Parent/guardian consent to receive electronic communication

​Canada's new anti-spam law came into effect on July 1, 2014. This law requires the Peel District School Board and its schools to have consent from parents/guardians before we send them any electronic communication (e.g. synrevoice texts, email) that contains commercial information. While the majority of  electronic communication to families is about school and/or Peel board initiatives and activities, we may also include commercial information, such as details about fundraisers, field trips, the sale of yearbooks, student pictures, book sales, event tickets, special offers for Peel students and families, or similar events and offers.

​Based on feedback from parents and community members, Peel District School Board trustees have approved a change to reduce the transportation distance eligibility for students in grades 9 to 12 from 4.8 km to 3.8 km. Grade 9 to 12 students who live 3.8 km or more from school will now be able to take the bus to and from school.

Welcome Back

September 2, 2014

I'd like to welcome all Grade 9 students and their parents or guardians to the Heart Lake Secondary School community and I'd like to welcome back all returning students and their families.

As I begin my second year as principal at Heart Lake,  I consider it a privilege to have been placed at a school so rich in academic programs, extra-curricular opportunities, and the values of character education.

The staff at Heart Lake is committed to helping all of our students be the best that they can be. We offer a full course selection leading to the Ontario Secondary School Diploma. We also offer a number of specialized programs including the Regional Enhanced stream for gifted students, the Specialized High Skills Major programs in Computer Technology and Arts and Culture.

I believe that the purpose of secondary school is to develop the whole student. At Heart Lake that development happens not only in the classroom, but also as students have opportunities to participate in the arts and athletics, in environmental initiatives and student government, as well as many other extra-curricular activities. Throughout all of these activities and throughout our curriculum, we stress that Character Counts!

I encourage all students to take advantage of all that your school has to offer and I encourage all Heart Lake parents and guardians to stay involved in the education of your children. We would love to see you at our school concerts, dramatic presentations, sports competitions, and parent interview evenings. I would also encourage you to consider participating in our School Council. Our first School Council meeting of the year will be Wednesday, September 24th at 7:00 pm in the school's library.

Please check our school calendar regularly for upcoming events.

I am committed to serving the students and parents of the Heart Lake community and I am greatly looking forward to working with you all.
