All Province of Ontario schools will be moving online as of Monday April 19, indefinitely, as per order of the Ministry of Education. We will endeavor to ensure that all of our students have the materials they need in order to work from home. Our 'return to in-person learning' will be announced at a later date. In the meantime, please reach out to your child's teachers if you have any questions about school and program. Teachers will be using Monday, April 19th to get the transition set up and to connect with all their families and synchronous learning starts on Tuesday, April 20th, 2021

Important Note: ALL of our Life Skills Students will be able to attend in-person starting Tuesday, April 20. Bussing is in place and staff will be here to welcome them back.

We encourage families to continue to check for updates from us and the HDSB through email (SchoolMessenger),, and the Board’s social media pages (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram).
