Your child’s first day at school is around the corner!
Each May, HWDSB’s elementary schools welcome families and children to kindergarten. This is a great opportunity to connect with the kindergarten team and to learn more about the kindergarten program. In a normal year, kindergarten orientation events are an opportunity for you to visit your child’s classroom. We are preparing digital supports and other outreach during this challenging time.
