Important Update - High School Exam Schedule

Important OCSB High School Exam Update

Because of the two snow days that have taken place during our high school exam schedule, a new exam schedule was posted yesterday by the OCSB that required some students to write two exams in the same day.  Parents, students and educators asked for the schedule to be reconsidered.   With that input in mind other options were considered.  All exams have now been rescheduled to January 25th, 28th, 29th and 30th.  That is, all exams have been bumped by two days.
The schedule is as follows:
Friday, January 25th, 2019 - Period 1 Exams (8:30)
Monday, January 28th, 2019 - Period 2 Exams (8:30)
Tuesday, January 29th, 2019 - Period 3 Exams (8:30)
Wednesday, January 30th, 2019 - Period 4 Exams (8:30)

January 30th remains a PD Day for grade 7 and 8 students.  It is now an exam day for our grade 9 to 12 students.

The exam schedules at all schools for all students will be affected (not just for school bus riders).    
OSTA will provide regular bus service on January 30th.

Semester 2 classes begin Thursday, January 31st.

If you have any questions, please call the main office. 

OSTA - January 24th busing decision - impact on exams

posted Jan 23, 2019, 12:34 PM by Brent Hopkins   [ updated Jan 23, 2019, 4:15 PM ]

OSTA will evaluate weather and road conditions between 4-5:30am tomorrow morning, January 24, 2019. A decision regarding any service cancellations will be made the morning of January 24, 2019 and communicated to the public no later than 6:15am.

In the event of a second “snow day” where yellow school bus transportation is cancelled during the high school exam period, the following will occur:

All exams will be bumped by one day except for the last exam which is currently scheduled for the morning of Tuesday, January 29. This exam will be written in the afternoon of Tuesday, January 29.

For example, if January 24 is a snow day and all school bus transportation for our board is cancelled, then:

  • all exams now scheduled for January 24 will be written on Friday, January 25
  • all exams scheduled for January 25 will be written on Monday, January 28
  • all exams scheduled for January 28 will be written in the morning Tuesday, January 29
  • all exams scheduled for January 29 will be written in the afternoon Tuesday, January 29

January 30 remains a PD Day.

The exam schedules at all schools for all students will be affected (not just for school bus riders).

During a snow day, the school will be open, but exams will not be written.
