The following outlines our guidelines and approval process for summer school courses:Course Approval Process
HTS Students ONLY: Parent's approval must be emailed to Tracy Howard
for confirmation. The HTS Student Success Centre must also approve the student’s participation in the chosen course.
Important: Students who register for a summer course at the HTS Summer Program MUST complete the add/drop form
if the summer course registration affects the student's original schedule submitted to the school via Xello (formally known as Career Cruising). The forms must be submitted to the Student Success Centre otherwise, students may have difficulty acquiring a revised schedule that meets their needs in September.
NON-HTS Students ONLY: You must have your headmaster or guidance counsellor email John Doma
indicating their approval for you to take this course. You must have your parent email John Doma
indicating their approval for you to take this course. Your parent should also include your school’s name, and your overall average on your last report card in this email.
New textbooks can be ordered through our summer course registration system. Please “check out/click” the appropriate textbook in the course registration section and it will be added to your fees. The book will be available at HTS on the first day of classes.
Depending on the course, there could be additional course fees such as a field trip or a guest speaker.Summer School Dress Code
HTS student dress should have a neat and modest appearance, allowing for personal expression of style while maintaining respect for the school and the individual. All clothing must be clean and in good repair. The following items are unacceptable for wearing at HTS Summer Program:
- No hats, or headgear
- No midriff showing either when standing or sitting
- No tube tops
- No spaghetti straps (straps must be at least 3 to 5 cm wide)
- T-shirts must not contain offensive pictures or language (depicting alcohol, drugs, tobacco, sexual content and other items considered offensive by the faculty)
- Undergarments must not be visible
- Spikes, chains, dog collars are not allowed
- Pants must fit properly on the waist
- Shorts/skirts must be of an acceptable length (no shorter than mid-thigh)
- Shorts/skirts and other items of clothing may not be tight, clingy, mesh or see-through
- Tops cannot be low cut
Students in violation of these guidelines will be asked by faculty to change into appropriate clothing. If they cannot do so, they will be sent to the Director of Summer Programs and their parents will be contacted.
Summer school attendance is compulsory to receive course credit. Students can only be absent up to two days.
We maintain strict registration and attendance procedures to help ensure the safety and security of all students and to properly track each child’s personal and medical information. Attendance will be taken and tracked every day by the summer school teacher.
Please phone reception 905-737-1114 or email John Doma
if your child will be late or absent. If you know in advance that your child will be absent from class, please inform their summer school teacher. If the phone lines are busy, your call will be sent to voicemail. Please leave a message with your child’s name, course they are absent from, and any pertinent information.
Although we will work hard to encourage and promote positive and healthy student deportment, please note that if your child does not adhere to the HTS code of conduct expectations, it is our right to remove your child from the course without refund.
