Welcome to
Holy Trinity High 

 Dear Parents and Guardians:

As the result of concerns for the safety of students, we have taken the step of suspending a student transportation contractor for your school. We have not taken this action lightly as we know it has a significant impact on families and our busing system. However, the District could no longer permit service to continue without the confidence it is being provided in a safe manner for students.

The District does have a contingency plan in place to provide student transportation to those schools and routes impacted, though due to logistics this plan cannot be implemented until Monday, January 23, 2017. Schools will remain open for instruction. We ask impacted families to attempt to make their own transportation arrangements to school for the next two days.

We thoroughly apologize for the inconvenience we know this is going to cause families, however, we feel we have been left with no choice but to take these steps to maintain student safety. 

Should you have questions about the specific operations for your school, please contact the school administration.

As such, they will not be expanding the schedule beyond the 4 evenings traditionally used plus the one extra evening for the English 3201 listening. This essentially means that students may write only 1 science exam during this exam session and one world study or the Francais during this exam session.
