Adult High School Credit Information

Welcome Back!!

We have been waiting for you!!

 

We will be starting classes beginning the week of September 21st, 2020.  

Our Credit classes will be hybrid, which means that we are able to have teacher led, face-to-face in-class times for the classes. Be advised that students will be assigned a Cohort and they are to attend on their specific day. Your teacher will be providing you with further details.  Assessments will also be done in class where possible.

  

However, we will be following the situation with COVID19 very closely and be adhering to the protocols of the local health unit. Therefore these support hours will be dependant on the procedures necessary to keep everyone safe.

If you would like to register for a course, email us at cfloa@ldcsb.ca and you will be connected to a Guidance Counsellor.  Your future begins immediately.
