Hello GDHS families,
School Closure Extended
The Ministry of Education announced that students in Halton will not return to school on Monday, January 25th. No time frame has been provided yet by the Ontario government on when Halton schools can re-open for in-class learning. Students will continue their fully virtual learning model for the time being. We continue to hope that students are finding success in the current model, but we know that it can be a challenge. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to the school if you need support.
Grad Photos Postponed
Grad photos have been postponed to the week of April 26th and May 3rd. More details will be shared as they become available.
End of Quad Student Success and Achievement Review Days
Similar to the end of Quad 1, there will be a Virtual Student Success Day on Wednesday February 3rd and a Course Achievement Review Day on Thursday February 4th. These days give students an opportunity to catch up on missed work, and get comprehensive course feedback from their teacher. Students are still expected to log into their classes on these days.
Upcoming PD Day
Friday February 5th is a PD Day. There will be no classes for students on that day.
Schedule for the Week of January 25th
Next week students have their Period 2 class in the morning, and their Period 1 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.
