Welcome Back to Helen Detwiler & COVID-19 Action Site Plan
Dear Helen Detwiler families,
We are excited to welcome students back to classes – in person and through remote learning – to the 2021-22 school year. The last year was an unusual in many ways, and we know families may be feeling anxious about returning to classes this September.
We appreciate that families may have a lot of questions as they prepare to send their children back to classes and are committed to sharing updates as we receive new information. We also invite families to keep up with communications from HWDSB by subscribing to email updates or following @hwdsb on social media or subscribing to the Helen Detwiler school website by clicking here.
At this time, we would like to announce a few staff changes. We want to wish Ms. Bibi Sahib well as she moves into her retirement, and also wish Ms. Johnston all the best in her new journey. For an updated staff list, please check out the Staff tab on our school website.
A friendly reminder that the first day of school will be Wednesday, September 8. We understand that this falls on the last day of Rosh Hashanah, and will be working directly with families who require accommodation for this day. Please reach out to the school if you have any questions. Our Kindergarten students first day is on Thursday, September 9th.
We know that safety is on the minds of every family sending their child/ren back to school. We are taking many actions to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in our classes while giving our students meaningful experiences which focus on both their physical and emotional well-being. Specific information on how we are keeping our community safe here at Helen Detwiler can be found in our COVID-19 Action Site Plan. Please click the link below to review this information prior to the first day of school.
We will continue to send updates as we receive added information and thank you for being proactive in following communications from HWDSB.

If you have any questions or wish to reach out, please contact me at the school.
Mr. M. Azzopardi
