Timetable Changes for the 2021-22 School Year

The week of August 30-September 3, Guidance will be contacting students and making the necessary changes for students who:

  • Have a timetable conflict
  • Need a change because of summer school
  • Failed a course in June
  • Interviewed with the Vice Principal as a new registrant

If you fall into one of these categories, you will be contacted by Guidance directly sometime this week.

These issues must be resolved first as students do not have complete timetables with classes to attend.

Guidance will not be accepting requests for course changes not related to the above until the first week of school.

If you have a complete timetable, you are expected to attend your classes until you meet with a Guidance Counsellor. 

Students with incomplete timetables will be our priority, followed by New Registrants and Potential Graduates, Grade 9 students and then Grade 10-11 course change requests.  Some classes are full and Wait Lists have been started.  

More information regarding how to sign up for a Guidance appointment to change your timetable will be shared with students during the first week back at school.  

Please do not come to the school, email Guidance, or call the Guidance Office the week of August 30 expecting to change your courses if you have a complete timetable.  You will be able to meet with a Counsellor the first week back to school.

We thank you for your patience and understanding as we work through the timetable change process. 

New Student Registration
Students new to Laura Secord Secondary School and not previously registered must call the school's Main Office at 905-934-8501 to arrange an admission interview with our Administration.

Please arrange to bring the following documentation with you to the admission interview:
1.   up-to-date record of academic achievement (transcript, credit summary, and report card)
2.   proof of birth/citizenship (birth certificate, passport, etc.)
3.   proof of address (utility bill, bill of sale, rental agreement, etc.)

New International Students (born outside of Canada) Registration
If you were born outside of Canada, even if you are currently attending school within Ontario, or previously attended a DSBN school, you must go through the DSBN Welcome Centre to assess your status and other paperwork. Once you have completed the paperwork and any assessments through the Welcome Centre, they will forward documentation to the school and we will reach out when we return in September.
