Message to M.E.S. Families

School attendance:

  • We want to stress the importance of informing us if your child(ren) will be attending school. If you have previously indicated that your child will not be attending and you change your mind and decide to send your child to school, we absolutely need to know, at least one full week in advance. This is to allow us the necessary time to make sure we are able to provide a safe and secure environment to our staff and all of our students.  Please phone the school or email at (gravest@etsb.qc.ca).                                                 

Should you change your mind and want to stop sending your child(ren) to school, you must notify the school immediately for logistical reasons.

Transportation:

Parents are asked, whenever it is possible, to drive their own child(ren) to school.  For families with shared custody, due to the restrictions for transportation, we can accommodate only one address per student.  For any changes the transportation department will reevaluate routes on Mondays. You must give one week’s notice. (ex. For your child to have transportation on June 1 you must inform us by Monday May 25th.) If you no longer require transportation, it is important to advise the school as spaces are limited.

Evaluations and Student marks:

Elementary:
For elementary school students, their final results will be determined with the results of term 1 and 2.  Your child’s final assessment in term 3 will be indicated as successful, non-successful pr not evaluated. If your child is at risk of not being successful, he/she may be asked to submit some work to demonstrate his/her abilities.  Although attendance at school is not mandatory, online learning is available and we encourage you to support your child to participate in these continued learning opportunities.

Secondary school:

Schools are offering online and at a distance classes. As new content that is a prerequisite for the next year may be presented at this time, we strongly recommend that you encourage your son/daughter to attend/follow the online classes. Not only will this ease their transition into a new grade level or in the case of post-secondary a new school, it will also offer them some socialization and interaction with classmates and teachers.

Evaluation –

For students in Secondary 1 to 3, your child’s final assessment in term 3 will be indicated as successful, non-successful or not evaluated. If your child is at risk of not being successful, he/she may be asked by his/her teacher(s) to submit some work to demonstrate his/her abilities to be successful.

For students in Secondary 4 & 5 evaluation and the final assessment is obtained from the results of term 1 and 2.  In term 3, an indication of successful, non-successful or not evaluated and a final grade will be included in percentage.  If your child is at risk of not being successful, he/she may be asked by their teacher(s) to submit work that demonstrates that he/she has acquired/learnt the required competencies.
