Orange Shirt Day Thursday October 1st, 2020

Orange Shirt Day at Woodville E.S will be held on October 1, 2020. It is a day when we honour the Indigenous children who were sent away to residential schools in Canada and learn more about the history of those schools.

Why an “Orange Shirt”?

The “orange shirt” in Orange Shirt Day refers to the new shirt that Phyllis Webstad was given to her by her grandmother for her first day of school at St. Joseph’s Mission residential school in British Columbia. When Phyllis got to school, they took away her clothes, including her new shirt. It was never returned. To Phyllis, the colour orange has always reminded her of her experiences at residential school and, as she has said, “how my feelings didn’t matter, how no one cared and I felt like I was worth nothing. All of us little children were crying and no one cared.”

School Closures Extended

Dear Parents/Guardians;

I am writing to you today to confirm the news from the Minister of Education that our school will remain closed until at least May 4, 2020 as part of the provincial effort to stop the spread of the COVID-19. 

We have been working with the school board on a plan so that learning can continue while students are at home. Information about the “TLDSB [email protected] plan may be found on the TLDSB website. Information will continue to be added to this page so please check back regularly.

We want to be sure that our at home learning plan is as successful for your child as possible. Please take a few minutes to complete a short survey which will be sent to you by your child’s teacher. Once we have gathered this information our teachers will be able to select delivery methods that meet the needs of individual learners and the resources families have available.

I know this is a very stressful time for all members of our school community right now – our students, our staff, and their families. Your well-being must continue to be your first priority. Please reach out to your child’s teacher or to myself ([email protected]) if you have any questions or concerns.
