For students who don’t have a signed consent, parents can download, print and send the form in on day 1 with their child:
*most consents were signed in cycle 1 for all the vaccines needed for the whole year (all 3 cycles), but there were some that missed for whatever reason I’m sure.
Should parents have any questions or concerns, please direct them to our Ottawa Public Health Information Line at 613-580-6744.
YOUR input needed: Parent focus group on student well-being. What does “well-being” mean to you? How can students' well-being be supported at school?
The Ontario Ministry of Education is looking to develop a K-12 student well-being framework to help support the mental health and wellness of all students.
CSPA is hosting this parent session with Dr. Elizabeth Paquette (OCSB Chief Psychologist & Mental Health Lead), to collect your ideas and opinions to share with the Ministry. We know that students who have strong relationships and a positive sense of self, are in a better position to reach their full potential. Come learn more about current initiatives in OCSB schools and share your ideas to promote well-being.
