help! newly homeschooling and I have a question

by Tania Martin
(Windsor, Ontario, Canada)

My four children have attended the same public school for the last 5 yrs, but we are now moving to a new town, and have decided this is the oppourtunity to begin homeschooling.

Do I need to inform the school they are leaving? Do I need to tell anyone in our new city (ie. school board)? What do I do about their student records? Can I obtain them from their old school and keep them? We are in Ontario if this makes a difference.

Any thoughts or comments will be appreciated
Thanks Tania
