The following are links to a variety of digital resources for students and families to access during this period of school closure due to COVID-19. These resources are not intended to replace the curriculum which students would have been receiving if they had been back in school. They are intended to help keep students engaged as we transition to a teacher led learning environment.
As a school, we remain committed to creating teaching and learning conditions that will, as best as possible given the circumstances, lead to the successful completion of the school year for all students.
Celebrating the Gift of our Families

Learn at Home Resources
On Friday, March 20th, the Ministry of Education released the first phase of the Learn at Home resources to support student learning during this school closure due to COVID-19. They are designed as supplementary resources to help students practice math and literacy skills during the two-week school closure period.

TVO ILC invites students to join the free online TVO ILC Open House, where they can keep up with their studies or deepen their understanding through an open preview of all 144 Grade 9 to 12 courses.
For Grades 6 to 10
Free, one-on-one online support provided by Ontario Certified Teachers, is available to help students improve their math skills. Now accessible Monday to Friday, 9am to 9pm, and Sunday from 3:30pm to 9pm. Build math understanding and confidence with the help of a math tutor!
For Grades 9 to 12
Students can review, refresh and extend their learning. During this time of school closure, teacher-facilitated online courses are being temporarily adapted to allow for independent study (not for credit). You can begin when you like and work at your own pace.
