GENERAL SCHOOL NEWS
Just a reminder that school blocks are looking a bit different this week and running on a Copernican schedule, meaning longer blocks to allow time to complete required work and assessments. Attendance is mandatory for classes this week.
Wednesday, students are in session from 12:00 - 2:35pm (block 3 class), with curriculum completion in the morning.
Thursday, students are in session from 12:15 - 3:05pm (block 4 class), with curriculum completion in the morning.
Friday is a curriculum completion day where students only need to attend if they are in need of extra work time to complete class requirements. Friday is also Literacy 10 and Numeracy 10 Assessments which students have been notified of.
