Welcome Back!!!

Hello MPE Parents and Guardians,

I trust that you are all having a wonderful and relaxing summer and finally enjoying some summer weather.

First Day back is SEPTEMBER 5th from 8:30am to 9:30am (please note that our first day back is just an hour).
Below is some important info regarding first few days back at MPE this coming September..


For all Kindergarten students:

Below is some information regarding the gradual entry process for our Kindergarten students this year.

Tuesday September 5th 11:30-12:30
All Kindergarten students will come for a 1hr. session on Tuesday September 5th. During this session they will be grouped with a other kindergarten students and will rotate through three different activities with all of our Kindergarten teachers.

Wednesday September 6th
There will be no School for Kindergarten Students on Wednesday. We will have EA’s calling parents individually on Wednesday to set up an interview time for Thursday or Friday. Please except a call on this day.

Thursday Sept 7th and Friday Sept 8th
Interviews will take place with the Teacher, Parents and student. If you can, please keep any siblings at home, and preferably all guardians can attend. The purpose of these interviews are about building a relationship with the teacher/student and family, and acquainting the child and family to the learning process of Kindergarten.

Monday Sept 11th
Class for Kindergarten students will take place from 8:30 – 12:00. This will be a one day gradual entry. There will not be bus service for K students on this day.

Tuesday Sept 12th
Students attend for the first full day of Kindergarten.


For any new student to MPE in grades 1 to 7:
All new students to MPE should report to the library on Tuesday morning, Sept 5th at 8:30. New students will be placed in a temporary classroom until Thursday morning.

** If you are new to Whistler and still need to register your child at MPE, then please email me at Our office reopens on August 28th, however I am accessible all this week.

For all returning students in grades 1-7:
School will begin on Tuesday, September 5th at 8:30 am. Students will be dismissed at 9:30am. The bus will be running to reflect this schedule on Tuesday the 5th.

Wednesday Sept 6th will be a full day with regular bus schedules

Students in grades 1 to 7 will return to their last year’s teacher for Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday morning. New classroom placements for this year will be done as soon as possible. Our goal is to have students in their new classes sometime on Thursday September 7th.
