MONDAY, AUGUST 10:  We hope you and your family are doing well and staying healthy.

We wanted to ensure that you received the electronic communication that was sent out to families on August 10th. This communication shares the Return to School Plan information as well as a form to complete stating your preference for In Person or Remote Learning. The deadline to complete this form is August 14th. It is important that you complete this form as soon as possible so that more specific planning can occur. If you did not receive this email, it can be found on the OCDSB website. The form is available on the website as well.

We continue to receive direction from the OCDSB and the Ministry of Education to ensure that we are ready to welcome our students back to school as safely and smoothly as possible. With the information shared by the OCDSB today, along with the information we will be collecting from families this week, we will be actively putting plans in place for our Greyhound Community. As those develop, we will continue to share them with you, ensuring your children and your families are well apprised of how things will unfold as the year begins.

For our new Grade 6 and 7 students, we are still planning an adjusted version of our WEB Orientation. How that will roll out will be dependent upon direction from the District, but we will do everything we can to ease the transition for your children! Again, more specifics will be forthcoming as they evolve.

Parents have also been inquiring about school supplies. You can find the list of recommended supplies here. Please note that all items should be labelled and must fit inside the students desk. Items will not be shared between students. Cubbies and lockers will not be available for students to store their belongings. Additionally, a labelled water bottle will be required as water fountains will not be used for drinking purposes. As much as possible, learning will take place outside, so please prepare to dress your child for the weather.

Our primary goal continues to be creating learning spaces that are as safe as possible for our students and staff. This continues to be a whole new world for all of us, but as always, we will navigate it together!

Stay well, and enjoy the waning days of summer!!

Trish and Gaynor

BORROWED CHROMEBOOKS AND HOTSPOTS:  For families who received Chromebooks and/or hotspots, we are asking you to hold on to those devices and we will arrange for their return at the start of the 2020-2021 school year. If you had a hotspot, the hotspot was deactivated on June 26th. If your child is leaving the OCDSB, then we ask that you email Gaynor.Kondric@ocdsb.ca directly so that we can connect with you about a drop-off date and ensure the device is properly logged as returned. 

STUDENT BELONGINGS:  For students who were not able to pick up their belongings in June, we packed them up, labelled the bags and stored them safely for the summer. Students will be able to get them in September.  For Grade 8 students who were not able to come in, we have also packed up any locker belongings and stored those away until we get direction on pick up protocol We have put your composite photo, your Leaving Certificate and your T-Shirt with them.

REPORT CARDS: To register to receive your child’s report card, please follow this link.

HOT LUNCH REFUNDS:  With the donations of the refunds, we are able to donate a total of $2800.00 to the food banks in Richmond and Stittsville. The money will be split between the 2 food banks and cheques will be sent to them directly. Thank you so much for your donations. It is truly appreciated! 

VIRTUAL LIBRARY: Mrs. Judd has spent the past several weeks creating a website for families to access a wide variety of online resources. Please take a moment to check it out: Virtual Library

OSTA: OSTA is working with the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board (OCDSB), Ottawa Catholic School Board (OCSB) and Ottawa Public Health (OPH) to develop a safe plan for students for the 2020/21 school year. We thank you for your patience as we navigate these uncertain times and will continue to update parents throughout the summer and beginning of the school year.
