Dear Wilshire Elementary School Families,
Happy New Year to all our families. I hope this message finds you refreshed, rejuvenated and ready for a new year. I would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a safe, happy and healthy new year!
Thank you to our students and staff for giving me a warm welcome on my first visit to Wilshire Elementary School in December. Mr. Barlow has been wonderful in sharing the warmth of the school community through this transition. It is clear that the students, staff and families at Wilshire are committed to creating a caring, inclusive learning environment and I’m excited to join the team. Over the next weeks, I look forward to getting to know you, your child and the staff at Wilshire ES.
On January 4, your child’s teacher will connect with you with information about asynchronous (online learning activities) and synchronous (live) online learning. For those families who have requested a Chromebook in order to access online learning, we will be in touch on January 4th, 2021 with a pick-up time at the school.
As you are aware, the Ontario Ministry of Education has announced that following the winter break, all Ontario schools will be closed to elementary students until January 11th, 2021. During this period, students will participate in online learning. This is in an effort to reduce the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Please review the message below from our Board sent out to families on December 30th, 2020. We will continue to share updates and information with you as it becomes available.
Your partner in learning,
(and this is me, the unmasked version!)
