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 Head of School or guidance counsellor submit in writing to the Summer School Principal, John Doma, indicating their approval for you to take this course. Also, you must have your parent/guardian email John Doma indicating their approval for you to take this course. All NON-HTS students will be required to submit a Credit Counselling Form which the student's home school’s guidance department will provide.
New textbooks can be ordered when registering for Summer School via School Cash Online. 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
During the summer, students are not required to wear a uniform. However, an appropriate school summer dress is expected.
- Any type of t-shirt or polo shirt
- Sleeveless tops
- Shorts, skirts and dresses with a 3” inseam or greater
- Jeans and yoga pants
- Shoes, sandals and flip flops
- Crop tops
- Strapless or spaghetti strap tops or dresses
- Shorts, skirts or dresses shorter than a 3” inseam
- No hats in the building
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 the Summer School Principal, 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. HTS' code of conduct will be shared with students on the first day of school.
