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. 

Important Notice

Students/ families need to inform their current school if they wish to transition to either the home or remote school for each quadmester.   It is essential that students notify the school of their intentions by these dates so that we have the time to place them in suitable courses. 


Q. What are the final dates in each quadmester when secondary students must notify their school if they plan to move back to either their home school or transition to the remote learning school?


A. Quadmester 2--by 4 p.m. Oct. 19, 2020 ; Quadmester 3--by 4 p.m.January 11, 2021;  Quadmester 4--by 4 p.m. March 29, 2021.


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!
