Understanding the New Timetable:


Our Guidance Department has been working tirelessly through the weeks leading up to the reopening of schools, and have had to make many modifications to our system to create student timetables that follow the Ministry guidelines.  Parents are now seeing the result of that work in a rather confusing timetable.  We understand how difficult the timetable is to comprehend and hope that the following resources may be of assistance to you.

 

The first quadmester is represented on the student’s timetable by the top left square.  Days 1 and 2 on the timetable represent Week 1, and Days 3 and 4 represent Week 2.  Periods 1 and 2 on the timetable make up their morning class (8:30 to 11 am) and Periods 3 and 4 make up the afternoon (on-line) class (12:20 to 2:50 pm).  Classes follow a repeating 4-week cycle, as follows:

 

Week 1A

Week 2C

Week 1B

Week 2D

 

Definitions to know:

Asynchronous - students are working at home on their own (alternating mornings)

Synchronous - students are attending an online class WITH their teacher (EVERY afternoon)

 

Your child will belong to 2 cohorts each quadmester. If their timetable shows they are in a classroom for Day 1 (Week 1), they are in Cohort A.  If the timetable shows they are in a classroom on Day 2 (Week 1), they are in Cohort B.  Again, if the timetable shows they are in a classroom on Day 3 (Week 2), they are in Cohort C.  If they are in a classroom on Day 4 (Week 2), they are in Cohort D. On the mornings students are not in-school, they will be doing asynchronous learning.

 

Please note that afternoon classes are ENTIRELY online and ALL cohorts are to attend EVERY DAY.

 

The following is a basic outline of which days students attend in person classes:

 

Week 1A (September 14-18, Oct 12-16, Nov 9-13)

Cohort A will attend Monday, Wednesday and Friday morning

Cohort B will attend Tuesday and Thursday morning

 

Week 2C (Sept 21-25, Oct 19-23)

Cohort C will attend Monday, Wednesday and Friday morning

Cohort D will attend Tuesday and Thursday morning

 

Week 1B (Sept 28-Oct 2, Oct 26-30)

Cohort A will attend Monday and Wednesday morning

Cohort B will attend Tuesday, Thursday and Friday morning

 

Week 2D (Oct 5-9, Nov 2-6)

Cohort C will attend Monday and Wednesday morning

Cohort D will attend Tuesday, Thursday and Friday morning

 

All weeks, all cohorts attend online classes every afternoon.

 

Several of our staff members have compiled calendars in different formats for the purposes of making the schedule a little clearer.  Please see the following and hopefully one of these formats will make it a little easier for you to understand (please note that for ease, many staff are referring to the week 1, period 1 and 2 (morning) class as period 1 and the week 2, period 3 and 4 (afternoon) class as period 2.

 

Format 1:

Final Quad 1 Calendar 2020-2021


Format 2:

Academic calendar September 2020

Academic calendar October 2020


Our principal, Mr. Wetzel, has also put together the following video to help explain how to read the timetable.

​​Again, we understand how difficult and confusing it is to make sense of the new student timetables.  We hope that these resources may have made at least some of it a little clearer, but please feel free to call the school office at 416-393-5531 (x0) for assistance from office staff.  The office is open from 8 am to 4 pm.
