Grade 9 High School Orientation
It that time of year where we start to prepare your student for High School. The Learning Team at the High School will be sending you a letter informing you on the date of their parent orientation. We strongly encourage you to attend this orientation,(Feb 26/27 @7pm) as this is your time to ask questions.
Your student will be attending, on either March 4th of 5th a student orientation at the High School. This will be done during the day, and students will be riding to the High School with Mr. DeMone. I will be sending home a permission slip once I have the exact date and time.
I encourage you to start having conversations with your student about which courses he/she will be requesting to take. If you require more information regarding High School programming, be sure to check out, http://wetaskiwincomp.ca/
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 780-352-3029.
School Bus Status - App
Wetaskiwin Regional Public Schools Bus Status app is now available for free download at the Apple App Store. The Wetaskiwin Regional Public Schools Bus Status App displays up to date bus information for the Wetaskiwin Regional Public Schools. The app is connected to the school bus statuses that are featured on the division and school websites. Each time the bus status is updated on the website the app will push a notification to your iPhone or ipad. The app is provided as a service to parents/guardians of students who ride Wetaskiwin Regional Public Schools buses. There is a safety element in that parents/ guardians will be notified of a cancellation of busing service, or a delay in service.
The arrival of winter weather inevitably brings cold, snowy mornings that may leave families wondering whether school buses are running late or running at all. No need to wonder any longer. Why? Because there really is an app for that.
The app, created by Box Clever, ties directly to school bus status updates posted to the Wetaskiwin Regional Public Schools website, www.wrps.ab.ca, and individual school websites. The app offers a simple, easy-to-browse interface, searchable bus listing, simple pull down to refresh route status, option to share bus status information via text messaging, email or Facebook and Twitter, and the choice to identify specific routes as favorites. Any change to the status of a favorite bus route will result in a push notification on your iPhone.
If you’re not sure of your bus route number, you can see the routes listed by driver name on Wetaskiwin Regional Public Schools website at http://www.wrps.ab.ca/parents/bus-route-status once you download the app, you can “favorite” your child’s route by number and receive push notifications should that route be cancelled or delayed.
To connect to the app, visit www.wrps.ab.ca from your iPhone today and you’ll see a prompt to connect you directly to the app, or go to the App Store and search for “Wetaskiwin Regional Public Schools Bus Status.” Sorry, Android users, at this time it is only available for iPad and iPhone, however 82% of the users visiting the website are using an Apple operating system with Android, Blackberry, and Windows Phones accounting for the remaining 18%.
Wetaskiwin Regional Public Schools serves 3900 students throughout the City and County of Wetaskiwin.
