Next Week & FYI's

Dear Windebank Families,  

Here are a few informational items about upcoming events and activities at the school. Parent Advocacy Workshop.pdf

Have a wonderful weekend : ) 

FYIs 

  • School Catchment Boundary- The School Board has requested a full review of all school catchment boundaries.  Before determining any details for boundary changes, the School District is interested in getting feedback through a Boundary Catchment Survey.  Responses will provide information that will guide the development of options for consideration by the Board of Education.  Please complete both surveys.

  • Health & Safety- As of Monday, February 24, 2020, every MPSD site will have a Visitor sign-in/sign-out log in the Office, as per district OHS policy.  Please be sure to sign-in and out and collect your "Visitor" lanyard if you'll be onsite with us.  This is a safety procedure to help us account for all persons on site in case of an emergency.  If you are onsite without a visible "Visitor" lanyard, staff will check in with you to direct you to the Office so we can adjust quickly to the routine.
