Most sincerely, we hope this message finds you and your family in good health.
Please accept this message of thanks for all you've done to support your child's continuity of learning. We remain amazed and appreciative of how you've found a way to help us re-envision learning during this period of school closure.
Your perseverance and patience is truly appreciated. We are connecting with parents everyday and we continue to be grateful for your amazing partnership. We know that the news of continued school closure brings about many questions. We are here for you! Please reach out to your child's teacher or to the office, if there is a way we can support your family.
We've heard from you about your child's personal belongings. We know you are eager to reconnect your child with these items. We are eager to provide you with these belongings too. At this time, we await further direction regarding this protocol. Schools remain under emergency order and special approvals and processes are required in these circumstances. As such, our Board is working to develop a plan for accessing student belongings. This will be communicated to you as soon as it is available. In the meantime, if the need to access belongings is an emergency or urgent, please contact your child's teacher or call the office and leave a voicemail. If it is not urgent, we respectfully ask for you to wait for the protocol to be approved and communicated. We are thankful for your continued partnership and patience!
Mostly, we are thankful for you and the remarkable effort you've exerted to support your child(ren)'s learning - social, emotional, physical and academic pursuits, during this period of closure. It's not an easy job and we recognize you are managing extraordinary circumstances.
We miss our students and their families and we are very excited about the time when it is safe for our paths to cross again.
Take care, Mrs. Amanda Meighan
Good afternoon Woodland Families!
As we head into the May Long Weekend, we hope you are all healthy and safe. We wanted to let you know a few things. First, you are doing a great job! We are growing in our abilities with Online Learning. Parents, students and staff have been working really hard together to ensure that each of our students are learning in the best way that they can!! WAY TO GO LYNX!
Second, if you have a child who will be turning 4 by December 31, 2020 or you know of a family who does in our neighbourhood, the NNDSB currently has registration for Kindergarten online. Woodland P.S. is a great place to learn and grow. Join us! 💛 Please share with families and friends:
Kindergarten Registration Now Available Online
During school closures due to COVID-19, the Near North District School Board will be accepting school registrations through an online application process.
Please visit our registration page for more information.
Lastly, as more information is pending from the Minister of Education next week, we will update you as soon as we are aware of anything. Again, take care, enjoy your family - and most of all, STAY SAFE!!

Greetings Woodland Lynx Students and Parents!
We hope that everyone is well and taking care of themselves and their families during these unusual times. As of Monday April 6th, 2020, we have begun the next phase of learning at home for our Elementary students – JK to Grade 6. You should have started to receive lessons (either via email or Edsby) from your child’s teacher to support them through this phase. Our staff have been working over the last two weeks to find solutions to the many challenges that Covid 19 presents to our schools and our students and their families. Please know that we do not have all the answers as of yet and we are working diligently at finding the best ways to support all of our students.
We continue to miss you and are hoping that you are feeling better reaching out to your teachers this week. We also know that this situation with Covid-19 may be creating some additional stress for you and your families. Please know we want to continue to support you with your mental health. The following link will provide you with trained people to help. This “check-in” will support students who have previously received counselling at Woodland but also those of you and your families that have new mental health needs and are not connected to a counsellor.
Please go to: https://www.nearnorthschools.ca/we-are-here-to-help/ and do take care.
As already noted on our Facebook page, we ask that our families go the the Near North District School Board website for the most up to date information regarding the Corona Virus.
Be well, be safe.
Amanda Meighan, Principal
Michelle Passmore, Acting Vice Principal
