Limited busing is provided free of charge.  The bus schedule is available online at mid-to-late June.  Students coming to school on a bus are reminded that this is a courtesy service. Unacceptable behaviour will result in loss of bus privileges.  Please contact 519-744-7575 if you have any questions.

The First Day

Alphabetical name lists will be posted in the school foyer showing each registered student’s room number and timetable.  Each student who registers for summer school will receive a copy of their registration form.  All students should bring their copy as proof of registration.  If the student’s name is not found on the alphabetical list, the student MUST provide the office staff with this copy in order to enroll in their course. We ONLY call students whose course have been cancelled.  All other students must report to the school on the first day.

If You Miss The First Day

Students who do not attend the first day, without making prior arrangements, will be removed from the course.


In order to qualify for enough hours to obtain a credit, regular attendance is a must.  After three (3) consecutive absences, the student will be removed  from their course.    Please report to the office to sign-in when you are late to school. Please call the Summer School site to report any absences. DO NOT CALL the Alternative and Continuing Education office as it will be closed.

Final Exams

All courses will have a final evaluation on the last day of school, Tuesday, July 28, 2020.  We are unable to accommodate alternate dates or times for final evaluations.  Missed tests and exams will result in insufficient evidence being available for the teacher to be able to determine successful achievement of the course expectations.  This may result in a credit not being issued.  A medical note from a licensed practitioner is required for absence due to illness in such cases.


Since students attend Summer School on a voluntary basis in order to further their education and since Summer School takes place over a short period of time, it is extremely important that students maintain high standards of attendance and behaviour.  Students who attend Summer School should aim to make their stay productive, pleasant and to:

  • Adhere to all procedures, rules, and regulations
  • Complete assignments, homework and routine tests on time
  • Cooperate with staff and students to create a positive learning environment
  • Attend and participate regularly in class
  • Respect the rights and dignity of every person in the school


Sir John A. Macdonald Secondary School – Students may park in the two lower lots behind the school.

Huron Heights Secondary School – Students may park in the back lot, furthest from the football field.

Jacob Hespeler Secondary School – Students may park in the lot on the west side of the school.  Cars parked in front of the school or parked elsewhere will be ticketed.


In accordance with Provincial Law, smoking/vaping is not permitted on school property at any time for students, staff, and visitors.  Those who choose not to follow this direction effectively indicate that they do not want to attend Summer School.


A selection of food items that meet provincial guidelines for healthy nutrition in public schools is available through vending machines services only.  No cafeteria service is available.  Food is allowed only in the cafeteria.  Please place garbage in containers and/or in recycling bins.


No writing is allowed in the textbooks.  On receipt of the textbook, please report any major defacement to the teacher immediately.  The teacher will then make a note of this for future reference.  If the student does not complete the course, textbooks must be returned within three (3) days.  Courses are incomplete until the student’s record is clear with respect to textbooks.


Computers are available on a limited basis for students to complete research assignments.  The WRDSB “Acceptable Use” policy is in effect.  Students who damage software or hardware or use computers for inappropriate purposes will be dismissed from Summer School.  Students who access inappropriate internet sites will be banned from further use of computers at Summer School.
