In light of the current Public Health situation in Ontario due to COVID-19, HCDSB will once again be offering an option for Grades 9-12 students to learn fully remotely.

We are are asking parents to indicate if they would like your secondary school-aged child to attend school in a remote learning setting.

What to Expect in September

  • HCDSB will offer a quadmester delivery model to all secondary students for the 2021-2022 school year. 
  • September 2021 – January 2022 will consist of two quadmesters, where students will be enrolled in either full-time, in-person instruction or remote learning.
  • This will include 300 minutes of instruction each day – two (2) courses with 150 minutes of instruction each, over a 10-week period (quadmester). 

Secondary Remote Learning Registration Form

Please complete this form ONLY if you would like to register your child in Secondary Remote Learning at HCDSB for the 2021-2022 school year. 

If you would like your child to attend school in-person, no further action is required. 

Important Notes

  • If you are registering more than one child in HCDSB secondary remote learning, please fill out a separate form for each child*Note: you will need your child’s Ontario Education Number (OEN) to submit this form. The OEN can be found on a recent report card.
