Friday, June 11 - Weekly Parent Newsletter
Hello GDHS families,
As our year begins to draw to a close, we continue to appreciate the efforts put forth by our students and staff, and the support families have offered in helping everyone navigate another difficult year. With the HDSB’s announcement of a learning format for September, we are very excited at the prospect of having all students back in the building all day and every day. Although there is still some uncertainty about what is to come, we are very hopeful that next year will be far closer to “normal” than we have had these past 18 months.
On Thursday the HDSB and Halton Public Health informed all schools that the current COVID-19 restrictions mean it is not feasible to plan and deliver in-person year-end grade celebrations. We will proceed with our current Grad Celebration plan for our graduating grade 12s, which include our drive-through photo opportunity and gift pickup on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, and our virtual Grad celebration, streaming at 7pm on Wednesday June 23rd. The video will remain posted on the school website for the duration of that week. Although we know that a traditional graduation ceremony would be preferred by all (us included), we are excited to honour our Class of 2021 in a unique way.
Registration for summer school in the HDSB is NOW OPEN and completed through the student's myBlueprint account. Students must login to www.myblueprint.ca/halton and login with their school credentials. Course offerings, class times, registration information, and additional details about summer school are available on the Gary Allan Summer School website. Registration closes on June 29th.
