Good Afternoon, Wilkinson! Welcome to the first update of the new school year. We hope everyone is settling into the new routine. Our apologies for the delay in getting this out - we're still getting used to the start of school!

Welcome Vice-Principal Lyndley!
Ms. Lyndley is an experienced Vice-Principal from Jesse Ketchum ES who brings a breadth and depth of skills, competencies and a dedication to students, student voice, and parent engagement. Ms. Lyndley is committed to an equitable, diverse and accepting school environment focused on student achievement and the well-being and inclusion of all learners. Welcome to Wilkinson!

Nut Allergies
Please remember Wilkinson is a nut-free school. We have a number of students who have life-threatening anaphylactic allergies to a variety of nuts (e.g. walnuts, pecans, peanuts, hazelnuts including chocolate-hazelnut spreads, etc.) and wish to keep our school as safe as possible for everyone.

It’s important to note that “peanut-free” and “nut-free” are not the same thing.  When packing lunches and snacks, please remember to never send products containing nuts of any type (peanuts or otherwise) to school.

Thank you for your cooperation in helping to ensure the safety and well-being of our students.
