area.  Students may elect only one of these online courses and must complete the FULL course within the 5 week period of summer school.

Postgraduates are welcome!  They DO NOT require the signature of their high school principal on the form, however, it IS recommended that they check with their post-secondary institutions to ensure that the summer school courses are acceptable for entrance (this has never been an issue, but it is good to be sure).

Registration should be done through your local school guidance offices, or at Fredericton High School between June 17 and 21.  Late fees will apply June 24-26.  If you need to register before this date, please leave a sealed envelope with the application form and cheque or money order at the main office of Fredericton High School.

Graduating (Non-Returning) Students & Office 365 accounts

Please remind your graduating and non-returning students that if they wish to keep content from their Office 365 account (i.e. One-Drive files, email, etc.) that they must take steps to manually migrate their data to another cloud based service, or to an external storage device before they leave school in June. This is a time sensitive item as most students will soon be writing exams and may not have another opportunity to recover their online content. If students require assistance with the migration or backup process please open a help desk request.

Our automated student account management system (FIM - Forefront Identity Manager) will automatically disable any NBSS account if the student is not enrolled in a NB school when they activate PowerSchool databases for 2019-2020. FIM is disabled during the month of July while SNB complete their summer maintenance work on our database servers, but the system will be reactivated sometime in early August and all graduated students will automatically have their NBSS and Office 365 account disabled. If you require additional clarification please contact your Level 2 technician.
