Happy Labour Day and First Day of School!

Wishing all our WPS family community a Happy Labour Day!  We hope you enjoy the day with your family and friends.

We are looking forward to seeing your children back to school on Tuesday morning bright and early. Staff will meet them in the back yard of the school and class lists will be called out at 8:30 a.m.

We know that the first day of school is an exciting time and many of you like to escort your children to school on the first day. For safety reasons and to make things run smoother for your children, we remind you that parents will not be allowed to enter the school and are asked to say goodbye at the back doors once class lists have been called. 

Besides this, please plan to regularly use our Kiss 'n Ride program in our front drive way area. We have designated staff supervising safe traffic for all students and ready to escort our kindergarten children to their doors. Please remember NOT to park in this Kiss 'n Ride area even for a few minutes to take your children into school. Doing so, quickly creates a pile up and safety hazard in the mornings. If you want to wait with your children you MUST park in the front parking area, the first 13 parking spots, or on the street. Please also do not park in the back parking spots reserved for staff.

Please notice the new signage provided by our bylaw enforcers. The driveway in front of our school entrance is a Fire Route and a No Entry zone allowing only for School Buses. Please respect our bylaws and safety precautions to ensure the safety of all our children.

Thank you for your cooperations. We look forward to a happy, stress-free morning drop offs this year.

Oshogatsu (January 1-3) is an important festival for many Japanese people. Some gather with friends and families to say good-bye to the old year at forgetting parties.
