Class of 2020 Graduation Ceremonies Rescheduled to the Fall

May 19, 2020

Dear graduating students and families of Laura Secord SS:

Due to the extended closure of schools, and with Niagara Public Health requirements to limit gatherings and the spread of Covid-19, we have had to make some changes to our end of year celebrations.

DSBN has made the difficult decision to reschedule graduation ceremonies to the fall of 2020 for all secondary schools.  We recognize that this will be disappointing news for graduating students and their families, but the safety of students and staff remains our highest priority. 

Many of you have indicated how important it is for you to be able to honour this milestone with your families, classmates and staff members in attendance. By moving our graduation ceremony to the fall, there is a better opportunity for everyone to be able to celebrate together.

With the end of the semester quickly approaching, it is important that you continue your focus on your learning through June. As you know there is another submission of your marks to OCAS and OUAC at the end of the semester.

You are a very special group of graduates and the staff look forward to celebrating your success and your time in high school with you in the fall. We will keep you updated on further details over the coming weeks. 


Helena Tritchew
Principal, Laura Secord SS
