Good Morning,

On Thursday, March 30th - all students in Grade 10 and some previously eligible students will be writing the Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test. This assessment of reading and writing is a graduation requirement and students have been busy preparing for it.
Students writing the test will be bused to school at the regular time (walkers writing will arrive for the usual start time)
ALL other students will be picked up at their regular bus stops 3.5 hours later and bused to school for shortened afternoon classes. Afternoon classes will begin promptly at 12:45 p.m. 

A few reminders for the test:
1) Please remind your child to bring pens and pencils with them.

2) No cell-phones, audio or video-recording devices, digital music players or e-mail or text-messaging devices are allowed in the test room. 

3) Students will arrive to school and information will be posted as to where they are writing the test. 

4) Students will be provided a break and a snack in between booklets.

The cafeteria will be closed on this day so please ensure students arrive with a lunch unless they choose to go out.

REMINDER - Parent teacher interviews will begin on Thursday, March 30th at 5 p.m. Please ensure that you have signed up for your interviews.

Thank you for your support!
