Welcome to Woodland Public School!

Hello Woodland Families,

We are so happy to be back in our classrooms and learning together!

Please see attachment below for details and important information about the return, shared with families, from the DSBN.

Return to In Person Learning - New Safety Protocols

Keeping Safe Together

As always, I welcome your input and questions (wol@dsbn.org).


Mrs. K. Phillips

Principal, Woodland Public School

Please remember...

It is the responsibility of parents and caregivers to assess their children daily before sending them to school. Additionally, parents must have a person available to pick up their child right away, should they become sick during school. We ask that all parents sign and return the Parental Agreement for Daily Screening - thank you for helping us to keep everyone safe!

Public Health guidelines Feb. 22



There are times in Niagara when weather conditions are so poor that we must cancel student transportation, and/or close schools to preserve the safety of students and staff.

The decision to cancel transportation and/or close schools is not taken lightly; a variety of factors are considered when making this choice. To learn more about how these decisions are made, please go to https://www.dsbn.org/inclementweather.

Transportation Cancellations:
Information about transportation delays and cancellations are posted to https://portal.nsts.ca/Cancellations.aspx. When transportation is cancelled, information is shared before 6:00 am on the day of the cancellation. There are times when transportation is cancelled, but schools remain open. If, on those days you feel it is best for your child to stay home, please report your child’s absence https://dsbn.org/safearrival/ so we can make sure they are safe at home.

School Closures:

When the decision to close schools is made, it refers to all schools: both in-person and virtual schools. School closure information is shared before 6:00 am on the day of the school closure. You will find it on dsbn.org, all school websites, DSBN social media, and local media share the news widely as well.

Student Work on School Closure and Transportation Cancellation Days:

For elementary students - On days where transportation is cancelled and/or schools are closed, please visit your child’s school website and click on the “Learn From Home” button. There you will find optional asynchronous learning resources.


Introducing the DSBN Well-Being Flag!

The DSBN’s first-ever Well-Being Flag is on display in our atrium! Designed by a
DSBN student, the Well-Being Flag is a tangible symbol of student voice, leadership, inclusivity,
kindness, acceptance, diversity, bias-free environments, respect, positive engagement, and
The Well-Being Flag will be on display at Woodland to show our support for
inclusive school environments, where everyone should feel safe and respected. We hope that
DSBN students and community members see themselves represented in the Well-Being Flag,
and interpret it in their own personal way.


Keeping our School Safe and Healthy

If you have a child with a Prevalent Medical Condition (Anaphylaxis, Asthma, Diabetes, and/or Epilepsy) we want to make sure we have a current Plan of Care to support your child.  

The Plan of Care form is a new document that replaces the Emergency Action Plan. All parents of children with Prevalent Medical Conditions are asked to fill out the new Plan of Care and submit to the school.

You can download the forms here dsbn.org/prevalent-medical-conditions.

For more information, please contact the school.


Scent Aware-Reduced Environment:

Woodland is a Scent-Reduced Environment: some staff and students have a sensitivity to odours, smells, and scents. Please do not wear, or send your child with, perfume, cologne, after shave, or scented body lotion into the school.


Be Nut Aware!

When you are packing your child’s lunch, please remember that we strive to be a nut-free environment. Members of our school community have nut allergies so it is important that we all work to ensure their safety.

Thank you!
