Today at 11:15 am Stratford Police informed the school that an evacuation was necessary due to a leak near the school.
Staff and students evacuated the school by proceeding to St. Vincent Street. After 20 minutes the leak was contained. Students and staff returned to the school at 11:40 am and resumed regular activities.
Thank you to the students and staff for responding in a very quick and orderly fashion today.
First Day Schedule
Welcome back to SCSS for the 2018-19 school year. On Tuesday Sept 5, all grade 7-8 students shall report to the cafeteria in the school located on the bottom floor prior to 9 am.
School staff and administration will be present in the cafeteria. Students will be organized into homerooms at this time (lists will be posted in the cafeteria).
There will be a short assembly in the cafeteria. Students will then follow their homeroom teacher to a class. The homeroom teacher will work with the homeroom for half of the morning. At the end of that session, students will begin regular classes.
We look forward to seeing each and every student on Tuesday morning !

2019-2020 School Year
We understand that parents and students have questions and concerns regarding moving to Stratford Northwestern for the 2019-2020 school year.
We will be addressing these questions beginning in September 2018. We will also be soliciting input from all our stakeholders (parents, students, teachers, trustees) regarding this transition at that time.
Our committee will continue to provide updates on the Avon-Maitland District School Board website as the project proceeds through its phases.
We are excited by the programming possibilities that this project presents for our students and look forward to working with our community on enhancing educational opportunities within both schools to help develop 21st century learners in the years to come.
