NLSS Summer Transition Camps

NLSS is inviting our incoming Grade 9 students to a Summer Transition Camp next week.

New Grade 9 students can attend either on Monday, Aug 16th, or Tuesday, Aug 17th. The sessions run from 9:00am to 1:30pm with lunch provided. Please contact the school if you need to confirm your spot at the transition camp, or to register a new student (705.336.2900).

The NLSS Transition Camp will highlight hands-on activities that promote inclusive education, student well-being, and communication with peers. The program will also include mini-sessions on mental health and wellness. It is a great way to get started here at Northern Lights Secondary School!

In order to keep our school as safe as possible, Grade 9 students attending the Summer Transition Camps need to complete a COVID-19 self-screen prior to arrival at NLSS. You can access the Ontario COVID-19 self-screening tool at: https://covid-19.ontario.ca/school-screening

Students will need to find their own transportation to NLSS for the transition camp. NLSS transportation will begin Tuesday, August 24 (Grade 9 Orientation Day). More details will be shared via email regarding transportation and school start-up next week.
