First Day of School Information

First Day of School Information

First Day / School Opening Information

 We hope that this note helps ease your transition into our school and / or the new school year.

The first day of school for students is Tuesday September 8th, 2015

What will happen on the first day of school? - Here is some information to help make the first day go as smoothly as possible. On the first day, if your child takes the bus, he or she will be greeted by teachers. Teachers will meet students on the blacktop and will be holding signs displaying their names. Staff will help every student find their new teacher. If they cannot remember their teacher's name, they should ask any staff member. Students should join the line-up of their assigned teacher.

If you choose to accompany your child to school, you can look for your child's teacher who will be on the blacktop carrying a sign with his or her name on it. If you are unsure of your child's teacher's name, please ask any staff member. They will have lists of this information and will be able to guide you to the correct class line-up. Students should join the line-up of their assigned teacher.

If you choose to drive, please note that the parking lot across the street is very busy on this day so it is a good idea to arrive a bit early. The playground is supervised by staff beginning at 8:55am.

Nutrition Break and Snacks—It is a requirement that the lunch you provide your child to enjoy at school is nut-free, as we have a number of anaphylactic children in the building with severe food allergies. There are 2 nutrition breaks as noted above. Typically the first nutrition break is used to eat lunch and the second break is used for snack.

Footwear—We require our students to have a pair of "indoor" shoes that they can leave at school. This is especially important in the winter months.

Volunteering—Volunteering is a great way to meet other parents and to get to know the daily activities at the school. If you would like to volunteer at Whiteoaks you will need to have a Criminal Record check completed by the Peel Regional Police Department. You are encouraged to come in to Whiteoaks to receive the 2 required forms.  One form requires the principals' signature.   Note that it can take up to 6 weeks to process your criminal record check application. 

We are looking forward to seeing you on September 8th!

Letter from Director of Education Tony Pontes re: updated Health and Physical Education curriculum

At the Peel District School Board, we know that families play a vital role in supporting student success. Like you, we feel there is nothing more important than the health and safety of our students. For this reason, the Peel board strongly supports the need for an updated Health & Physical Education (HPE) curriculum.

Parent resources help you support your child’s learning

Parent resources help you support your child’s learning

In October 2014, the Peel District School Board sought input from families to help guide the development of resources that help parents and caregivers support their children's learning. The result is a new Help Your Child online resource centre on the Peel board's website with the topics families said were important to them. ​​
