Dear Parents and Caregivers,
On behalf of the staff at William Taylor Learning Centre, I would like to welcome all students and their families to the 2021-2022 school year. As a staff, we are incredibly excited to welcome back our students, and reconnect with our families, particularly given the events over the past several months.
One of the positives to emerge out of COVID-19 challenge is the importance of heart-felt connections and our genuine need to be connected to a strong and caring network. As a school community we have emerged from this period much stronger and closer than ever, and we look forward to welcoming our new all of our new students into a culture of caring and respect. WTLC is a place to belong.
Moving forward into the 2021-2022 school year, we will continue to be vigilant and flexible, putting student and staff safety and wellbeing at the forefront of our daily routines. We will continue to enact all necessary health and safety protocols that are provided to us through our partners at Alberta Health Services. It is important that families stay connected to the school by email for the latest information. Please provide our front office updated contact information so as not to miss important information.
Prior to the start of our school year, I would strongly encourage all parents/guardians to familiarize yourself with our Student Code of Conduct which is located on our website. The primary goal of the Student Code of Conduct is to create consistent messaging that supports, reinforces and enhances student learning.
Our first day of school Tuesday, August 17th. Classroom teams will contact each family prior to August 17th to go over all important back to school information.
Some reminders for a smooth start-up:
Please complete the daily check list to ensure your child is feeling well before they leave for school.
All staff and students are required to wear a mask.
Please be sure to contact the school regarding student absences and lates. Parent(s)/guardian(s) are reminded of the importance that regular attendance and punctuality have on long-term student academic growth and success.
Please make sure that your demographic information is up-to-date and correct so that the school can contact you in a timely manner.
In conclusion, we look forward to connecting with all our students and parent(s)/guardian(s) in the coming days and weeks as we begin our exciting 2021-2022 learning journey. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me or Cailean Duggan, Assistant Principal, throughout the course of the year.
Jennifer Edmondson-Neily, Principal and Cailean Duggan, Assistant Principal
