Petition – Please keep JK at Winchester


Petition – Please keep JK at Winchester

Neighbours, The TDSB has proposed eliminating the Junior Kindergarten (JK) program at Winchester Public School and is about to make a final decision on the proposal. The difficulties associated with this proposed change include:

1. parents with children already attending Winchester and a younger child entering JK will need to figure out how to manage two school drop-offs and pick-ups at the same time every day.

2. for children affected it will mean adjusting to a new school, its schedule, and students in JK and then again when they transition into SK at Winchester. We believe this change introduces difficult transitions for young children entering the school system, hardship on parents caught juggling children in two separate schools, or children having to miss the opportunity of Junior Kindergarten.

We are asking the TDSB to keep the Junior Kindergarten program at Winchester and have created a petition to send a message of support for JK at Winchester from our community. Please support this cause. To sign the petition go to:

The next TDSB meeting is on November 9th, 7pm at 5050 Yonge St.
