    IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENTS:

    Urgent! Student Health Agreement (by Sept. 14)

    Dear Parents and Guardians,

    We are looking forward to welcoming back all of our students in September. Thank you for your patience as we plan for your child's safe return to learning. In order to support the health and well-being of our Thames Valley community members, we are requiring all parents and guardians with children attending one of our schools in-person this September to complete a Student Health Agreement by Monday, September 14. This agreement outlines important steps that need to be taken by all of our families in order to reduce the transmission of COVID-19. The Agreement is now posted on the Parent Portal (www.tvdsb.ca/parentportal).

    One important component outlined in the agreement involves committing to monitoring your children’s health each day before riding school transportation or arriving at school. If parents and guardians answer “yes” to any of the screening questions, they must not send their child on school transportation or to school and must contact their family health care provider and/or their local health unit for further instructions. 

     

    About Quadmesters

    In order to minimize contacts in a day, Montcalm classes are divided into quadmesters this year. Instead of taking 4 classes each day for a semester (September - January and February - June), students will work on one class per day. Students will have two classes for the first half of each semester with longer class times and two different classes for the second half of each semester.  They take these classes on alternating weeks (e.g. Period 1 first week and Period 2 second week).

    IMPORTANT QUADMESTER DATES - Semester 1

    Quad 1 Classes: September 14 - November 11 (Period 1 & 2 classes on alternating weeks)

    Quad 1 Final Exams: November 12 & 13

    Turn around day: November 16 - no classes

    Quad 2 Classes: November 17 - February 2 (Periods 3 & 4 classes on alternating weeks)

    Quad 2 Final Exams: February 1 & 2

    Turn around day: February 3 - no classes

     

    About Cohorts

    To minimize contacts, students returning to in person classes will be assigned to Cohort A or Cohort B. One cohort, approximately half the class, will attend on some days and the other cohort will be in class on the other days. Students will have one class per day, lunch, and study hall. This calendar shows cohort days with letters and semester 1 periods with numbers.   

    On days students are not in school they will have assignments and lessons that can be found on their Google Classroom or Brightspace class. Students in cohort B will have online learning the first three school days and are encouraged to check their school gmail for emails or Google classroom/Brightspace invitations from their period 1 and 2 teachers. 

     

    Student Insurance

    If you are interested in purchasing optional insurance coverage for your child, paper copies will not be handed out in homerooms this year. You can find information about insurance as this website:  https://insuremykids.com/
