Do you have questions about cannabis and how it relates to your school-aged child?
Join me, Dr. Elizabeth Paquette, OCSB Chief Psychologist, as I present with staff from the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board (OCDSB) and Ottawa Public Health (OPH) at two public information sessions for parents. Learn about cannabis, tackle the myths, what is known about the upcoming new laws, how to talk with your youth, protecting youth, and available services. Community partners like Rideauwood, Parents’ Lifelines of Eastern Ontario (PLEO), Ottawa Police Service (OPS), and Project Step will be accessible in a display area for questions from the public. OCSB staff will be available at both events for questions about curriculum and services available in schools. All are welcome.
- Thursday, April 26, 2018 from 6:30 to 8:30 pm at Gloucester High School, 2060 Ogilvie Road
- Thursday, May 3, 2018 from 6:30 to 8:30 pm at Sir Robert Borden High School, 131 Greenbank Road
Doors open at 6:30 pm for parents to browse the marketplace display area and chat with local experts. Presentations begin at 7:00 pm followed by the opportunity to ask the OCSB any questions you may have about how to navigate this new landscape.
