Cashless Schools wallet?”  At this time, two options are available:

1)      Request a withdrawal of unused wallet funds to your Cashless Schools Pre-Authorized Debit account, (shown online under “Your Account > Saved Bank Accounts), or

2)      Make a donation to your school through Cashless Schools for the amount of the funds in your wallet you do not wish to be refunded.  Look for the appropriate donations fee and make your donation before June 25, 2017.  Upon request to the school, donations of $20 or more may be tax receipted.

The refund process for parents/staff who have Pre-Authorized Debit in Cashless Schools is simple.

1)      Under your “Cashless Account” select the “Withdraw” button and follow the instructions.

2)      Funds will be returned to the designated bank account in approximately 1-2 weeks.

Instructions on How to setup Pre-Authorized Debit:

1)      Under your “Cashless Account” select the “Deposit” button

2)      Click on the “Add a Bank Account Link”

3)      Print the Authorization Form.  Complete the form and attach a void cheque.

4)      Return the form to Cashless Schools by email, fax or mail

5)      Wait for the email from Cashless Schools to confirm your account has been setup.  Please allow one week for setup due to increased volume.

Who to Contact?

If you have any questions specific to the Cashless Schools Pre-Authorized Debit and wallet refund procedures, please contact Cashless Schools at 1-866-231-3322 or send an email through their “Contact Us” website link.  We appreciate your patience in working with Cashless Schools as there will be a significant volume of activity during June.

If you have any questions about Halton District School Board’s new online payment service, School Cash Online, please call 1-866-961-1803 or email

Raccoon Rabies

The Halton Region Health Department has received test results confirming cases of raccoon rabies found in skunks in Burlington. The rabies virus is spread through the saliva of an infected animal, usually entering through a bite or scratch. Halton Health Dept reminds anyone who comes into physical contact with a raccoon or other wild animal to see a physician immediately about post-exposure rabies treatment and to report the exposure to the Health Dept as soon as possible, by calling 311. 

The Health Department is reminding residents to:
  • teach children to avoid unfamiliar cats and dogs, not to touch sick or dead animals and to observe wild animals from a distance,
  • ensure dogs and cats are kept up-to-date with their rabies vaccinations, 
  • not allow pets to roam free and keep them indoors at night to prevent contact with wild animals, 
  • take pets that come in contact with a raccoon or other wild animal to a veterinarian for follow-up, 
  • not attempt to relocate wild animals.
