Ontario’s Ministry of Education is committed to removing barriers to further ensure all students have equal opportunities to succeed.


To this end, a new Grade 9 Mathematics curriculum will be introduced in classrooms in September 2021.  This ‘de-streamed’ course will replace the previous Academic and Applied Mathematics courses. 


The description and code for the new mathematics, Grade 9 course (MTH1W)is included in the current course calendars for all secondary schools in Bluewater District School Board.  The curriculum will be released this spring and made available toeducators and parents/guardians on the ministry’s Curriculum and Resources website atCurriculum (gov.on.ca)

Important Notice

Just a reminder of the expectations for secondary students during the assigned study hall period. At 2 PM, students who have been given permission by parents/guardians are expected to:

  • leave their assigned class for the rest of the school day;
  • leave school property during the rest of the school day;
  • return to school only if the student rides a bus home at the end of the day.

Unfortunately, we are not able to have students hanging around the school property, playing games and visiting with their friends. We are expected to uphold the guidelines established by the Return to School Plan and Public Health.  The form that families sign to grant permission did have these expectations listed on them very clearly. 


Bluewater District School Board will follow a quadmester timetable within the conventional model. There is a supervised study period each day within the timetable. Parents/guardians/adult students can sign the form below to give permission for the student to leave the school property during this study period. If a student opts to leave the school property, then they will not return to the school unless they ride a bus. Students that take a bus would be required to return to the school on time to catch their bus.

Parents/guardians are automatically set up to receive broadcasts from our school by phone, email, and text through our communication platform, SchoolMessenger Communicate!
