SEPT 25th: BUS ROUTE CHANGES:

We just received notice from the Town of CBS that starting on Monday morning, there will be further road closure due to the ongoing construction work in the Indian Pond Dr area, affecting bus routes for Upper Gullies, Frank Roberts and Queen Elizabeth.

Buses are already detoured around Indian Pond Dr. This will continue until further notice.


In addition to this, Indian Pond Rd between Conception Bay Hwy and Indian Pond Estates will also be closed. Students living in this area will be serviced by bus stops at the following locations:

  • Conception Bay Hwy @ Indian Pond Rd

This detour will also be in place until further notice.

TEACHER PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT DAY: There will be no classes for students on Friday, September 22 as teachers have a Professional Development Day.

CURRICULUM NIGHT: Thursday, September 21st at 7:00. Parents are asked to bring along copies of their children's schedules. Parents will attend their first class (Day 1) and then rotate through all classes on their child's schedule including the first two class on Day 2.

November Public Exam Supplementaries:

Good evening. I was just informed by Parsons Transportation that Indian Pond Drive is inaccessible for bussing until further notice. Students living in this area, will be picked up at the intersection of Indian Pond Drive and Indian Pond Road or Indian Pond Estates. As soon as the road issue is resolved, students will be picked up at their usual bus stops. Thank you and have a great evening.

Due to the ongoing construction work in the Indian Pond Rd Area (Indian Pond Rd, Indian Pond Dr and Indian Pond Estate), bus routes will be starting 5 minutes earlier than previous. Also, students will be serviced at or near their addresses, to minimize students traveling on foot through the construction area. These temporary measures will begin on the morning of Wednesday, September 13, and will remain in place until the construction is complete. When we receive notice that the construction is complete, we will send out notification to you all again to confirm the end of these temporary measures.


Queen Elizabeth Regional High - Route 17-130-1 will begin at 7:20 a.m.

IMPORTANT DATES & TIMES

For SEPTEMBER 2017

The class schedules assigned to students in June may change throughout the summer. Students may only request course changes if a programming change is required (e.g. changing from academic to basic), there is an error in the schedule (e.g. missing a course), or if a student needs a specific course in order to graduate. Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate changes based on personal preferences; all schedules are final.

Students will also receive a number of report card inserts including a letter pertaining to September busing and school opening time, an information sheet for September, and summer school information (along with documents containing signatures required for summer school registration). Students may leave following homeroom but busing is not provided till 12:30.

REPORT CARDS WILL BE RELEASED DURING THE HOME ROOM SESSION AND NOT BEFORE. NO REPORT CARDS WILL BE RELEASED FROM THE MAIN OFFICE TILL HOMEROOM SESSIONS ARE OVER.

Report cards not picked up will not be mailed out as the cost to the school is too expensive. Report cards can be picked up at the main office on Friday, June 23 from 8:30-12:30 as well. It is very important that every effort is made to pick up report cards, especially for students who failed courses, as report cards contain signed documents necessary for Summer School and/or Supplementary Exam registration.
