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

Ryan's Law - Ensuring Asthma Friendly Schools

 Permanent link

have you heardMay 20, 2015

As you may be aware, the Ontario Legislature recently passed Ryan’s Law, 2015. This piece of legislation is an important step to support the well-being of students with asthma in Ontario schools.

Over the course of the next school year, the Upper Grand DSB will be working to implement the requirements of this legislation.

If your child has asthma, we ask that you immediately contact the main office at your school to provide information about your child’s asthma medication. With your permission, your child will be allowed to carry their asthma medication.

The Ministry of Education website has resources on asthma that can be found at:

http://www.edu.gov.on.ca/eng/healthyschools/anaphylaxis.html

As a best practice and to support your child, please let the school know if your child has a medical condition so that the school is aware and can keep this information on file.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

We need your help!
