Starting Update

Dear Students & Parents/Caregivers,

We are keen to begin the school year with students returning to classes full-time.  There will be significant changes to school access and scheduling with the addition of necessary safety procedures. We are reconfiguring our timetable to align with Covid-19 protocols, including:

  1. Quarterly Rotations:

Students will take two classes at a time for a 9-week period. There will be four quarters for the year and students will complete eight courses for the year. Classes will be 2.5 hours long with in-class breaks.

  1. Cohorts:

Students will be assigned to cohorts of 120 students or less. Cohorts are a requirement from the Provincial Health Authority to reduce the potential of Covid-19 transmission and to aid in contact tracing. Cohorts will be assigned entrances, and staggered breaks and lunches.

School administration is currently reconfiguring the school timetable to align student cohorts and the quarterly system. With the new timetable, we are working to schedule students in the necessary courses required for graduation but will not be able to accommodate all course requests. Student schedules will be available during the week of Sept 8th.


  • The first day of school: Sept 10 – shortened day for orientation
  • Lockers will not be in use
  • Masks will be required in public spaces where physical distancing is not possible

Information will be posted as it becomes available.
