IMPORTANT UPDATE REGARDING COURSE CHANGES
We would like to update you on our timetable preparations for the coming year. We have seen, and received emails from, hundreds of students this week and Belmont Counsellors have worked diligently to ensure that we do the best we can to meet the program needs of each student. I would like to thank our counsellors and front office staff for putting in an extraordinary effort this week.
We would like to remind you that we will be closed for course changes today (Friday August 28th). We will be accepting registration paperwork. Counsellors will resume meeting with students on a first-come, first served basis on Monday. Our office hours next week will be:
Monday, Aug. 31 – Wednesday, Sept. 2 : 9am-12pm and 1pm-3pm. We will be closed September 3rd and 4th

Once again, thank you for your patience and understanding. We are energized by your enthusiasm to get back to school!
Please note that the entrance to the school is through the rear doors.
We have shifted up a gear in getting ready for September 8th!
On August 13th, we mailed out student timetables with instructions on how to make changes. We are open for timetable adjustments and new registrations from August 25th to September 2nd (counsellors will not be meeting with students Friday, August 28). This will be at the old Belmont school. All these services are out of the main office and not the counselling area.
- Main office open from 9am to 3:30 for Belmont support
- The location is at the old school 3067 Jacklin Road
- Open August 25th until September 2nd
Please read the three updates that also went out on August 13th for specific information on the state of the new school.
The first day of school is Tuesday, September 8. All schools will be in session for one-half day.
This is for grade 9 and 10 students. All students attend on September 9th
