    Please remember that school begins at 8:55 a.m. and at 12:55 p.m. and arrival times are very important to the childrens safety and adjustment to classroom learning. Children who arrive on the playgrounds before 8:40 a.m. and 12:40 p.m. do so without benefit of school patrols or adult supervision. Let us do everything we can to ensure every childs safety.


    Please make sure you send your childs lunch with them each and every morning. If you need to drop off a lunch for your child please make sure you tell them that it will be waiting for them in the office. The Office will no longer interrupt classes for late lunch drop offs. ALL lunches MUST have their name on it. We will NOT accept unmarked lunches in the Office.

    BREAKFAST PROGRAM Wellington School offers a breakfast

    program each school day for

    students. Beginning at 8:15 students

    may enter the school by the Gym

    doors and come to the Multi Purpose

    room. They will be provided with a

    breakfast and milk or juice.

    Breakfast is served from 8:15 8:45

    a.m. Monday to Friday during school



    We encourage all families to

    make lunch and after school supervision arrangements

    with your children before they leave home. Our office

    s o m e t i m e s b e c o m e s overloaded with these kinds of

    calls and we are concerned that messages may get

    delivered too late. Of course,

    you would continue to make such calls when unforeseen

    emergencies occur.

    We are pleased to inform you that in keeping with maintaining a safe

    learning environment, surveillance cameras have been installed at strategic

    locations in our building. This will assist us in monitoring intruders on the

    grounds and in the building.

    We would like to stress the importance of daily attendance for all

    students. Attending school regularly and on time is the most important

    factor in a students success. At this time of year it helps students develop

    routines and become engaged learners in their classrooms. The Winnipeg

    School Division has the services of an Attendance Officer Mr. Doug Yuel,

    who is available to help support students getting to school. Should your child

    need to be away from school, we ask that you call the school and inform the

    office at 774 8085.

    Each day the Office will call all students who are away from school

    unless we have received a call from home explaining the absence.

    Let us work together to ensure all students are in school daily and on

    time to receive their education and develop to their full potential.

    To celebrate our first month of good attendance all students at school on Tuesday, September 30th will enjoy a pancake breakfast.
