Procedures for gr.9 students not going to Quebec

The grade nine trip to Quebec is fast approaching.  The group of students that opted to participate in this excursion will be leaving bright and early on Tuesday.

Not all students chose to take part in this opportunity for a variety of reasons.  During the trip there will not be any lessons for grade nine students; no new material will be covered, nor will there be any quizzes or tests.  An opportunity to do independent studying in a small group, supervised, will be available, if needed.

Following regular attendance practices, in the event that your child is not going to attend school on one or more of these days, please notify the school.  Please provide a note this Friday or Monday.  Messages may also be left at any time during or after school hours by calling 416-395-3090.

Thank you, in advance, for assisting us with our Safe Schools Arrival Program by informing us of your child’s absence in advance.
