We are so excited to announce that the Scholastic Book Fair is coming to Westdale, live and in-person for our students October 19-22!

Students will visit the library with their class to purchase books

This year, since parents/guardians will still be unable to attend the book fair, we will also receive a virtual link that we will send to them so they can use to make the purchases at home.

If parents order online, books will be sent to the school and we will arrange for pick-up or will send the books home directly with students.

More information will come out through your child's teacher next week.

Thanks for your continued support! All proceeds and credits from Scholastics will help purchase reading material and books for our library and classrooms.

PARENT SCREENING AGREEMENT (School Cash ONLINE, sent home first day)

You will be receiving a Parent Screening Agreement.

This can be completed through School Cash ONLINE. Please attend to this promptly.


Please bring any technology loaned to you during the At Home Learning to school on the first day and hand it in to the homeroom teacher or office.


Many of our enhanced health and safety procedures are outlined in the Parent Guide. For any specific COVID-19 support, please contact the Niagara Public Health Hotline at 905-688-8248 or 1-888-505-6074, press 7.


You will still receive Verification Forms and Prevalent Medical Forms on the first day of school.

We will be posting Permission to Participate, Parent Screening Agreement and other forms on School Cash Online.

Be sure to have your account set up. This will reduce the amount of paper going between home and school. You will be able to sign up right on line! If you are not yet set-up, please do so ASAP or contact us if you need assistance.


To support the safe reopening of schools, the DSBN has made upgrades to improve ventilation infrastructure in our schools. All major ventilation projects will be complete for the start of school. However, Westdale is still undergoing extensive upgrades and will continue well into the Winter. Please know that we are working to ensure your child’s class is safe despite some intermittent movement to accommodate our HVAC renovations.

Ventilation systems in all schools are frequently inspected and are in good working order. We will continue your inspections and maintenance throughout the year. For any occupied learning environments in parts of schools without mechanical ventilation, we will have stand alone HEPA units in place. As an additional health and safety measure and to recognize that JK/SK students are not required to be masked in the classroom all kindergarten classrooms and full day daycare spaces will have stand alone HEPA units regardless if there is mechanical ventilation.
