Provincial Assessments Cancelled

Attn: Grade 10 Students and Families,

The following email was sent home to grade 10 students and families:

Good afternoon,

Today I visited grade 10 students who were expecting to write either or both the provincial literacy and numeracy assessments next week informing students that these assessments were likely to be cancelled. This email serves as confirmation that students will not write either provincial assessment next week. The Ministry of Education has decided to cancel the January session for these assessments for the entire province, citing complications due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. 

We are awaiting further clarification from the Ministry, but it still expected that grade 10 students will complete both assessments at a later date to be eligible to graduate. Further information will be communicated home as it becomes available.
