News This Week


Opening Message

June is here!  Educators are collecting evidence of learning from term 2 to include in report cards and are continuing to support at home learning.  We are also planning ways to finish the school year in the most positive way possible for our students.  It will be a great month!

Access to Student Belongings

The OCDSB and Ottawa Public Health have provided us with an update about accessing the school to collect student belongings.  We have started to develop a plan for Orleans Wood.  The pick-up dates will be scheduled during the last two weeks of June. Our goal is to make pick up as safe, fast and easy as possible. 

The expectation is that one parent would attend the school for pick up. Pick up will be by appointment only and safety practices and access restrictions will be in place.  Parents and students should start thinking about what items were left at the school, in order to assist in the gathering of items. The focus should be on hard to replace items including shoes, clothing, and other important personal items.  Shared school supplies and school work will likely not be available for pick up.

Specific details for pick up will likely be available in our next weekly update.

Support is Available

Please remember to reply to this message should you or your family need any support during these challenging times.  We can connect families with a number of helpful resources and supports.  This support could include financial support or access to technology in your home.  Here is a link to an information sheet with community resources and supports.
