Grade 7-8 Parent Interviews Scheduled for Thursday, February 23, 2022, Will Be Online Only
If you have an in-person parent interview scheduled for this evening, it will revert to an online format. Your child's teacher will reach out to you today about how to connect online.
We decided to switch to an online format based on the current weather alerts for Ottawa, which include reduced visibility from local blowing snow and the possibility of snow mixed with freezing drizzle, along with ice pellets forecast for later this afternoon and evening.
Thank you for your understanding and continued support of Catholic education.

Letters of Intervention, Parent-Teacher Interview & Early Dismissal Oct. 20
Please note: This information was emailed out to parents on Thursday October 13th. The information was emailed out parents again on Tuesday, October 18th.
Letters of Early Intervention
Letters of Early Intervention were sent out by email to parents (students cc-d) last Thursday afternoon (October 13). These emails were sent from the school account. An emailed Letter of Early Intervention was sent home if a teacher has a concern for a student's progress in class - so not all parents received emailed letters. It is possible these emails may have gone to your spam folder, so you may wish to check there as well.
Students may also view any Letters of Intervention they may have received by logging into their my.studentinfo accounts.
