Provincial Polling Station at Wilshire E.S. on Thursday, June 7th

We’d like to share with our community that our school will serve as a polling station for the upcoming Provincial Election on Thursday, June 7th, 2018.

We are pleased to host members of our community who will come to vote at our school.  It provides a great opportunity to discuss the democratic process with students. We would encourage you to talk to your children about the important role voting plays in our democratic society.

As we will have community members attending our school to vote, you may see increased traffic around the school, as well as reduced parking in the area. We will be doing everything possible to minimize disruptions. We appreciate your understanding.  If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact the school.

How to Report Absences Online via Edsby

EdsbyDid you know that parents and guardians can use Edsby to report a child absent?  If you have activated your Edsby account, you can login to Edsby and report your child’s absence online.  You can access an online video tutorial to learn more about how to do this.

You will have received an invitation email from the York Region District School Board to create an Edsby account earlier in the year.  Please contact the school office if you would like to have an invitation reissued.

Regular and punctual attendance affects school success and is expected of all students. It is important that students, families and school staff work together to ensure regular attendance.  Please remember you are required to notify the school as soon as possible if your child will be absent or late.  Families can still continue to report absences by phone at 905-889-5112

Our thanks for your support.
