From the Office

Chag Sameach to all our Wilshire Families observing Shavuot this weekend. If your child is going to be away, please be sure to add the absence into EDSBY so our office team won’t disturb you with our Safe Arrivals Procedure on Monday.

Wilshire ES is happy to welcome Dr. Bisleen Attli on June 14th. She is a Naturopathic Doctor and Wellness Coach and will be facilitating workshops for our Gr. 1-3, Gr. 4-6 and Gr. 7-8 students.

Thursday, June 30, 2022 – Early Dismissal in Elementary Schools

All schools in the York Region District School Board are committed to improving student achievement and well-being.  On Thursday, June 30, 2022, an early release day will take place to allow elementary teachers and support staff to take part in meetings during the afternoon of that day.  These meetings will allow for school staff to engage in culminating activities regarding the review and revision of the School’s Improvement Plan as well as year-end and transition activities that support student success. 

As has been our practice in the past, students will attend school during the morning of Thursday, June 30, 2022 only.  Students will be dismissed early that day at 11:30 a.m.  Arrangements will be made to ensure that students who are normally bussed to and from school will receive transportation at this time.  Parents/guardians whose children attend after school child care should make appropriate arrangements to address this change in schedule.

Next Year!
