We hope that you all had a great summer!
Our Student Information System will be offline until August 20, so we will not be able to do course changes until the first days of school. To assist in your planning, we are posting the courses that we are offering next year below.
The first day of school for all students is Tuesday, August 21.

We are looking forward to seeing all students on Thursday! #mandatory
Students: please invite parents, guardians, family friends, siblings etc. to share in your learning; this is a wonderful opportunity to highlight the incredible work you've done and to reflect on where you're headed next.
The cafeteria will be open throughout the evening.
Whitehorse high school students who normally use city transit to get to and from school can take their local school bus routes if they are not able to take City of Whitehorse transit due to possible service interruptions and if there is space available on the school bus route.
If a student needs to take their local school bus route, no registration is required at this time. Bus drivers have been directed to pick up the additional students at the regular designated school bus stops.
Visit yukon.ca/en/education-and-schools/kindergarten-grade-12/find-school-bus-schedule to find the bus routes closest to your home.
Parents and students should also be checking the City of Whitehorse’s website for updates on city transit routes: http://www.whitehorse.ca/about-whitehorse/2018-strike-information-page.
If you have any questions, please contact Judith Steele at firstname.lastname@example.org or 867-667-5172.
