Parents of St. John Catholic High School Students (HIGH SCHOOL ONLINE STUDENTS ONLY)
If your child has signed up for online only, they will be taking two classes per quadmester (unless they are a Grade 12 student and have a spare). Your child will be expected to log on for 8:00 am for their first period class and then log onto their second period class at 10:05 am. They will be expected to be logged on for the full two periods, just as if they were at school, in class.
The classes will either take place on Microsoft Teams or Brightspace/D2L. The teachers have emailed their online students through the student’s CDSBEO email address to inform them which location to find the class.
Students can access their school email (OUTLOOK), Teams or Brightspace by going to www.mycdsbeo.com and entering their username and password. If you have a problem accessing your password, please email Mrs. Minnema at Janina.Minnema@cdsbeo.on.ca for help.
Attendance will be taken at the start of each period. If an online student is not online when attendance is taken they will be marked absent and you will receive a call from the school indicating they are “not at school/in class”. If they log on late please ensure they let their teacher know they’ve arrived, as the teacher might not see them log on, if they’re away from their laptop.
At 1:10 pm all students are expected to be back online for their Period 1 class and at 1:40 pm for their Period 2 class. This is the portion of the day where all students in the class will be working online with their teacher.
We appreciate your patience and understanding throughout these unprecedented times.
