August Registration: Locker and Timetable Pick Up

We have an exciting year planned at Salisbury Composite High School and we look forward to welcoming new and returning students for the 2017-18 school year. Salisbury is closed for the summer but will re-open on August 21 at 8:30 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.

Each grade has an August date to pick up timetables, receive locker numbers and pose for photo I.D. Because timetables are reviewed by counsellors and administrators prior to that date, there should be minimal timetable changes. Doors open at 8:30 a.m. and close at 11:30 a.m. on these days.

Grade 12: Wednesday, August 23

Grade 11: Thursday, August 24

Grade 10: Friday, August 25

Lockers will be allocated according to grade level. Students may reserve a locker for one friend if they have written permission from the friend or friend's parent.

Students who have not yet registered, and are living within our attendance boundaries, are asked to call the school beginning August 21 to make appointments for registration. New registrations will be conducted during the afternoons of August 23 - 25 by appointment only. Don't forget to bring with you: proof of residency and the student’s birth certificate.

Visit our website throughout the summer for updates from EIPS and Salisbury. The website contains important links to the EIPS division calendar which outlines holidays and school closure dates for the 2017-18 school year, our school calendar which highlights special school dates and activities, and the bell schedule which will assist you in planning appointments for your children.

First Day of School

Classes resume Wednesday, August 30. For the 2017/2018 school year we are excited to continue the First Day of School format. Grade 10 students ONLY will attend school in the morning starting with a Welcome Breakfast (pancakes, sausage and fruit) in the cafeteria at 8:15 a.m.

We will then have special presentations and activities that will help students to become familiar with their new school building. The Grade 11 and 12 students will join the Grade 10's and staff at 11:34 a.m. for the Welcome BBQ (hot dogs and water will be provided - fries will be available for purchase).

Students will then attend a shortened version of their Semester 1 classes in the afternoon.

We look forward to a great start to a new school year!
