Windebank has several students who have a serious allergy to all tree nuts, known as Anaphylaxis. Anaphylaxis is a serious allergic reaction that can be life threatening. As a result Windebank Elementary is a "Peanut Aware Zone". Please help us keep our school safe by following these simple rules:
Due to allergies, we are a scent- free school. Please refrain from wearing perfume, cologne or lotions if you are coming to the school. As the Christmas Concert is just around the corner, please share this with family members.

StrongStart is designed for preschool aged children and their parent/caregiver; however children from birth to six years of age are very welcome. We encourage the whole family to join us.
One of the objectives of StrongStart is to ensure a successful transition into kindergarten. Families
who attend StrongStart become very comfortable in a school setting.
Their active involvement in their children's education is ensured through the early positive connection. Through play based problem solving activities found at StrongStart children can develop the literacy and numeracy concepts they need to have in place for success in kindergarten.
Strong Start is a drop-in- program, parents and caregivers can come with their children to any location, at any time, during the hours posted below.
