First Day of Classes
Our first day of classes is Tuesday, Sept. 1, 2020 and the school office is open to parents starting on Thursday, Aug. 27, 2020 at 8:30 AM.
Take a virtual walk with us around some of the main areas of the school to give you a sense of what things look like at Woodman.
Staggered Entry Days – Tues. Sept. 1, Wed. Sept. 2 and Thurs. Sept. 3
Notwithstanding all of the nervous energy that the return to classes creates (especially this year), I am confident that if we are calm and clear in communicating health protocols, students will be well positioned to remain safe, healthy and happy while at school. As such, we have decided to create three days of staggered entry, in which smaller groups of students come to school to learn more about some of the changes they will experience this year. Students will report to school for one day of staggered entry, as follows:
Tues. Sept. 1, 9:05-3:40 Grade 5, Grade 6, and Grade 9 students only
Wed. Sept. 2, 9:05-3:40 Grade 7 students only
Thurs. Sept. 3, 9:05-3:40 Grade 8 students only
Fri. Sept. 4, 9:05-1:30 All students
School Start & End Times
Our bell times are:
- Warning bell 9:05 AM
- Monday to Thursday 9:10 AM - 3:40 PM
- Fridays 9:10 AM - 1:30 PM (Early Dismissal)
We are a school that follows the traditional calendar. View our School Calendar.

Grade 5 & 6 students will eat in the lunchroom, monitored by lunchroom supervisors, and followed by outdoor play.
Woodman School is an open campus for Grade 7-9 students.
School Supply Lists
Please see the following links with suggested student supply lists that will be helpful to reference in preparation for the return to classes. It is not required that students come to school on the first day with all of these items. Families are encouraged to recycle materials from previous years. Those who are unable to bring their own suggested supplies will be provided them by the school, while following health protocols. Every attempt is being made to reduce the sharing of materials. Please ensure that personal supplies are well labelled with the student name and grade.
