Student Registration Verification

This week your child will bring home a Student Information Verification Form.  The form contains important information such as address, contact phone numbers and email addresses.  We ask all parents to please:

  1. Verify that the all information is correct (please correct errors with a pen)
  2. Sign and date the form and return it to the teacher with your child
  3. Note that we don’t need the Health Card #, Doctor information and Immunization Information.

Please have all forms verified and returned by October 1st, 2021. 

Thank you for your help.

Religious Holidays

Dear Ventura Park Families,

As the religious holidays approach we would like to remind all parents to please enter your children’s religious holiday absences on Edsby.

Thank you for your cooperation,


Thank you for a great first day!

Good afternoon Ventura Park families!

We want to thank you all for a great first day. It was wonderful to have so many of our students back in the building, and to have our virtual students connect with their classes this afternoon.

We understand that there were issues with late busses this morning, and that the phone lines at both the bus company and the school were occupied. We appreciate your patience as we continue to get bussing ironed out. Please check the School Bus City webpage for any information about bus stops, and monitor the website for late bus reports as well. If you have moved or your pickup arrangements have changed, please let the office know.

As a quick reminder, all elementary families must now complete a Covid-19 screening for each child every morning. The screening form can be accessed here, and requires a student’s GAPPS username and password to log on. For families new to the YRDSB who do not yet have their child’s GAPPS account information, please reach out to your child’s teacher for more information.

We’re looking forward to another great day of learning tomorrow!

Afternoon – Late busses

Dear families,

Please be advised that many of our busses were very delayed in arriving at Ventura Park this afternoon and will therefore be arriving at their stops late.

The office staff will be remaining at the office until we have notification that the last student has been dropped off safely.

Thank you,
The VPPS Team

A Message to our VPPS Community

To our Ventura Families

As we head into the summer we would like to thank all of you for your help and support during these unusual times.  The pandemic has shown us that we can overcome many obstacles that come our way.  In spite of the unknowns we were still able to accomplish many things:

  1. Spirit and wellness initiatives for both Students and Parents.
  2. A school wide library initiative that included a physical refresh and an inclusive art project.
  3. Continued work with Indigenous artist Deron Douglas, Outstanding Performances from Roseneath Theatre and a dynamic student council.

Congratulations to our Grade 8 graduates.

Wishing all our students, staff, families and community members a safe summer.  Enjoy the time off, you’ve earned it !!!!
