After August 15th, STSWR sends out a letter directly to families of JK and SK students, detailing their child’s September transportation information.
STSWR gives out kindie tags to schools at WCDSB or WRDSB Administrative Start Up Meetings each school year for JK and SK students that will be transported. All elementary schools receive blank name tags in August to issue to newly eligible JK and SK students during the school year. You can also create your own:
