Letter to families regarding 13 Reasons Why Season 2

Dear Peel District School Board Families:

As you may be aware, season 2 of Netflix’s 13 Reasons Why, is scheduled to be released on May 18, 2018. ​Series like this one can lead to misconceptions and misinformation about suicide, and possibly to the glorification of suicide and suicide contagion. For these reasons, mental health professionals across North America, including the Peel District School Board's mental health team, feel it is necessary to make you aware of this series and content.

What's Happening at Erindale SS

E.S.S. FINAL EVALUATIONS AND EXAMINATIONS

  • Formal final evaluations will be held June 19 - 25.
  • In-class final evaluations/performance tasks may take place during the last few weeks of the semester prior to formal final evaluations. Attendance is very critical throughout the semester and even more so near the end for students to demonstrate understanding of the course concepts and big ideas.
  • Parents/students should not schedule vacations or other activities during these times. To protect the integrity and confidentiality of final evaluations, students must be in attendance at school for final evaluations.

Every year, students arrive late for a final evaluation.  When this happens, no extra time is given to complete the evaluation task.  If you arrive late, you should report directly to the assigned room. 

The Exam Schedule is available here Final Exam Schedule June 2018.pdf

MAKE CERTAIN YOU KNOW THE DATE, TIME, AND LOCATION OF EACH OF YOUR FINAL EVALUATIONS.

The Final Evaluation and Examination Policy is available here Final Evaluation Policy June 2018.pdf

Scholarships Opportunity

Many of you have concerns about how to make post-secondary education more affordable. Scholarships are a great way to help cover the costs of education, but they are difficult to find. There is a new website called ScholarTree.ca that helps students find all of the scholarships they qualify for in minutes. If you have questions, send an email to info@scholartree.ca.

 

Summer Student Jobs with the Ontario Public Service

Every year, the Ontario Public Service, related agencies and community groups, provide up to 5,000 students with jobs across the province. These jobs help Ontario students with limited work experience develop transferable skills, support their career goals and learn more about the Ontario Public Service! Summer Employment Opportunities are full-time, temporary positions ranging from 7 – 18 weeks between May and September.

Please visit https://www.gojobs.gov.on.ca/Pages/SEP.aspx for more information.

 

Counting on You (COY) - French

The expectations of the Provincial curriculum are demanding and can be overwhelming for students. For this reason, some students can benefit from a small, alternative learning environment lead by our teaching staff in a setting that can provide them with an extra boost in obtaining essential literacy and/or numeracy skills.

The Counting on You (COY) - French program runs Mondays and Wednesdays from 2:30pm - 4:00 pm. For more information on how to sign up for this program, click here Counting on You - French.pdf
