First Day of Classes
There is no staggered entry for the 2021-22 school year. The first day of school for all students will be Wednesday, September 1, 2021.
School Start and End Times
Our bell times are:
Soft start: 8:40-8:55
Doors will open at 8:40 am so students can enter the school upon arrival and go right to their classroom without having to line up at their entrance door. This will allow for social distancing at entry doors. Classes commence at 8:55 am.
Soft dismissal: 3:35 (dismissal bell 3:40)
We will be implementing a soft end to the day for Grades 1-6. This means that teachers will begin dismissing their classes (starting with older students) in a supervised, staggered manner to allow for social distancing while students meet up with their families.

All students are required to have a back pack and lunch bag (if you are part of the Noon Supervision program). Indoor shoes are brought to school the first day of school and left at school. Many backpacks and shoes look alike; please label all student possessions.
In order to eat lunch at school in our lunchroom program, all students must be registered. For more specific information as to cost and registration procedures, please see our Noon Supervision page.
Registration and payment can be done through MyCBE/PowerSchool account.
Woodbine School operates a four-day lunchroom program for all students from Grades 1 - 6.
Please remember to call our lunchroom line to report a child’s absence/drop-in at
403-777-8630 extension 2.
Woodbine School operates a “Peanut-Aware” lunchroom. We discourage peanut products in the lunchroom but cannot guarantee a “peanut free” environment. Please let us know if your child has food allergies and requires support. For more information on how to deal with allergies, please see our Illness and Medical page.
Snacks and lunches should be easy for children to manage. Hot water and microwaves are not accessible for students.
During lunch recess, supervision is provided for students attending the lunch program. Students who go home for lunch should return no more than 5 minutes prior to the 1:00 pm entry bell and line up with their class to re-enter school.
On Monday, August 30, by end of day, teachers will be e-mailing families to let you know whose class your child has been assigned to.
Our School Office opens on Friday Aug. 27, 2021.
Please visit our How to Register page for registration details and forms.
