NOW’S THE TIME!! Kindergarten Registration is STILL OPEN! Sign up for School Today!!

Several years ago, the WCDSB established a very easy-to-use online pre-registration portal to make the registration process as convenient as possible.

Parents of children scheduled to begin JK in September 2020, are encouraged to complete the pre-registration process as soon as possible.

There will still need to be some in-person contact with the school, but that will be handled at an appropriate time after the COVID-19 crisis has passed.

For non-Catholic families wishing to register in a WCDSB elementary school, your school Principal will reach out to you to complete the required interview process – again – at an appropriate time in in the most appropriate manner, including via phone.

Important Information Re: Availability of COVID-19 Testing

Dear Parents / Caregivers:

The well-being of all members of our WCDSB community — including students, families, and staff — is a top priority for our school board. We are writing to let you know that COVID-19 testing is now available to any Ontarian who needs it.

Ontario’s testing guidance now indicates that you should visit one of Waterloo Region’s Assessment Centers if you:

  • have at least one of the symptoms of COVID-19
  • do not have symptoms but are concerned you might have been exposed
  • do not have symptoms but think you are at risk through your employment (for example, if you are an essential or health care worker)
  • would like to be tested

If you do choose to get tested, here are a few important notes:

  • Testing is voluntary.
  • You do not need an OHIP card to be tested. It is a free service.
  • Some assessment centres may require you to book an appointment first or have certain restrictions (for example, some are unable to test young children).
  • You can also take an online self-assessment to help determine if you should get tested.
  • If you are free of symptoms and have not had contact with anyone confirmed to have COVID-19 when presenting for testing, you will not be required to self-isolate. However, you should self-monitor for symptoms for 14 days regardless of your test result. If you begin to develop symptoms, self-isolate and contact your local public health unit for further advice.

Local information about COVID-19 is available from Region of Waterloo Public Health.
