We are going to be wrapping up our first semester on Wednesday, January 24th. This will be the last day of the term and all student work should be handed in by this day so that teachers can prepare final grades for our February 5th report card. Our second semester begins on Monday, January 29th.
Students will not be required to be at school on the Thursday or Friday leading into second semester as there will be no classes scheduled. However, Provincial exams will be underway and any students with incomplete work may be asked to attend so that they can meet requirements for their courses. Buses will be running as usual.
We look forward to seeing everyone back on January 29th!
