#Ottnews New #OCSB policy shows how parents can get kids’ exemption from heretical Religion Classes

The new policy is closer to following the law. The demand for a “reason” is awful. The Simcoe County Catholic Board has already been taken to the Human Rights Commission for having an overly arduous process.

Please note the 8 weeks notice. So, get your MPAC changed ASAP to the Public Board. Your children can still go to the school and their can be ZERO punishments.

A reason can be “conflict with home religious values”. There is NO invalid reason, but it’s better to make a good reason that the principal cannot argue with (another one is the Parent is Primary Educator and you believe that the religion classes are inappropriate for your children)

 When demanding an exemption from CARFLEO/OECTA Religion classes, please remember to include the notice that no admin, teacher or guidance counsellor should talk in any way to your child about this matter. This is only a matter between parent and Principal. In fact, regardless of whether your child takes religion class or not, goes to Public or “catholic” school, a note should be sent to the Principal etc (and kept on file) that there should be NO meetings with any guidance counsellor and child without a parent present.

Guidance counsellors are often “attack vectors” that divide a parent and child. We have heard several stories about this and felt the need to warn parents.
