Updated Documents regarding COVID-19 in Schools

Hello DWAM Families!

There have been several changes made regarding COVID information.  These are the two most recent documents.  You can also find them on the province’s website:



Hello Everyone!

Our first day of school has come to a close!  I wanted to say a HUGE thank you to staff and parent/guardian(s)!  Everyone was patient, encouraging, and supportive of our students both at home and school and went that "extra mile" today.  We are so proud of our students as well.  Students were cooperative, calm and listened well. Their efforts made the staff's day so much easier!



Updated COVID Symptoms



Public Health updated its list of COVID symptoms today to reflect the current epidemiology in Nova Scotia. They are working on updated designed posters now, which we are hoping to have next week.  We will send the new posters home as soon as we receive them.


Here is the link with the updated list of symptoms in the meantime: https://novascotia.ca/coronavirus/symptoms-and-testing/

First Day Reminders

We have provided a great deal of information to parents through our website and we understand just how confusing things can be on the first day of school.  With that in mind, these are your “reminders” for the first day.  This should take a little worry from you as you try to have everything ready!  All other items will wait. 

  • Take first day pictures at home before students get on the bus.  Only essential visitors are allowed in the school at this time so there will be no opportunity to take these pictures at school.
  • Masks need to be worn on the bus.  For children in PP-3, masks will continue to be worn until students get to their homeroom class.  For grade 4-8 students, masks will continue to be worn throughout the school day.
  • Please arrive at your bus stop 10 minutes early.  However, buses could also be running behind as new students are loaded on.  Give yourself some leeway on both ends of the expected pick up time.  Remind students they will be given a piece of paper when they leave the bus.  This paper gives the bus number that will be taking them home afterschool.  Students will give this paper to their homeroom teacher.
  • Students being driven to school should be dropped off between 8:00-8:15. Students also need to know what travel arrangements are made for after school as well.
  • Bring a full water bottle.
  • If ordering from the cafeteria, please have the order and exact change in a small sealed bag.
  • No microwaves are available.
  • Students should only bring a few school supplies.  Pencils (and crayons depending on age), some paper or scribbler, one glue stick, one pair of scissors, etc.  It’s not necessary to bring everything that first day!
  • All buses leave at 2:20. Once again, they might run a little later for the first few days.
  • Student/parent information packages will be sent home on the first day. These packages have a LOT of information!! Please read all information and send back items that need to be returned on Wednesday.  It’s very important we have the most up to date contact information along with a number of emergency contacts’ phone numbers.

Have a great long weekend and we look forward to seeing our students on Tuesday!

Ordering from the Cafeteria

Our cafeteria will be open on the first day of school.  Children will give their homeroom teachers a small sealed bag with their order and exact change for the day.  Order forms will be sent for you to have them available.  The first day a piece of paper using the same format will be fine. 

Orders will be sent to classes for both snack and lunch.  The menu, price list, and an example of the order form can be found below.

Please find the Orientation Video at the following link:  https://youtu.be/WCpdjpp0yzo

This would help those students who are coming to Dr. W. A. MacLeod for the first time (Pre-Primary, Primary and Grade 7).  It also talks about some of the new procedure at the school due to expectations from the Department of Education and Health.  All students and parents should watch.

Please continue to view our website for any new updates as we welcome our students next week.
