Hello to all W. Erskine Johnston families,
On behalf of the staff at W. Erskine Johnston Public School, we would like to extend a warm welcome to all and a special welcome to any new families who have joined us this year. We are looking forward to a great school year and are eager to get started.

On the first day, Tuesday September 2nd,
Grade 1, 2 and 3 students will gather on the far side of the school; the Vanier yard. Signs indicating the grade levels will be posted on the side of the school building and students will head towards their respective grade.
Grades 4, 5, and 6 English students will go at the back of the portable area and gather by their respective grade number that will be posted on the back of the portables.
Grade 4, 5, and 6 Middle French Immersion students are asked to go to the front of the portable section and gather in front of their respective grade sign.

Teachers will be greeting each bus as it arrives. Our staff will direct the students to their areas and then organize them into their class grouping. It is not necessary for parents to come with their bus student(s).
