 Dear Parents/Guardians:

     Each year, the Education Quality and Accountability Office (EQAO) conducts the Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test (OSSLT).  This provincial test measures the performance of grade 10 students on the 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 will be administered on Thursday, March 26, 2015 in the morning.  Attendance on this day is mandatory for all grade 10 students and re-writers.  


Practice test:          A two-day practice literacy test will be administered in class on Wednesday, Oct. 22, 2014 (in the morning) and Thursday, Oct. 23, 2014 (in the afternoon).  This test is marked, and results and feedback are given to students. 

Grade 9 2013-2014 EQAO results are in!!!

Notes for Absences

 Permanent link

Aizan is an automated system that will place a call home if a student has been marked absent in one or more classes even if a note, a call or an e-mail has been sent by a parent. Parents must confirm the reason for the student’s absence by leaving a message on the school’s answering machine or by sending a note with the student the next day for a full day absence. If NO contact is made by the parent, the student is automatically considered truant for 4 classes. Notes need to be sent with a student if that student has an appointment during the school day. Please remember that students must sign in and out.
