Information for Parents
Communication with parents is important to us. Parents are asked to check their son’s or daughter’s student agendas regularly to see when assignments are due, tests are scheduled and sports teams are playing. Ask specific questions regarding your student’s day. Remember assignment completion and attendance are two key components of success.
Ontario Students have a community hours obligation to meet prior to graduation wherein they must volunteer 40 hours of their time over the course of their high school experience. We have made this form available online in order to make this a more convenient and readily accessible document of your's student's activities. Click HERE for the form.

Bayside students have a class called MSIP (Multi Subject Instructional Period). We take fifteen minutes from every class in the day and use that time to create the MSIP class. This class begins with twenty minutes of silent reading or other work, followed by time to get help in or complete assignments for other classes. We find that this is useful for our students because it eases their work load and offers opportunities for additional help when needed.
Bayside's school year is divided into two 18-week semesters. Semester I runs from September to the end of January. Semester II runs from February to late June. The school day runs from approximately 8:10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and is comprised of six 60-minute periods. Students take four classes and have one period for lunch and one Multi-Subject Instruction Period.
These are read to the students by the home room teacher, and are available on the desktop of the networked computers in the school.
Volunteers must complete the Vulnerable Sector Screening Request.
