Here is some important information for the upcoming week.
If your child was in this week to pay their student fee and pick up their timetable they also received an envelope containing some important paperwork. Parents, please fill in all of the forms that were included in that envelope and have your child bring them back to their homeroom teacher on Tuesday, September 8th.
If your child was unable to pick up their timetable and forms this week they can do so in the auditorium on Tuesday, September 8th according to the following schedule.
Grade 9 students who have not already picked up their timetable should do so beginning at 9:00 am in the auditorium in order to be in homeroom by 9:30 am. Please fill out all forms and return them to the homeroom teacher by Friday, September 12th.
Grade 10, 11 and 12 students who have not already picked up their timetables do so beginning at 10:30 am in the auditorium in order to be in homeroom by 11:00 am. Please fill out all forms and return them to the homeroom teacher by Friday, September 12th.
On September 8th, all Grade 9 students should be in their homeroom from 9:30 am until 10:30 am at which point students will be dismissed for the day.
On September 8th, all Grade 10, 11 and 12 students should be in their homeroom from 11:00 am until 12:00 pm at which point students will be dismissed for the day.
Wednesday, September 9th is a regular school day. There is no late start on that day.
If your child wishes to make a timetable change please review the following process:
Wednesday, September 9 to Friday, September 11
To request a course change, students need to pick up a ticket starting at 8:00 a.m. on Wednesday, Thursday or Friday in order to meet with a guidance counsellor. Students are expected to attend all classes. They will be called to the Student Service office by their ticket number. Students need to arrive early as there will be a limit of 50 tickets available each day.
To drop a class only (no adds), students may come to Student Services to pick up a pink drop sheet. The pink drop sheet must be signed by a parent/guardian and a guidance counsellor before the course will be removed from a student’s timetable.
To get approval for an e-Learning course (students must have applied previously) students must drop off their signed parent permission form so that the guidance counsellors can complete the approval process.
To make any timetable changes, guidance counsellors will also be available on a first-come, first-served basis after school on Wednesday, September 9 and Thursday, September 10 to make timetable changes from 3:10 – 4:30 p.m. This is your best bet. Bring a snack, a friend or a good book and wait patiently and you will definitely get to see a counsellor.
Timetable changes are only possible if there is space in the requested class. The last day to make timetable changes (except for change of level) is Monday, September 21. Students must attend all classes including those they are planning to drop until parent signatures have been received by guidance.
