Timetable Pick-up Information for Grade 10 - 12 Students

Current Grade 10 to 12 students are welcome to report to the cafeteria on August 28th between 8:30 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. to get a head start on the 2015-2016 school year. This is an opportunity for students to pay fees, order a yearbook and choose a locker. If eligible, students will also be able to pick up and register their Presto bus pass.

Lisgar CI adheres to the OCDSB School Fees Procedure (PR.648.SCO) with regard to collecting voluntary school fees which are used to provide a wide range of support. Vox Lycei, the student yearbook, may be ordered for $40. Student fees are $25, which covers the cost of mailings, I.D. card (required for Library), student council activities and special events. Or to buy both Student Fee and Yearbook it will cost $55.00! A limited number of Agendas will be available for sale in the Main Office for $5.00. If paying by cheque, we kindly request that you put it all on one cheque (include agenda), made out to Lisgar Collegiate Institute. If paying with cash, please try and have the correct amount.

Course fees may be charged for course enhancement outside the Ontario curriculum (e.g. AP exams and/or for learning materials enhancements). Students will continue to be charged for field trips. If any fees pose significant financial hardship, the Principal or Vice-Principal should be contacted. If you have more than two children attending Lisgar CI, please ask about our one family fee.

Please follow the following steps to register your locker and pick-up your timetable and student planner:

  • Place a combination lock on your locker anywhere in the North Building. Lockers cannot be shared. Students may select one full locker or two half lockers.
  • Record your locker number and combination and bring this information to the registration desk in the cafeteria.

In order to ensure fair and equal opportunities for all students, lockers can only be reserved when Student Fees are paid and the locker is secured with a lock. At the end of each day of registration, locks may be removed from unregistered lockers.
