you in person next week.
students will join us through a staggered entry, with half starting on
September 6, the other half starting September 7, and everyone together on Thursday,

provides an enriching environment for children to learn, play, and grow. Entering
Kindergarten is both an exciting and often stressful milestone. We encourage
you to reach out to your child’s school with any questions or concerns you may
have. You can also find information on the ASD-S website, including any recent
communications sent to ASD-S families.
Be sure your contact
information is up to date with your child’s school so you never miss a
communication from us or the school. You can also follow the @ASD_South Twitter
page and Facebook page where we regularly post information for families.
about busing, such as stops and schedules, we encourage you to sign up for BusPlanner and be sure to opt-in to
notifications about delays and cancellations. Instructions for signing up can
be found here. For those travelling on the bus for
the first time, information about bus safety can be found here.
As the school year
gets underway, we encourage you to find ways to be active in your school community.
There are often a variety of volunteer opportunities to suit different interests
and availability. You may also consider joining your school’s Parent School
Support Committee (PSSC). It is a great way to participate in your child’s school,
network, and find personal growth and professional development opportunities.
Reach out to your child’s principal for more information on these opportunities.
We are so pleased to
welcome you and your child to the Anglophone South School District. We hope you
have a wonderful start to the school year and many more to come.
