Busing information from STWDSTS

The staff at Wellington-Dufferin Student Transportations services will be planning new, efficient routes over the summer. Since transportation is not finalized until late August, information for individual students is not available by phone. Information will be available through the following means:

  • If your child is new to the Ontario school system, has been registered at a school prior to the end of June, and is eligible for transportation under our policies, transportation information will be mailed to your mailing address on August 24, 2015.
  • If you are new to the area, transportation cannot be arranged until your child is registered at a school, and may then take a further two weeks to be finalized. Note that elementary schools are closed over the summer until August 31, 2015. Please ask about transportation when registering your child.
  • If your child is an existing student, go to www.findmyschool.ca and login to this secure site with your child’s OEN number (located on report card), school name and house number. This will not be available until after August 24, 2015.

For more information about school bus transportation visit www.stwdsts.ca. Beginning in August you can also follow on Twitter @STWDSTS

Mental Health Resources

 Permanent link

The shift from the school year to summer break can be challenging for some students,
particularly those children and youth who experience mental health concerns or have 
experienced grief or trauma. The supports provided at school are missing in the summer and 
can leave a gap in a child or youth’s life. 
If you notice changes in your child or youth, such as: an increase in isolation/withdrawal from friends or 
activities; increase in anxiety, sadness, anger or aggression; increase in substance use; feelings of 
hopelessness or helplessness; or other changes in mental health, please seek out mental health or 
addiction supports for your child/youth.

If your child or youth is in immediate danger, call 911.

At the semi-formal event held at the ROM in Toronto, 12 video awards were handed out to Ontario students. Skip won for best original score. With the trophy, Skip also received a cheque for $2500 and the school got $500 to go towards video producing equipment. CWDHS student Rachel R. helped Skip with his video.
