Parent and Student email July 4, 2023
Posted on 07/04/2023

We have now wrapped up the 2022-2023 school year - congratulations to our students who have finished the year!   To our graduating class of 2023, we wish you all the best in all that lies ahead.

A few reminders pertinent to summer that were previously sent out on June 23 are included below.

On behalf of the SRB Staff, I wanted to wish you and your families a wonderful summer break. We will be in touch in late August for returning SRB Students.  Stay cool and safe this summer and enjoy the downtime!
We look forward to welcoming students back on September 5.

Community Service/Volunteer Hours

A reminder that SUMMER is an excellent time for students to complete their 40 hours of Community Involvement.  Any student is eligible to begin working on this high school graduation requirement after completion of Grade 8! This means incoming grade 9 students can start now.   More information is on the guidance website.


Google Accounts for Graduating Students/Students Leaving the School District If you are graduating or leaving the OCDSB, be sure to save any documents you want to keep from your Google account to a personal account. Students will not be able to access their Google account, including files and emails, once they leave the district.  Accounts will be closed as of August 8, 2023 for students graduating or leaving the district. 

Graduating Students Diploma Packages (Diploma, Transcript, Certificates, Grad Composite, etc.) will be available for pickup on July 4-7 from 9:00am-1:00pm.  

SRB Office Summer Hours

SRB will be a Summer School location.  The school is not open for SRB students during the summer unless they are attending/enrolled in SRB summer school.  
SRB is private property (including outdoor areas surrounding the school and courts) - students need to remain off property outside of regular school hours.

The SRB Main Office will be open for inquiries July 4-21.  

The School will be closed for the OCDSB Summer Shutdown July 31-August 18.
