A message from Virtual High School regarding Registration for Quadmester 2

A message from the Virtual High School in regards to Quadmester 2 Registration:

Parents wishing to transfer their student (or themselves for those who are 18+) to the Kawartha Pine Ridge Virtual High School (KPRVHS) must contact their home school guidance department. Parents should also contact guidance to request a transfer from KPRVHS to their homeschool.

Parents requesting a transfer to KPRVHS should be aware that;
• Students will no longer have a timetable at their home school and course availability may change if the student chooses to return later in the school year. The student will be registered with the VHS and no longer registered at their home school.
• KPRVHS does not offer all the courses that a regular high school offers so it may not be possible to match courses.
• KPRVHS is not able to offer specialized programs such International Baccalaureate (IB), Skilled Trades related courses
• Students are required to participate in a minimum of 225 minutes of daily scheduled synchronous learning between the hours of 8:30 am and 2:30 pm.

Requests to transfer will be considered up to October 30th so that appropriate staffing can be put in place to support the changes in enrolment. Quadmester two starts on November 23rd.
