Dear Parents & Guardians,

We have some updates to share with you.

Christmas Fundraising Campaign


With your support, our Sacred Heart community provides families with Christmas baskets filled with food items and holiday gifts each year.  With more families than ever in need, we’re hoping to support 30 local families this year.


As has been the case in the past,  donations will be directed to the Stittsville and Richmond Food Banks.  Families interested and able to participate have several options for contributing.  Donations can be made through School Cash Online.  Gift cards are also being collected in homeroom classes.  Finally, we will have a donation bin available in the atrium in which non-perishable food items can be dropped off.   Our Christmas Fundraising Campaign is scheduled to run from November 25th-December 9th.  

 

Yearbook


The 2020-21 school yearbook is available for purchase through School Cash Online ($35).

October 15th Update

October 15th, 2020


Dear Parents and Guardians, 


We hope that you were able to enjoy the Thanksgiving weekend.  Today, we have a few important updates to share.  


HS Quadmester 1 Parent-Teacher Interviews 


A reminder that high school midterm marks for all students attending in-person will be emailed this Friday. 


High school parent-teacher interviews will take place on Thursday, October 22nd from 2:40-4:40pm.  Booking links will be shared by email at approximately 2 pm this Friday (October 16th).  


When booking you will be able to select either a phone interview or a virtual meeting (Google Meet).  The online booking window will close at 2pm on October 21st.  Confirmation messages are sent by the system after each booking is completed.  Once the booking window closes, parents who have requested a Google meeting will receive a meeting link by email from their child’s teacher prior to the scheduled interview.  


7&8 Parent Teacher Interviews / Progress Reports


Grade 7&8 Progress Reports are scheduled to be released on Monday, November 9th via the Parent Portal.


Grade 7&8 parent-teacher interviews will take place on Thursday, November 19th.  Specific details to follow.  


No Early Dismissal


Typically school is dismissed early on the days that parent-teacher interviews are held.  We do not anticipate that any early dismissals will take place this year.  OSTA (Ottawa Student Transportation Authority) is already dealing with a large number of busing constraints.  Unless otherwise notified, regular dismissal times will be in place on all parent-teacher interview dates.  


Updated OPH Attestation Form / Supporting Information


Ottawa Public Health (OPH) has issued an updated Student Return from Illness Attestation Form (Updated OPH Attestation Form - Student Return from Illness).  Completed forms can be emailed to the school (SacredHeart.High@ocsb.ca) or dropped off by your child in the main office upon returning to school after illness.  


OPH has also provided the following reference tools: Symptomatic Student Decision Guide - Flow Chart and Tested, What Now?.  Both the attestation form and these supporting documents can also be found on the upper right hand corner of our school website.  Please continue to keep us updated regarding school absences. 


Thank you for your continued support.
