Welcome Back!

Welcome back to another school year!  The first day of school for students will be September 7, 2021.  Classes begin at 8:00 a.m. with our doors opening at 7:40 a.m. with the arrival of our first bus. 

Due to current COVID protocols, the school continues to remain closed to the public. If you have questions regarding the upcoming 2021-22 school year, please contact the Main Office at 902-541-8220 or via email at wnes@ssrce.ca 



Dear school community,

The Premier and Dr. Strang announced a number of new restrictions throughout the province. As part of that announcement, masking in our schools will extend to all students (pre-primary to Grade 12) with full implementation by Monday, April 26, 2021.

While we recognize this is a change for some students, we also know in-school learning is what’s best for our children and believe this additional measure is appropriate given the current rise in cases.

The South Shore Regional Centre for Education continues to follow a layered approach to COVID-19, as outlined by Public Health. This includes, limiting outside visitors, increased handwashing, increased cleaning, social distancing, outdoor learning, and the use of masks. The ongoing commitment from students, their families, and staff to adhere to these Public Health guidelines has allowed us to have a very successful school year to date and we thank everyone for their ongoing cooperation.
