AVRCE’s Parent Navigator, Tammy Ring, helps guide families to supports and services. She works with schools, SchoolsPlus, and community agencies to make sure families know how to access services in education, justice, health, community services and more.

The Parent Navigator position is new to Nova Scotia’s education system. Our Parent Navigator can help if you:

  • - Are looking for support and knowledge from someone who knows what resources are out there, and how to access them;
  • - Are wondering who can answer questions about your child’s academic, emotional and/or social well-being;
  • - Want help connecting to services and systems to get your child the right help and support.

If you’re wondering which way to go, ask your Parent Navigator! Contact Tammy Ring by calling 902-844-2816, emailing , or by speaking with your school administrator.

WFDS is a “nut smart” school.  We have students with severe allergies to nuts. Therefore we ask that you not send products containing nuts to school.  If you use “wow” butter or other replacements, help us avoid the confusion by sending a note in the lunchbox indicating that it is a nut-free product.  THANK YOU!
