Warrior Connect Homeroom will be scheduled each Friday between period 1 and 2. This will be a vehicle for connection, grade - specific information and support. One Friday a month will be dedicated to Link activities which provide mentorship of the grade 10s by Link Leaders. The focus of Link is to be “safe, informed and connected.”
Students will be issued locker locations and locker combinations by the school through their homeroom.
