Navigating the School

Alyssa B

 
 

From looking at the map, you might think Cairine Wilson is a maze of hallways. Most grade nines get confused on their first day. Don’t worry! When you get to school, find any Link Crew Leader and they will take you to class! We all wear white t-shirts for the first week of school and are here for your navigational needs!


Remember: There are TWO different upstairs and they do not connect in the middle! There were renovations done in the last couple of decades and they didn’t connect the upstairs (we are aware of how inconvenient it is).

 
 

School Schedule

Once you get your scheduled classes, your first class will be your homeroom and Period 1 class. Your morning classes will switch places and your afternoon classes will do the same. On Day 1, you have your homeroom first and on Day 2, your homeroom is your second class. It can sound complicated but with practice you'll get the hang of it!
