This Thursday, March 30th is the Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test. It is a full school day for all grade 9 and 10 students. There will be a common lunch at the conclusion of the test and then classes will be running in the afternoon. Therefore, it is expected that students attend for the entire school day. Grade 11 and 12 students have been given independent work and are not to attend school on Thursday. Thank-you for your support in ensuring your son or daughter attends school for the entire day.
ATTN: Gr. 12 students. A grad list has been posted in Guidance on the Bulletin Board. Please come by Guidance ASAP to make sure your name is on it and that your name is spelled correctly.

NEW OSAP REMOVING FINANCIAL BARRIERS TO COLLEGE AND UNIVERSITY
If your child is currently in Grade 12, you should know that applications are now open for college and university programs. The last date for university applications is January 11th. College applications for the fall term should be submitted before February 1st.
Your child may benefit from financial assistance for postsecondary education from the Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP). As part of the most significant reform of student assistance in North America, the government of Ontario is removing the financial barriers to attending college or university.
If your family income is under $50,000, your child’s tuition is covered. Even if you earn more, the new OSAP is still there to help with generous grants that will make sending your child to college or university more affordable.
The Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Development has launched a new online calculator to help students and their families find out quickly and easily whether they qualify for free tuition or other grants and supports from the province. We encourage you to find out more at ontario.ca/osap.
