Three grade nine West Ferris Secondary School student FIRST Robotics team members and their dads have been working for the last month on prototyping their design for a UV sterilization cart. They are hoping to engage more team members and other FIRST teams around the world. The team has been awarded a grant to further develop and expand their idea!
Hello Trojan Families:
During school closures due to COVID-19 the Near North District School Board will be accepting school registrations through an online application process.
The online registration package is available for families registering their children for school with the Near North District School Board. Children turning 4 years of age on or before December 31st of the current year and students who are new to the Near North District School Board can access the online Registration Form. Please access the Near North District School Board’s website and click on the ‘Our Schools’ tab and then click on the ‘How do I register’ tab. Schools will contact families to confirm receipt of the registration form.
Find your zoned school using the Eligibility Query School Locator prior to completing the registration packages also located on the Near North District School Board’s website.
Please note: The information entered on the online registration form cannot be saved therefore, the online registration MUST be completed in one sitting. Please expect to spend 20-30 minutes completing the online registration form. Fields that are not applicable to you or for which you don’t have the information can be left blank.
The Near North DSB has a plan to support student mental health. Below is a link to a website outlining details. If you need immediate help please see our previous post with 24 hour options.
We know these unprecedented times can be stressful. Our teachers and principals are working with school board administrators and the Ministry of Education to develop and implement a plan that is best for students. Please remember that the school remains closed to everyone until further notice.
For now, the Ministry of Education has provided resources for students to access during this phase.
Remember to visit the NNDSB website for regular updates and information: https://nearnorthschools.ca
As we receive information, we will post.
Stay safe, stay home!
