We thank our community for your patience with respect to Courtesy Transportation. Every year, we must account for how many students meet the requirements for transportation. Kindergarten students who live more than 1.0 km qualify for bussing and students from grades 1-8 need to be more than 1.6 km from school. Our school was planned to encourage walking and biking to school as most houses in our catchment are less than 1.6 km from Templemead. All additional applications are ‘Courtesy’ where we aim to assist families with transportation; however, there is no guarantee that we will be able to fulfill all requests.
We wish you a happy thanksgiving weekend and remind you that our school will be closed on Monday, October 9th. We are looking forward to the HWDSB Cross Country meet where we have approximately 95 runners participating. We had our first fire drill this week and the students were fantastic. Thank you to all of our teachers as we celebrate Teacher Appreciation Day and our caretakers who were recognized on Wednesday Oct. 4th.
Also a reminder to see our calendar for all upcoming events throughout the year.
