Change in Bell Times for 2019-2020 School Year

posted Jun 3, 2019, 6:07 AM by Gary Levante

Dear Families at Robert Baldwin Public School:


I am writing to inform you of a change to the Robert Baldwin Public School schedule beginning in September 2019.  


Entry and dismissal bells for the 2019-2020 school year will be as follows:


Entry bell:   8:55 a.m.

Dismissal bell: 3:15 p.m.


Supervision will begin at 8:40 p.m.


This adjustment to our school hours is a result of the Halton Student Transportation Services (HSTS) efficiency review.  Bus routes for numerous schools in Halton have changed. These route efficiencies will result in significant cost savings in school bus transportation for the Halton District School Board.


Thank you for your support.  



Sincerely,  



Gary Levante, Principal  

Robert Baldwin Public School

Hello Robert Baldwin Families

On March 21, people with Down syndrome and those who live and work with them throughout the world organize and participate in events to raise public awareness. They create a single global voice for advocating for the rights, inclusion and well being of people with Down syndrome.

To celebrate World Down syndrome Day Thursday, March 21, Robert Baldwin will be having crazy sock day. Also, on Thursday please consider bringing a loonie to purchase a Down syndrome bracelet.

Lockdown Rehearsal on Wednesday

posted Jan 21, 2019, 11:43 AM by Gary Levante   [ updated Jan 21, 2019, 11:43 AM ]

Dear Robert Baldwin Families,


Each semester, as part of our Safety Plan, every school in the Halton District School Board conducts 3 fire drills and 2 lockdown rehearsals. These planned drills and rehearsals are important in ensuring that staff and students are aware of how to appropriately respond in the event of a real emergency. If any deficiencies or problems are noted, then changes are made to the plan.


We will be conducting a lockdown rehearsal this Wednesday January 23rd, 2019 at approximately 12:15 PM.


The lockdown rehearsal will last approximately 20 minutes. During that time, staff and students will be in ‘lockdown’ mode (classroom doors locked, lights off, students sitting on the floor).


Access to the school by visitors WILL NOT be available during the time of the lockdown rehearsal. Also, our secretaries will not be able to answer phone calls until the rehearsal is completed.


As School Principal, I will direct staff and students to resume normal school activities once the lockdown rehearsal is complete. These types of training exercises help to ensure that staff, students and police are ready to respond appropriately in the event of a real emergency.


If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me ~ Gary Levante (Principal) ~ levanteg@hdsb.ca or 905-878-8833.


Thank you for your anticipated understanding.
