Change Your Child's Mode of Learning

 Change Your Child's Mode of Learning

Parents of elementary students who wish to change the mode of learning their children are currently using have until Oct. 19 to do so.

We are asking those parents to declare if they intend to change modes to either normal

in-school attendance or to at-home/remote learning by filling out the form below.


If you intend to keep your children in their current mode of learning, you do not need to fill out this form. No further action is required if you have no intention to change modes.

This form is for parents of elementary children only.

In the unlikely event that a pesticide spray treatment is to be applied inside our school building, our Catholic School Advisory Council as well as any other parent that has expressed a desire to be informed shall be notified prior to the application of the pesticide. 

 Please note:  The W.E.C.D.S.B. does not partake in the spraying of pesticides/herbicides at any time.  If you would like to be informed prior to the application of a pesticide please call the school.

A Letter from our Director of Education (WECDSB)


By now you may have heard that Ontario Premier Doug Ford announced today that schools will stay closed for the remainder of the school year.

You can read the full announcement here.

It is very important to note that online learning will continue for the remainder of the school year. Our teachers will continue to support students through the Continuity of Learning plan and students should remain engaged with their lessons until the school year ends.

As we have stated previously, students still have an opportunity to improve their marks before the end of the year and we would certainly encourage them to continue with their online learning and to take advantage of that opportunity.

Final report cards will be available for all students on June 23. 

Minister of Education Stephen Lecce said that a plan to safely reopen schools in September will be made public by the end of June. We will communicate more details about this plan as they become available.

In regards to obtaining personal possessions from schools, we will work with the Ministry of Education and our local health unit on developing plans so that students will be able to safely retrieve their personal items. More details will be available once that plan is finalized.


Terry Lyons
Director of Education
