A message from the Guidance Office

Friday, September 11, 2020:

Welcome back to the new 2020-21 School Year!

Timetables have been sent to student HDSB email addresses. Any timetable changes for Quadmester 1 (Sept-Nov) should only be made for pathway changes and/or errors. These changes will be made during the week of September 14-18 due to the condensed quadmester. Click the link below to request these pathway and/or error changes.

Please hold on to any Quadmester 2, 3, or 4 changes until the end of September.

Check your HDSB email regularly for communication about your timetable issue.

Access to GDHS Guidance office will be restricted until further notice due to Covid-19 restrictions. All guidance appointments will be conducted virtually/by phone and resume the week of Sept. 21st after we have dealt with timetable issues this week.

Thank you for your patience.
