Online Learning Updatehttp://wes.scdsb.on.ca/about-us/news/school-news/364Online Learning Update<p>Hello Families</p><p> </p><p>This week kicked off our online learning platform across SCDSB.  Our staff have been working hard to ensure that our students are able to continue learning virtually while at home.  Google classroom allows you to access the learning material when it works for you and your family.  If you haven't had an opportunity to connect, please take a few minutes to do so this weekend.  We also want to make sure that we have made contact with every one of our students and their families.  Please ensure that you have connected with your classroom teacher and let us know that you are safe, well and at home. </p><p> </p><p>We look forward to ongoing learning with our students.  Please reach out to our staff should you have any questions.  Be sure to stay connected by following us on Twitter @WestBayfieldES or on Instagram, as we showcase <em>learning together @ home</em>. </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>Marg Moran</p><p>Principal<br></p><p><br></p>

Milk & Lunch Programshttp://wes.scdsb.on.ca/about-us/news/school-news/358Milk & Lunch Programs<p>​Hello Bronco Families, <br></p><p>With the closures of schools upcoming, we have had to take a look at our hot lunch & milk programs. </p><p>This morning we went through and processed refunds for those families who had purchased pizza, pasta & milk, pita's were not effected as they had not been put online as of yet. </p><p>You should see a refund in your account (the same method you used to purchased) in the coming days. </p><p>We will resume with orders once we are back in school. Please allow a week turnaround for pasta & pita's as it will take some time to get new orders out once we are back. <br></p><p>Thank you for your understanding. <br></p>
