Dear Parents and Guardians,

 

I hope you and your children are enjoying the final long weekend of the summer!

 

While we are all anxiously awaiting news on any developments regarding the current mediation process surrounding the current provincial labour dispute, we wanted to provide you with important information regarding our school start up process for Don Ross Secondary School.

 

Please note that if in the event school starts ON Tuesday, September 2nd we will be doing a graduated intake on this day in which our Grade 9 students will be attending school from 8:30am until 10:00am and our Grade 7 and 8 students will be attending from 10:00am until 12:30pm.  A schedule for our September 2nd opening day is attached along with our school bus schedule.

 

Please note also that if our school start date is POST Tuesday, September 2nd there would likely be a change to the graduated intake plan and we would be advising parents of our start up plan once we receive confirmation of our start date.
