Take Our Kids to Work Day is Wednesday, Nov. 5th
This year's "Take Our Kids to Work Day" is taking place Wednesday, Nov. 5th
The "Take Our Kids to Work Day" program is a day where Grade 9 students accompany a parent or guardian to work to observe his or her daily role as an employee. The student will complete a report, assigned by his or her teacher, based on the experience.
Wilfrid Laurier University supports this initiative and places the health and safety of the visiting students as a high priority.
The school boards require parents to sign a permission form, and Laurier requires the parent or guardian to sign a Release and Indemnification Form for any student participating in this initiative. The signed release form must be forwarded to the Director: Safety, Health, Environment & Risk Management (SHERM) no later than one week prior to visiting day.
To access the Parental Release and Indemnification Form and learn more about the initiative, download the "Take Our Kids to Work Day" program.
