Special Alert

Students to participate in remote learning

04/13/2021

​On April 12, the Ontario government announced that all schools in Ontario will move to remote learning following the Spring Break in order to suppress the spread of COVID-19. 

As a result, all Simcoe County District School Board (SCDSB) students currently participating in in-person learning will now participate in remote learning until further notice. Students will receive and complete assigned coursework through the virtual learning platform established by their teacher (either Google Classroom or Desire2Learn [D2L]). Your child’s teacher will contact you beginning on Monday, April 19 to discuss next steps, including information on how to access technology, if required, for the purpose of remote learning. School programming is expected to be in full operation through remote learning by Wednesday, April 21. Please note that transportation services will not be available during the remote learning period.

Parents/guardians of students in special education classes will be contacted by their child’s teacher beginning on Monday, April 19 regarding programming and transportation arrangements. School programming is expected to be in full operation by Wednesday, April 21.

Students currently enrolled in the Learn@Home program will continue to attend class virtually. Learn@Home classes will resume on Monday, April 19.

Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test (OSSLT) Update http://ban.scdsb.on.ca/about-us/news/school-news/698Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test (OSSLT) Update <p><strong>Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test (OSSLT) Update </strong></p><p>Beginning April 27th, 2021, students in Grades 10 and 11, and non-graduating Grade 12 students will have the opportunity to attempt the Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test (OSSLT) at Banting Memorial High School. If successful, this will count towards satisfying the literacy requirement for the Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD). </p><p>Please note that the literacy graduation requirement for all students graduating during the 2020–2021 school year has been waived. </p><p>Should a student who is learning from home within the hybrid system wish to participate in the OSSLT, the student must come into the school and write the test with their class cohort. In this manner, we are ensuring that cohorts are maintained, and that all necessary public health directives and school board health and safety measures continue to be implemented. </p><p>Even with safety measures in place, we recognize that not all families will feel comfortable with their student entering the building and attempting the OSSLT. Please know that we understand that this concern exists, and staff will work with students to ensure that they can complete the literacy requirement for the OSSD in the future. </p><p>Unlike past years, there will not be a dedicated day to the writing of the OSSLT. Instead, all students will be assigned a day to write the OSSLT between April 27th, 2021 and May 21st, 2021. The test format has also changed to an online assessment. Please note that the normal daily school day schedule will be unaffected and will continue as normal. </p><p>We believe that students, working with their teachers, parents/guardians and administrators, can be successful on the OSSLT. Additional information and materials about the OSSLT are posted on the EQAO web site at http://www.eqao.com.</p>
