Our school parking lot can be incredibly busy. Please be very careful when driving through, and ensure that you're always letting your children out of the vehicle along the sidewalk. We are working with our School Council as well as the school division to mitigate the congestion, but the fact is we simply have a very large population and the parking lot and drop-off lane gets full fast.

Given our high population of students, parents are asked to please wait outside the building at the beginning and end of each school day. Our hallways are very crowded with students (and staff), and this helps us to mitigate congestion while also ensuring we know who is in our building at any given time during the day. It is a great idea to plan a meeting point with your child where they know to look for you.

Whispering Ridge Community School Fees

Please try to have your school fees paid as soon as possible.

In order to ensure we can continue to offer enriching learning experiences and optimal programming for our students, we are instating a small school fee for students in grades 1-8. The school administration team worked with our School Council group to weigh the pros and cons, and to ensure that this decision was supported moving forward. So with the support of our School Council, we will kindly ask that each family pay a small fee of $30 per student.

What will this money be used for?

  • Purchasing additional resources/supplies to enhance learning

  • Supporting enrichment projects and activities

  • Additional off-site learning opportunities

  • Helping with the rising costs of operation and basic supplies

How do I pay this fee?

  • Our school office accepts cash, cheque, and debit

What if I can’t afford this?
