Latest W.A.S News

Keep Updated

W.A.S is a "Nut Aware" School

Just a friendly reminder…W.A.S. is a Nut Aware School. We have some students and staff members who are allergic to nuts and/or peanuts. We encourage parents not to send these products to school, but if you forget, a room will be provided where students can eat their nut products, wash their hands, and then return to their regular classrooms. Thanks for your assistance in making W.A.S. a safe place for all of us.

Kindergarten and grade one bikes

All parents of kindergarten and grade one children need to be aware that children in this age group are not allowed to bring their bicycles to school. This rule is in place to ensure the safety and security of the children and applies to all K – Grade 1 students even if accompanied by a parent. We encourage parents to reinforce this rule at home and if they wish to accompany their children to school in the morning that they enjoy a nice walk together. Your cooperation is very much appreciated and will help keep the children safe.

Electronic Devices at School

As technology becomes more accessible, there has been an increase in students bringing handheld games, tablets, and/or cell phones to school. The presence of cameras and internet capability on some of these devices raises concerns of privacy, etc. At school we cannot guarantee the safety of these devices so we ask that parents play a role in determining the necessity of having these devices at school. If students bring them to school we ask that they remain discreetly in the student’s backpack or in a safe place determined by the students’ classroom teachers until after school.

There may be opportunities for students to use their own electronic devices in classrooms. If this happens, special arrangements will be made for such use, however, again, the school will not be responsible for loss or damage. No electronics will be allowed on the playground. Thank you for your cooperation

Parking

Just a friendly reminder to parents who are dropping off and picking up their children at school. Traffic can be very hectic around the school, and there is often little room to navigate. To ensure the safety of our children we ask that you please refrain from using the parking lots on the East and West sides of the school. We have designated the side streets of Herkimer Street, George Street, King Street as pick up areas. Students should use the crosswalks to access these streets. We thank you in advance for helping to make our school a safer place for all.
