Hello M.M. Robinson Families!

5th Week Reports
These reports were emailed home by October 11th for all Grade 9 students and Grade 10, 11, and 12 students with marks of 60% or below.
For Grade 9 students, the report is to indicate student’s progress in the course to date. Indicators that the credit may be at risk include marks below 50% on individual assignments, zero’s or “no mark” entries.
For Grade 10, 11 and 12 students, the progress report is an indication that the credit is at risk.  The individual course teacher can provide additional clarification either by phone, email, or at the Student Progress Night on Thursday, October 18.
Email addresses for all staff are available on our school website, HERE. Please feel free to contact the classroom teacher(s) for additional information. Attendance and punctuality information can be obtained through the parent portal located on the board’s website at www.hdsb.ca.
