Hello to our WES families!

Welcome back!  Please read the important information below for our 2019/2020 school year start up:

ALL previous WES students are to attend their their last year's classroom for the first day of school.  Please pack your child a snack and have them bring a water bottle.  No lunch is needed this first day.  Those new students to our school will be given an orientation that morning.    

Classes only run from 8:35 am - 11:30 am on the first day back (Tuesday Sept 3).  Busses will be running this first day of school. If you have any questions pertaining to bussing, please contact WZ Operations Supervisor Brian Nickurak @ 250-342-6814.  We will not be providing Bus Passes until rider numbers are confirmed.  Bussing will be provided for bus/catchment students only until we are given further notice to accept passes.  Thank you.  

New Kindergarten Students/Families

Kindergarten parents/students: please refer to the September schedule sent home at the beginning of August.  The first day (Sept 3) for Kindie students is a Meet and Greet from 9 - 10 am for Kindie students and Parents.  Students will need to be picked up at 10 am.  The schedule for the following two weeks will be 8:30 - 12:00 (mornings only) for Kindie students.  Please also be aware of the CHEQ Survey meeting taking place on Friday September 6 @ 1:00 pm in our school library.  Only one parent is required to attend, but both are more than welcome if it can be scheduled.  If you cannot attend, Mr. Baron will be doing a follow up afterwards.  ​

Regular school hours will commence the second day of school (Wednesday Sept. 4).  Students will be greeted and directed to their new classroom this morning.  When classes are established, students will attend an opening Welcome Assembly to get the year started the following day, on Thursday September 5!  Please ensure your child has a snack and healthy lunch provided for this day and following days moving forward.  Please refrain from sending any nut-based foods to school as WES will remain a nut-free school moving forward.  Thank you.  ​​

If you have any more questions, please contact the school  at any time: 250-342-6640.  

We look forward to seeing everyone next week!!! ​​
