News This Week


Opening Message

I hope that this message continues to find you and your family well.  As you have no doubt seen, educators at OWES are setting the direction for Phase 2 learning at home.  We are working towards ensuring that all students can access learning in ways that fit individual needs.  Please continue to openly communicate with your child’s educators about how things are going and let us know if there is any support that you might need for your family.  Many of the key community support structures continue to be in place. We can help families in a number of ways.

How can I receive the latest updates from the OCDSB about COVID-19 and Learning at Home?

The OCDSB will continue to work with Provincial and Municipal authorities to plan for next steps and provide timely information to all of us.  Important updates from the OCDSB will be emailed to parents and students. The OCDSB will also add the latest updates to its social media accounts and COVID-19 webpage.
