Courtesy Transportation – IMPORTANT!
Students who do not qualify for Board approved busing must apply for “Courtesy Bus Transportation” every school year. Forms are at the school office and should be completed before the end of the year. Only once permission has been granted by administration in writing, may the child use the bus service. Courtesy busing will be up to the discretion of the administration and be based upon age of child, needs, and spaces available. Courtesy bus riders must apply and re-apply every year. Please note that bus eligibility changes from Kindergarten to Grades 1 to 5. Also please note that students may not get on a bus if they have not received courtesy busing or are a registered rider.
Absence and Early Vacations
To ensure safe arrival to school, and to eliminate delays in phone calls in getting in touch with parents, we ask that you please keep us informed if your child will be absent due to illness, an appointment, vacation plans, etc. Our phone lines are open 24-hours a day, and you can leave a detailed voicemail message at any time by calling (905) 561-0814. (Please note that if you are calling regarding your child’s absence due to sickness, please inform us if he/she has a fever. In our attendance system, we keep track of fevers vs a “cold”.) We thank you for cooperation!
September Bus Information
Information about the bus stop location, bus number, and departure / arrival times will be mailed to you from the Transportation Department in August. If you do not receive your letter by the end of August, please contact the Transportation Department at (905) 523-2318.

Kindergarten Registration Has Already Begun
Kindergarten registration has already started for families with children entering either Junior Kindergarten (born in 2015) or Senior Kindergarten (born in 2014 who are not presently attending school). For your convenience, we have attached a copy of the registration form, and have posted a copy on our website http://www.hwdsb.on.ca/sirisaacbrock/ so it may be printed and filled out before you come to the school. In addition to the completed registration form, the child’s birth certificate (or proof of birth), immunization information, and proof of address (hydro bill, lease, mortgage, etc.) will be needed to complete the process. Please share this information with your neighbours as well as families new to the community. For those who would like to know more about the Kindergarten program, an information evening will take place on Wednesday, May 22nd from 4:00 until 5:00 p.m. **Please Note – students already attending Junior Kindergarten do not need to re-register for next year.** For more information regarding kindergarten, please feel free to visit http://www.hwdsb.on.ca/kindergarten/.
