Snow Days and Exams

posted Jan 12, 2018, 8:26 AM by Kelly Nixon

High School exams will be written on January 25, 26, 29, and 30.  In the event of a snow day during the high school exam period, exam schedules at all schools for all students will be affected (not just for school bus riders).  

In the event of a “snow day” where yellow school bus transportation is cancelled during the high school exam period, the missed exam will be written the following day.  

All other exams will be bumped by one day and the last exam, scheduled for Tuesday, January 30 will be written on Thursday, February 1.  During a snow day, the school will be open, but exams will not be written.

Wednesday, January 31 remains a PD day whether or not there is a snow day during exam week.

For example, if January 26 is a snow day and all school bus transportation for our board is cancelled, then:
  • All exams originally scheduled for January 26 will be written on January 29.
  • All exams originally scheduled for January 29 will be written on January 30.
  • All exams originally scheduled for January 30 will be written on February 1.
  • January 31 remains a PD Day.

Lockdown Drill

posted Nov 30, 2017, 10:49 AM by Kelly Nixon

This afternoon,Thursday November 30 the the school held a lockdown drill.  Students and staff responded quickly today.  Members of Ottawa Police were on-site to take part in the drill.  As is the case with fire drills, we practice lockdown and secure school drills so that the school community is prepared should an emergency situation occur.  

A secure school situation is initiated when there is no immediate threat to students, but it is determined that an emergency measure is necessary. During a secure school situation students continue their routines within a locked classroom. If the threat to student safety is active and more imminent the protective action of a school lockdown is required. This enables administrators to best protect occupants by isolating the maximum number of students, staff and visitors from danger.

During a lockdown students remain in their current classroom. School staff follow preset instructions to lock doors, turn out lights and move students out of the line of sight of doors and windows. Students in hallways move to the nearest classroom. All activities cease and the school remains in lockdown mode until Ottawa Police determines it is safe to release classes from the lockdown. The school cannot release children to parents during a lockdown.

The lockdown is a proven police and emergency response to protect students and staff from harm by creating safe places quickly. Should you have any questions relating to today’s drill please do not hesitate to contact the school.
