October Newsletter


Happy October Everyone!

Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year here at the DLC. We are so excited to have you all with us this year. I want to personally welcome back all our returning students, as well as saying a big hello to all our new students coming to the DLC. This is going to be such a great year.

Learning online doesn’t mean ‘going it’ alone. Our teachers, academic advisors, and other support staff are here to help you. Whether that’s connecting with you through a Teams meeting, a phone call, or booking a face-to-face meeting at one of our “DLC On Location” events or even here at the DLC, we want to help you be successful. I want to encourage you to reach out to your teacher or your academic advisor if you have any questions about your course or schedule here at the DLC.

I wish you all the best for this upcoming school year. If you have any questions or just want to say hi, please reach out to me via email or give me a call here at the DLC.

Academic Advisors

Academic Advisors (AA’s) at the DLC are here to help you with your high school course load and preparing for your plans after high school. Our AA’s help to guide you during course selection, make adjustments to your current course schedule, help you understand post-secondary admission requirements – and so much more!

Our Academic Advisors are Courtney Ouellette and Trish Schilling. When you log into your student dashboard on DLCgo.ca, click on “How to Contact your DLC Academic Advisor” under courses, and you’ll find your AA’s contact information.

Courtney & Trish look forward to hearing from you!
