Planning for January 2021
Semester Two Reminders
Eastside Secondary School is fortunate to have the knowledge and skills of Ashley, our public health nurse, supporting the wellbeing of our students. Ashley is onsite every Wednesday in the Guidance Office. She is committed to helping students to navigate all aspects of their health.
As the pandemic continues, we know it can be difficult to keep up with public health precautions. We are reaching out to parents and caregivers to help us as an Eastside Secondary School staff to help us keep our students safe. Please read the letter provided here for an important message about how Raven families can support us in our fight against COVID-19 at ESS.
Discover the Foundations and International Baccalaureate Programs at ESS!
The International Baccalaureate Program is designed to develop citizens who become lifelong learners by way of exposure to curriculum which stimulates their curiosity, fosters a spirit of discovery, and inspires an enjoyment of learning. Eastside Secondary School is proud to offer students the challenging, enriching experience of both the IB program and our Grade 9 and 10 Foundations program. Foundations allows students to develop the knowledge and skills required to succeed in the International Baccalaureate Program and in university.

Raven families are asked to think about whether their students will learn at in-person school or virtual school starting in February (Semester 2). Advance planning is required to ensure staff are in place for safe and effective school operations; your cooperation is appreciated.
