School Opening Information

Grade 8 Move In Day

Unfortunately, due to the ongoing labour dispute, we will have to postpone our planned Grade 8 Move In and New Student Orientation Day. We do not have new a date or time scheduled yet, but once we have official notification of the school start date, we will likely have a ‘move in afternoon’ the day before the start of school. Please check back for further updates.

School Starts

We are hoping to be open for the start of the new school year on Tuesday, September 2nd, but we are waiting for confirmation … day-to-day. Please check back regularly for updates.

New Student Registration

Parents and students new to the district can access school registration forms at this address: Registration Forms

Please download and complete Email Consent, Freedom of Information and Student Registration forms.

If you think your child will require bus transportation to and from school, please download the School Bus-Transit Transportation for at this address:

Transportation Form

When the labour dispute is resolved and schools are open, we will be processing new student registrations as soon as possible. Having the forms filled out in advance will help speed up the process. Please have your child’s birth certificate with you at the time of registration.

Student Timetables and Course Selections

Student timetables will be distributed in an extended homeroom class on the first day of school. Homeroom lists will be posted in the multipurpose room.

Counselors will coordinate course selections for new students as a first priority when school starts. Current grade 12 students needing to change their timetables can signup for appointments on the first day of school. Priority will be given to grade 12’s and then to students with credit issues. 

Passport to Education Program

A Passport to Education is a small booklet that contains stamps awarded to students for achievement in academic and non-academic areas. Students can use their passport award towards the cost of their post-secondary education or job-training program.

The Passport to Education Program will be phased out over the next three years beginning in September 2013 for grade 10 stamps allocation, followed by grade 11 stamps allocation in September 2014 and grade 12 stamps allocation in September 2015.  

As two-thirds of the weighting must be on the academic component using a student’s course grades for the best five provincially authorized courses and/or Board Authority authorized (BAA) courses that result in a percent or letter grade, JL Crowe awaits confirmation of student final marks that may include students who write or re-write exams in August of their graduation year. We endeavour to have grade 12 passport to education booklets / stamps available for students by mid-October.

Passport to Education stamps expire five years from September 30th of a student’s expected graduating year.

Edmodo

We are transitioning the school from several different online communication tools to Edmodo. Your child has a single unique code that allows you to see and receive notifications from their teachers (if they are currently using Edmodo). Please take a minute to look at your child's Edmodo page (have them show you) and then set up your own account in Edmodo.

How to retrieve parent codes:

The code for parent accounts can be retrieved from your child’s Edmodo account.  The code will be located on the right panel, below the notifications section.  Link: Edmodo How to for Parents
