I hope that you all had a restful break and are ready to make that final push to the end of semester 1. We are going to be moving ahead with exams and final tests. I have included a link to some common troubleshooting tips with Proctorio. We encourage students and families to review it prior to exams. Please note that if a student does not complete their final test/exam then they will not earn the credit.
We have also created a sample test that students can complete as many times as they like. We highly encourage students to attempt this test an hour before each of their exams starts to ensure everything is up to date and working. Teachers will be requiring students to complete a test leading up to the exam using Proctorio to ensure students are comfortable with using Proctorio prior to their exams.
Just as a reminder, students were sent a copy of their exam schedule by email. If this email has been misplaced they can access it by logging into their Student Profile from either the Student Guide or our website.
The last day to hand in overdue work is January 14th at noon. Students who have independent study units (ISU) or culminating tasks may have deadlines after this date and must adhere to those deadlines.
I know that this has been another busy semester and I am so proud of our students who have been working extremely hard. I know our program asks a lot of our students but it also prepares them very well for what lies beyond high school whether it be the workplace, apprenticeship, college, university, or something else. Our students are outstanding and we are very proud of them!
As we approach the end of 2021 I would like to thank you for the flexibility that you have demonstrated as we have all adapted to the impacts of COVID-19. This has been a very challenging year for all of us and I encourage you to find ways to take time to rest, relax, and rejuvenate over the break.
Reminder to everyone that the school will be closed from December 20th to December 31st. We will be responding to email and phone messages throughout the week of January 3rd.
On behalf of the entire staff at the VLC, I would like to wish everyone a warm and relaxing winter break. I hope that each of you are able to connect with family and friends in a safe manner over the break. We look forward to seeing everyone back on January 3rd.

Miterm report cards were sent out to student’s VLC email addresses as well as their parents/guardians’ emails if under 18 this morning.
Within the VLC some students may have two midterm report cards attached to the email with some of their courses listed on each.
Please note CHV2O will not be included on the midterm report card as it is a final mark and will be reported at the end of the semester.
Should you have any questions or concerns, please contact us via email ([email protected]).
EQAO has announced that there will be two writing sessions for the OSSLT students this year. The first in the Fall and a second session in the spring. The Ministry has also announced students graduating in the 2021-22 (including the summer) school year will have the OSSLT requirement waived.
VLC students who are in grade 11 or grade 12 students who will not be graduating this year will be able to write in the fall session. Instructions for signing up have been shared through email and in the student guide.
VLC students who are in grade 10 this year will write in the spring session. No action is required for grade 10 students at this time. Additional information will be provided closer to the spring.
