Message from the Assistant Head of School
March has certainly been a month of change at Fieldstone and in the wider world. We are proud that our commitment to student success is unwavering. During our period of campus closure, we will continue to provide our students with a world-class education.
In our first week of online learning support, students and teachers have been extremely positive in their reflections on their digital classroom experience. Our community’s resilience, positivity, and adaptability has been nothing short of inspiring. We are excited about navigating this new territory with our community.
Wishing you a restful and safe weekend,
Stephanie Long – Assistant Head of School

Online Learning Expectations
As we have moved to an online platform until we can return to the classroom, please remember to treat the online classroom as if it is the regular classroom. This means:
- Showing up on time and participating in the opening activity.
- Participating throughout the full class.
- Submitting your assignments in a timely fashion.
The May/June Cambridge Examinations have been cancelled.
Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test
A reminder that this test has been canceled due to COVID-19 school closures. We are confident that our students benefited from the literacy support they received this year and look forward to continuing our year-round commitment to improving student literacy.
The literacy requirement for June 2020 has also been waived by the Ontario Ministry of Education due to this unprecedented situation.
Keeping our Community Active
Our Athletic Director has compiled a useful list of activities and tips HERE.
Student Handbook and Student Code of Conduct
While learning has moved online, the Code of Conduct is still in effect and it is important that we maintain our positive community standards in all types of Fieldstone learning environments.
All members of the community are expected to understand and follow these expectations.
