We look forward to welcoming the Class of 2026 in September 2022. We know the transition from elementary schools to high schools can bring up many questions and inquiries. Our Grade 8 Information Evening will take place on Wednesday, November 3 from 6:30 – 7:30pm. This will be a virtual presentation and the links will be posted soon.
We recognize that families may have other commitments so it’s our goal to have the majority of the information pre-recorded on the website so that the material can be reviewed at a time of convenience. We will have links to Microsoft TEAMs chat channels open by department that evening so that you can ask subject specific questions.
To assist us in our planning – if you have questions in advance, please complete the form.
Emails for our Department Heads will also be available should you have questions at a later time. Please check back regularly as we’ll be updating information for our current grade 8s here.
Students will be able to access their timetable & marks using their Office 365 email and password. The OEN number is not required. Midterm marks have been uploaded to Powerschool. Please reach out to your child’s classroom teacher should you have any questions.
On Wednesday, September 29, 2021, the Halton Catholic District School Board will be marking Rowan’s Law Day to raise awareness about concussions.
What is a Concussion?
A concussion is a brain injury that is caused by a blow to the head, face, neck, or body that can cause a sudden jarring of the head. Even what seems to be a mild bump to the head can be serious.
Research indicates that a concussion can affect a student’s school performance in both cognitive activities (school work) and physical activities (physical education program/interschool activities). Research also indicates that engaging in cognitive and/or physical activities, while a child has a suspected and/or diagnosed concussion, can worsen concussion symptoms and delay the student’s recovery.
What is Rowan’s Law Day?
In May 2013, 17-year-old Rowan Stringer died as the result of head injuries sustained in a game of rugby. In March 2018, the Ontario government passed Rowan’s Law, designed to protect athletes and to educate about the dangers of head injuries.
The health and safety of our students is our priority, and on September 29th, we hope to increase awareness about the dangers of concussions. Together, we can help our students prevent, recognize and respond to concussions.
For more information on our concussion protocol, visit our Board’s website.

When the students get off the bus, they will line up at the door based on their homeroom teacher. Staff will be on hand outside to line students up. Teachers will then pick up the students and walk them to their classroom.
There are orange lines on the ground that will assist the students to line up.

Students will be able to access their timetable using their Office 365 email and password. The OEN number is not required.

Preparing for a Safe & Healthy Return to School ~ Recorded Webinar with Dr. Meghani
On Wednesday, August 25th, Dr. Hamidah Meghani, the Medical Officer of Health for Halton Region joined us for an online webinar to share important information with our HCDSB community on how to ensure a safe and healthy return to school.
In light of the current Public Health situation in Ontario due to COVID-19, HCDSB will once again be offering an option for Grades 9-12 students to learn fully remotely.
We are are asking parents to indicate if they would like your secondary school-aged child to attend school in a remote learning setting.
What to Expect in September
HCDSB will offer a quadmester delivery model to all secondary students for the 2021-2022 school year.
September 2021 – January 2022 will consist of two quadmesters, where students will be enrolled in either full-time, in-person instruction or remote learning.
This will include 300 minutes of instruction each day – two (2) courses with 150 minutes of instruction each, over a 10-week period (quadmester).
Secondary Remote Learning Registration Form
Please complete this form ONLY if you would like to register your child in Secondary Remote Learning at HCDSB for the 2021-2022 school year.
If you would like your child to attend school in-person, no further action is required.
If you are registering more than one child in HCDSB secondary remote learning, please fill out a separate form for each child. *Note: you will need your child’s Ontario Education Number (OEN) to submit this form. The OEN can be found on a recent report card.
If you do not complete this online form, we will plan as though your secondary school-aged child will be attending in-person instruction in September, 2021.
