Dear Parents and Guardians,

I am writing to provide clarification on the proposed labour disruptions scheduled for next week in Ottawa. I understand this a confusing and stressful time in education in our province. 

All Ottawa Catholic School Board Schools are OPEN on Monday, January 20, 2020. Buses are running for OCSB students and all regular school day activities will continue as planned.

However, I do encourage you to make alternative child care arrangements (if required) for Tuesday, January 21, 2020. Our teachers are members of the Ontario English Catholic Teachers' Association (OECTA) and they are scheduled to participate in a one-day provincial strike. 

This means ALL OCSB Elementary, Intermediate and Secondary schools will be CLOSED and all student transportation will be cancelled for OCSB students. Classes will resume the next day January 22, 2020. There is NO CHANGE to the high school exam schedule. High School exams will take place between January 23 through January 29, 2020.

The one day closure also includes all regular school day activities, Co-op, OYAP, dual credit, home instruction, extra-curricular activities, field trips, and clubs.  

Before and after school programs will be cancelled for the day. However, all Ottawa Catholic Child Care Corporation Toddler and Preschool programs and all EarlyOn Centres will be open and will operate according to their regular hours. 

Parents who wish to apply for government reimbursement for child care costs related to labour unrest may direct their questions to the Support for Parents Helpline at 888-444-3770 or  https://www.iaccess.gov.on.ca/ParentAppWeb/parentapp/index.xhtml

We remain hopeful that an agreement can be reached at the central bargaining table when they reconvene. We will continue to provide timely labour updates through our website, social media channels and via School Messenger to keep you up-to-date regarding labour negotiations.

ECO-Friendly Christmas Tips! 

It’s all too easy to get wrapped up in the Christmas spirit, so we thought we’d share some tips to help keep us grounded and in touch with the environment and God's gift of creation over the holiday break! 

  • Reuse the comic section of the newspaper in place of wrapping paper. For a more sophisticated look and feel, consider reusing a beautiful fabric. If you do use wrapping paper, consider something that doesn’t have foil or glitter so it can be recycled.

  • Reusable shopping bags aren’t just for groceries! Bring them along when you’re out shopping for gifts.

  • Donate toys that you or your child has outgrown to charity

  • Choose decorations that will last a lifetime. Consider materials like recycled fabric and wood or glass – which are all great alternatives to plastic. 

  • Consider buying locally made gifts for family and friends

  • If you’re having company for dinner, consider how much of the leftovers you’ll actually eat. Maybe you can make a nice turkey soup, or you can always send some leftovers home with your guests. They’ll love it!

  • If you’re still using the older style lights on your tree and home, upgrade to LED!

Thank you! (A Message from our CSC) 

Thank you to everyone that came out tonight to our Ugly Sweater Christmas Dance in support of our school Angel Tree Campaign. Together, with your generosity, we were able to raise a record amount that will help many families within our community over Christmas.

Thank you to all the families that stopped in and bought food, drinks and tickets. You are all amazing and we are lucky to have you as part of our school community.

Thank you to all the amazing volunteers (and volunteering grandparents) at our school that helped design and implement the evenings events. Without volunteers, none of our events would happen.

Thank you, thank you, thank you and Merry Christmas to all!
