Fire Alarm Follow-Up – We wanted to provide you with some follow-up information regarding the recent fire alarm activation at our school. Over the weekend, the school board electricians were on-site diligently working to address the issue that caused the fire alarm to be activated. We understand that many of our students may have come home talking about their eventful day due to the alarm. Our dedicated staff was focused on our student’s well-being and did an amazing job during our time outside.  If you have any further questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to us.

Pink Shirt Day – On Wednesday, February 28, 2024, HWDSB students and staff will join together in recognizing Pink Shirt Day. Wearing a pink shirt is one small but powerful way for us to show that we are committed to recognizing bullying of all kinds and that it has no place in our schools and communities.  This year’s focus on Pink Shirt Day is centred around the theme of “lift each other up”.  At Winona, we will use this week to engage in classroom conversations, activities and school-wide announcements.  Visit the following links for more information regarding this day as well as resources for families.
