Hey Spartans,


Here’s your news update for the week to come!


April 9th - Change to Calendar - No Classes


Reminder that the school year calendar can be viewed here.


However a change has been announced for April 9th. OCDSB has now scheduled a Secondary Student Success Day on April 9th. This will provide the best possible opportunity for staff and students to complete remaining work and assessment from the quademster/octomester prior to the break. April 9th will be an asynchronous learning day focusing on student success and course completion. There will be no secondary in-person or remote learning classes and no new material taught on this day; secondary students will not attend school. Student transportation will not run for secondary students on this day.  Students should take all their learning materials and personal belongings with them at the end of the day on April 7th or 8th as there will be no access to the school on the 9th or during the spring break. 


Please check your email inbox for a message about this change from the school board.
