Grade 10 Literacy Test-Letter to Parents 10 Literacy Test-Letter to Parents<p>​Dear Parent/Guardian,<br></p><p>Re: Literacy Test <br></p><p>Beginning October 18<sup>th</sup>, 2021, students in Grades 10 and 11, and non-graduating Grade 12 students will have the opportunity to attempt the Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test (OSSLT) at Bear Creek Secondary School. If successful, this will count towards satisfying the literacy requirement for the Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD).<br></p><p><strong>Please note that the literacy graduation requirement for all students graduating during the 2021–2022 school year has been waived. </strong></p><p>Should a student who is learning from home within the hybrid system wish to participate in the OSSLT, the student must come into the school and write the test with their class cohort. In this manner, we are ensuring that cohorts are maintained, and that all necessary public health directives and school board health and safety measures continue to be implemented.</p><p>Even with safety measures in place, we recognize that not all families will feel comfortable with their student entering the building and attempting the OSSLT. Please know that we understand that this concern exists, and staff will work with students to ensure that they can complete the literacy requirement for the OSSD in the future. </p><p>Unlike past years, there will not be a dedicated day to the writing of the OSSLT. Instead, all students will be assigned a day to write the OSSLT and they will have two opportunities to write.  The first writing session will be between October 18<sup>th</sup> and November 5<sup>th</sup> and again from March 21<sup>st</sup>, 2022 and April 8<sup>th</sup>, 2022. Please note that the normal daily school day schedule will be unaffected and will continue as normal. </p><p>OSSLT Writing Day Schedule<br></p><p>Period 1 Booklet 1 8:05-9:20</p><p>5 minute break</p><p>Period 1 Booklet 2 9:25-10:45<br></p><p>We believe that students, working with their teachers, parents/guardians and administrators, can be successful on the OSSLT. Additional information and materials about the OSSLT are posted on the EQAO web site at <a href=""></a>. <br></p><p>Sincerely,<br></p><p>Tyson Maxwell </p><p>Vice Principal <br></p><p><br></p><p><strong>Week A Grade 10 Classes </strong></p><table cellspacing="0" width="100%" class="ms-rteTable-default"><tbody><tr><td class="ms-rteTable-default" style="width:20%;"><strong>Monday Oct. 18th</strong></td><td class="ms-rteTable-default" style="width:20%;"><strong>Tues Oct. 19th</strong></td><td class="ms-rteTable-default" style="width:20%;"><strong>Wed.
