RE: Class Reorganization
This school year has presented unique challenges to Ontario schools, as well as new options for students to learn in-person or remotely.
Each fall, HWDSB reviews elementary student enrolment in schools, and reorganizes staffing if actual enrolment differs from spring projections. It is normal for student enrolment to fluctuate a little.
This year, the fall reorganization is more widespread due to the in-person/remote option for students, as well as the ongoing need to meet provincial class size requirements.
Specifically, at our school, the reorganization will mean:
- Closing the following classes: 8B Mme Hairston, 6A Mme Montpetit (Martin), 3/4B Mme Daniel and 1D Mme Margariti
- 3/4A is becoming a straight grade 3 class (3B – Mme Bechard)
- Mme Margariti is moving to a NEW Grade 3, Mme Long is moving to the NEW Grade 6/7 class
- Mme Thompson is returning from the Remote School to a NEW grade 4 class (4C)
- Mme Houshmandi will be joining our staff team. She will be teaching 4A (Mme Lardi – LTO for Mme Amedeo)
- The following teachers are leaving the school: Manduwa Daniel, Hilary Hairston, Nicole Lardi, Kaitlyn Martin Montpetit, Karlee Terziev. Also leaving due to surplus from September include Tristan Bullard .7, Julie McCluskey, Lindsay MacMaster
- Mme Anderson has been reduced to .4 at Norwood Park
