When will I get a locker?

If you do not have a homeroom class, go to the Main Office and they will assign you a locker. Students are required to provide their own combination lock for their locker.

When will I get my timetable?

Student timetables will be available through the parent and student portals sometime in August. We are still waiting on the Ministry of Education's announcement on what the 2020-2021 school year will look like.

Are there student fees?

PLEASE NOTE: We are still waiting on the Ministry of Education's announcement on what the 2020-2021 school year will look like. At this time, we do not know if there will be student fees for the 2020-2021 school year.

Students are encouraged to pay their student fees online in advance via School Cash Online. For families that do not pay online, student fees can be paid during the first week of school in the Main Office (cash or cheque only).

Will I get lost?

Yep! You might - we all did on our first day, but that's okay because Clarke Road is such a friendly place, you can ask anybody for directions or come to the office or ask your teacher for help :)

Who will be my teacher?

Each class will have a different teacher and your teacher's name will be shown on your timetable.

I moved! Do I need to tell the school?

Yes. Please call the Main Office at 519-452-2640 or email us at clarkeroad@tvdsb.ca to inform us of any changes to your address, phone numbers, or emergency contact information.

How do I log into the school computers?

Your username is the first 4 letters of your last name + the first 4 letters of your first name + the last 3 digits of your student number (for example: smitjohn123)

Your password is all 9 digits of your student number. Once you log in for the first time, you can change your password to something you will remember.

Your teacher will help you log into the school computers at the beginning of the year.

If you have forgotten your password, tell one of your teachers and they will have our Computer Facilitator reset your password.
