Specific to students at Signal Hill Elementary:

“Elementary (Kindergarten to Grade 7) Final Report Cards
The recent ESO was limited to the provision of final marks for Grades 10 to 12 students. However, many of our teachers had already completed their full or condensed report cards prior to the June 16th, 2014 walk out. As such, some of our Kindergarten to grade 7 students will receive a version of a year-end report card. All other students will receive a letter from the school principal indicating their promotion statement and reiterating that their year-end progress information will be provided in some format following the labour
dispute. Your school principal will contact you to outline your school’s report distribution process. We are hoping to have any reports ready for distribution between Monday, June 30, 2014 and Friday, July 4, 2014.
We realize how important reporting is to parents. If you do not receive a Report Card, your principal will inform you as soon as we are able to have teachers confirm each child’s year end information.”
