ACCOMMODATING THE OSSLT AT LCVI APRIL 10, 2018
Tomorrow, many students at LCVI will be writing the Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test (OSSLT). Passing this test is a requirement for students to earn their Ontario Secondary School Diploma.
In order to accommodate the administration of this test and to allow students the best opportunity for success, there are some changes to the regular schedule at Calvin Park and some additional temporary measures we will put in place on Tuesday, April 10, 2018 to support students and staff at LCVI.
· Lunch Recess: 11:05 a.m. – 11:45 a.m. (typically 12:15 p.m. – 12:55 p.m.)
· Lunch Eating Time: 11:45 a.m. – 12:05 p.m. (typically 11:55 a.m. – 12:55 p.m.)
· Period 4: 12:05 p.m. – 12:55 p.m. (typically 11:05 a.m. – 11:55 a.m.)
No Cafeteria Service
There is no cafeteria service for Calvin Park students on Tuesday, April 10, 2018. Students should bring a lunch to school. If students forget, our lunch program will continue to operate as per usual out of Room 214 beginning April 10 at 11:45 a.m. and any student may access it as required.
Lower-Tech Activities Periods 1 to 3
To assist with bandwidth issues over WiFi, and to give priority network access to secondary students, elementary students will continue to be engaged in rich learning, though perhaps via lower tech activities in the morning.
Personal Devices to Airplane Mode
Elementary and secondary students will be asked to switch personal devices to airplane mode on the morning of April 10 as another way to assist with priority access to WiFi for students writing the OSSLT.
As always, in the event you need to reach your child, or in case of an emergency, please call our office at 613-542-2796 and we will be able to get you in touch with them.
We thank everyone in advance for your support in ensuring the best possible writing conditions for our secondary students to achieve success on the OSSLT.
