Important Updates

Friday January 15, 2021

Hello GDHS families,

Fully Virtual Learning/Return to In-Person Learning

We have now completed two weeks of fully virtual learning. We hope that students continue to find enjoyment and success in their learning, and we commend our staff for the work they have done in preparation for the current school closure and fully virtual learning model.

Although other school boards have had their closures extended, Halton is currently scheduled to resume in-school learning on Monday, January 25th. Should this occur, students would remain in their cohorts, attending 2 or 3 mornings a week depending on the schedule for that week. We will keep you informed if the Ministry of Education changes this timeline, as they have consistently mentioned the possibility of extending the closure. We look forward to the time when we are all back in the building together.

2021-2022 Course Selection Planning for Grade 10s

As students are completing the course selection process for next year, grade 10s can consider participating in the Specialist High Skills Major (SHSM) or Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program (OYAP). For more information, please see the GDHS SHSM / OYAP PROGRAM APPLICATION INFORMATION.

Night School Co-op

If any senior students are interested in a night school co-op, applications are due to their guidance counsellor no later than January 29th. You can access the application form here.

Schedule for the Week of January 18th

Next week students have their Period 1 class in the morning, and their Period 2 class in the afternoon. Students will do both the morning and afternoon classes virtually from home. Please see here for a Quadmester 2 calendar overview.
