Principal's Message

Happy Summer!

Dear WDS families
We wish you a safe and relaxing summer break!  We enjoyed the WDS Porch Parade yesterday and were so delighted to see the students and other members of our community!  While on Summer break for the next 8 weeks, we have many people in the CBE that will be working hard to make sure our school is safe to welcome back staff and students. The CBE task force continues its work on our planning for what the next school year will look like in our school. We will have more information in August after the Minister announces the re-entry scenario schools will follow for September.
Regardless of the re-entry decision, we know that things will look a bit different in our school in September. While we cannot eliminate all COVID-19 risks, we will implement measures to minimize risk. This includes:
Where possible, creating cohorts or groups of students and teachers who will stay together throughout the day;
Increasing the frequency of cleaning and disinfection of high-touch areas and equipment;
Identifying ways to engage in valuable courses where additional health protocols must be followed (e.g. physical education, music classes) and ensuring cleaning of equipment that may be shared by multiple students (e.g. computers, gym equipment)
Creating regular routines to support hand hygiene and coughing/sneezing etiquette;
Enforcing a strict illness policy. Anyone showing signs of sickness will not be allowed on buses or in schools. This means families will need to ensure they have back-up childcare available if their child is unable to attend school;
Changing pick-up and drop-off routines for parents to support physical distancing student safety while entering or exiting the building;
Developing new procedures for students using yellow school buses, including assigned seating and how students get on and off the bus; and
 
Organizing and planning to apply protocols and online instruction allowing us to move between different scenarios if required.
Once again, thank you for all your trust and support.  We can hardly wait to see our students in person again!
 Maria Spagnolo
