Teacher / Administrator Letter

Parent Letter

Find your province’s English and translated versions of the parent letter here.
To prepare your parent letters for distribution, please:

1 – place letters on School District letterhead

2 – fill out the highlighted sections which includes the district contact information at the end, as well as the due date on the parent withdrawal form (last page)

3 – keep in mind that parents/guardians must have 4 weeks to withdraw their students before the survey takes place, so we recommend sending the letters as soon as possible to be ready for administration in January/February.

4 – as an on-going effort to help reach Aboriginal families and communities, connect with your district’s Aboriginal Principal and request a word or short phrase in order to insert either a word of welcome or thanks in the language of the Nation whose territory you live and work in that can go at the start or end of the English parent consent letter. If you need assistance please don’t hesitate to contact the HELP MDI Team.
