I know nothing about vaping … can children buy these at the store - is there an age limit?
Michelle Warren (she/her)
01:04:17
Same rules as tobacco. You can buy them at convenience stores or vape shops. They are supposed to present ID to purchase.

But obvivously this isn't happening if this is an issue in high schools
Angie Law (she/her)
01:07:00
And they're cheaper than cigarettes - yes?
Rebecca Clare
01:07:34
I find the advice of ASK/SHARE/ASK very helpful. I tend to be critical in these situations and need to be more approachable with my kids.
Jeremy Ng (he/him) - TDSB Social Worker
01:09:42
thanks Rebecca. I think we all need those reminders to take a breathe and listen.
Lucy .F
01:10:27
John, I’ve heard that girls vape in order to lose weight. What’s the best approach for this situation?
L Dang
01:13:29
How bad is second hand vape smoke? Especially for kids breathing it in at school (in bathrooms/hallways)?
Angie Law (she/her)
01:16:19
So helpful - thank you so much!
Michelle Warren (she/her)
01:16:38
Thank you.
Rebecca Clare
01:16:42
Thank you very much!
Alisa
01:31:26
Do you mean the hallway entrance or the stalls?
Alisa
01:32:04
What purpose does removing the doors have if you can’t see into the room?
Angie Law (she/her)
01:40:53
Sorry - when is course selection due?
Michelle Warren (she/her)
01:42:57
How do you register for a ChromeBook?
Michelle Warren (she/her)
01:47:43
Is Friday a full day of classes for Semester 1?
Au, John

Rebecca Clare
02:10:43
I am fine either way
Lucy .F
02:11:26
In previous years, School Council didn’t meet every month. But if we are meeting every month, perhaps a shorter meeting would be okay?
Nadia S.
02:12:10
1.5hr is great! Perhaps use two hours if there are special guests?
Angie Law (she/her)
02:12:54
I like that idea, Nadia!
Rahul sharma
02:13:06
I think I heard the issue is the start/end times… at present they are in between
Rahul sharma
02:13:26
I would support a later start, but ok if it goes 2 hours or as required
Angie Law (she/her)
02:13:47
That, too, but shorter is also appreciated.
Marsha Dzieciol
02:14:21
I agree the timing is bad. 7-9 would be better if it needs to be 2 hours but 1.5 hours would be greatly appreciated as time in the evening is limited.
Rahul sharma
02:14:59
👍🏿
April Moon
02:15:02
I like the opportunity to have hybrid offered. I like 2 hours with a presentation or 1.5 without.
Rebecca Clare
02:16:15
Virtual! I appreciate the recording so if I need to leave the mtg early I can listen to the recording.
Michelle Warren (she/her)
02:16:16
Hybrid is great. And I am okay with the longer meetings for presentations. Really depends on what is happening.
Angie Law (she/her)
02:16:21
I agree with April
Rebecca Clare
02:16:48
I like mthly
Angie Law (she/her)
02:17:19
I agree with monthly as well
April Moon
02:18:01
I like monthly but only because my current RCI students do not share info and this is where I get the info to support them. My previous RCI grad would share with me all activities I may need to be updated with
L Dang
02:18:42
Jen Volk suggests: 6:30 to 8:30 if we have a special guest. For "regular meetings", we could meet 7:00 to 8:30. Hybrid option.
Nadia S.
02:18:47
Hybrid. Monthly. 1.5hr without guests. 2hr with guests.
Rebecca Clare
02:18:53
I have the same situation as April
Angie Law (she/her)
02:19:26
I agree with Jen
Michelle Warren (she/her)
02:19:36
Thank you. I have to sign off.
Rahul sharma
02:19:41
Hybrid monthly, 1.5 to 2 hours
Rahul sharma
02:20:07
I prefer a 7pm start
Rahul sharma
02:20:18
yes
Marsha Dzieciol
02:20:58
Sounds good. I like 7pm start either way.
Angie Law (she/her)
02:38:41
Thanks, good night!
