New Pre-Paid Cafeteria Lunch Cards are Available for Second Semester

Starting February 1st you can purchase pre-paid cafeteria lunch cards online.  Access this feature through our School Cash Online link.  Cards are available in amounts of either 5 lunches ($23.00) or 10 lunches ($45.00).  After purchase, cards can be picked up at the school’s main office.  This is a great way to ensure your student is getting a nutritious lunch each day, while saving when compared to the regular cost of a school lunch.

EDHS Cafeteria Menu

With the rising cost of food we have had to increase the price of some items sold in our cafeteria. The largest increase will be 50 cents.  The cost of a lunch special will now be $5.00, unless you order the new pre-paid lunch cards online, which offer savings on each meal.


Launch of the Raiders' Retreat

The Raiders' Retreat is open and available for use.  The Raiders' Retreat is a quiet space in our Guidance office that has comfortable furnishings and lower levels of lighting.  The purpose of the room is to provide a quiet space for students to "gather themselves" on a difficult day, reduce sensory input in "return to learning" plans, or for quiet contemplation and reflection.  It will also serve as a space where students can pray. 

Students can access the Raiders' Retreat through Mrs. Paterson or through Ms. McDuffe.  The expectation would be that students use the space for short periods of time during the school day,  and return to regular daily activities as quickly as possible. 

Pass-the-Test Course, 2016.

Every year EQAO conducts the Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test (OSSLT). This provincial test measures the performance of grade 10 students on reading and writing expectations in all subjects up to and including grade 9.Successful completion of the OSSLT is a graduation requirement. This year, the OSSLT is March 31, 2016.


Pass the Test is an excellent opportunity for students to get extra support as they prepare to write the test.
