Good Evening, this is a message from Moncton High School. The end of the semester is fast approaching which means that it is time for our January exams and assessments. I have attached the exam schedule in two formats, one as a PDF file and the other as a picture.
- Students received their exemption forms today from their homeroom teacher. Those are for students that have missed 5 or less days in a subject (excused or unexcused). Please return them to your subject teacher on our next school day. Unfortunately with the ELPA and unit tests - the grade 9 students do not have an opportunity for exemptions until June.
- All grade 9 students and those that were not successful in grades 11 and 12 must complete the ELPA on Monday morning. If you are new to the province or do not know if you are writing the exam you must see an English teacher to confirm.
- Any instructions for the exam day will be posted in the lobby the morning of the exams including the room that you are writing in and any other pertinent information for the day. As a general rule - you write in your subject classroom with the exception of the ELPA and Math 9.
- You may leave after your exams, and are not required to attend school if you do not have an exam.
- All assignments are due to your teachers by the end of the week.
The yearbook committee will be selling this year’s yearbook during lunch this week. The cost to order a yearbook is $60. You may also order your copy through School Cash (district website) and online at Jostens.com
The deadline is fast approaching and there will be no extra yearbooks available for purchase in June. Don't miss out!

Please note, this statement has been jointly prepared by both the administration of Riverview and Moncton High School.
We want everyone to know that racism is not accepted nor tolerated in either of our schools or at extracurricular events. We work proactively to promote kindness, understanding, appreciation, and inclusion of all cultures, races, and backgrounds through in-class and out of class learning opportunities such as assemblies, curricular-based learning, and extracurricular activities. A recent example of this was when both schools participated in Orange Shirt Day in support of reconciliation and that every child matters. When our students make mistakes and exhibit problem behaviors and misunderstandings in this regard, we work with those students to help them learn and change their way of thinking and behaving. We also apply appropriate consequences to reinforce these required changes in behavior.
On Friday, September 29th, at a football game between our two schools, students from both schools made mistakes and exhibited inappropriate behaviors. During the half time, staff members from both schools separated the students so they were sitting apart in the bleachers. The second half of the game carried on without incident. After the game was finished, allegations of racist comments were made. Both schools investigated the event and it was determined that the comments came from youth sitting in the Riverview High School crowd. Most of these youths are not students at any school.
Those students that exhibited problem behaviors have been dealt with by their respective schools. Anyone identified acting in a racist way from Riverview High School received a suspension. Other youth that were not students that engaged in racist comments have been banned from attending future school-related events.
These situations also create opportunities for learning for our school communities. As a result of this situation, staff from both schools have already and will be spending some time helping our students be kind, understanding, appreciative and inclusive no matter who you are. We encourage parents and guardians to continue this conversation with your child at home.
On behalf of the administrators from MHS and RHS, we thank you for your support in helping all of our students learn from situations like this to move forward in a positive and proactive manner.
In September 2017, Mental Health and Addiction Services for children and youth along with mental health services offered in schools have been restricted to make them more accessible to this clientele.
This service delivery model called Integrated Service Delivery (ISD) will serve children and with significant emotional, social and/or mental health needs. This innovative approach that makes it possible for departments and agencies (Education and Early Childhood Development, Health, Social Development, Justice and Public Safety, school districts, and the Regional Health Networks) to work together in order to provide the right service at the right intensity at the right time.
At the heart of the ISD model are the child and youth teams (C & Y teams), which are composed of school and mental health psychologists, school and mental health social workers, addiction workers, learning support teachers, and a clinical coordinator. These teams will provide services around a group of schools.
To help you understand this information, we thought it would be useful to include the groupings of schools associated with the six Anglophone C & Y teams in the region. The phone number to access the reception office of each team is also indicated in that document.
For more information on the ISD model, we encourage you to visit our web site at : http://www2.gnb.ca/content/gnb/en/departments/education/isd.html
