Please take advantage of this new service. Decisions about school schedules and bus route changes are generally made before 6:30 a.m. This allows for the most current weather information to factor into the decision.

Bus Transportation Registration for 2017-18

In order to ride a district school bus, all new and returning riders must complete a registration form each year.




Dewdney School has a small wish list...

- a parent/grandparent/auntie/uncle/distant relative who would "Adopt a class" to guide the teacher and students in their gardening experience. There are 5 divisions and we are thinking once a week after spring break. We recognize the wealth of knowledge many of our extended family members have and we thought they might like to share their knowledge with kids. We have Apple trees, shrubs, evergreen and deciduous trees, a tulip field and corn maze in our naturescape that we want to maintain in addition to 7 garden boxes. We can hardly wait!

- older tents with all the parts to teach students how to set up and take down

- a reliable stroller....many days we walk down to the slough carrying shovels, magnifying glasses, binoculars, jars, sit upons, etc. It would be great to have a sturdy stroller to help carry our science and exploration supplies.

- we need a post and to borrow a post pounder to pound it in to mount our rain gauge. Right now we have had it tied to the electrical box but would like it closer to our weather station.

Thank y ou all for the amazing support we have received!!!


Items Requested by Principal


West Coast Recess

Description: C:\Users\admin\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\NYKGAT3L\MC900383318[1].wmfWe encourage outside play for all children…although we understand our “wet coast” weather. Students will have the opportunity to get some fresh air and still stay dry under our large overhangs.  We would ask that you talk to your children about not getting wet and asking to phone home for a change of clothes.  We would encourage students to bring a change of clothes to stay at school if they accidentally get wet.  Some days, the field and grass may be wet but the weather is fine.  Again, we want to encourage play, but please send a change of clothes to school in a bag with their name on it.
