Letter to Parents -- June 5, 2020

Dear Immaculata Families, June 5, 2020

We will continue to pray for everyone who has been affected by the wrongful death of George Floyd and we hope that everyone remains safe in the peaceful protest in downtown Ottawa today.  We must always stand together against racism and hatred of any kind.

Our Immaculata Grads received a special treat today as staff members delivered cupcakes to all of our graduates.  Today was supposed to be our Prom and we want our Grads to know that they are constantly in our thoughts during the school closure.  Keep working hard during these challenging times.

The grade 7&8 students continue to work on their weekly work plans that are sent every Monday morning.  High School students continue to work towards their credits to improve their marks which will better prepare them for the following year.

Student registrations and summer school registrations are open and can be accessed online through the  school website on the left hand side. Please pass this information to any family who is seeking to register at the school.  Please email Immaculata.High@ocsb.ca if you need to contact the school.  

A protocol has been established to have limited access to students to clean out their lockers, return items and retrieve their yearbook (if purchased).  The plan will ensure social distancing measures are in place as the safety of the students and staff are our main concern.  The protocol must be followed and any individual who does not meet the OPH/school guidelines will not be permitted to enter the school.  An administrator will ask every individual questions on this protocol and will deny access if responses are not adequate for safety reasons.  The first phase of school entry will consist of having a schedule (June 8-12) based on Last Name -- Alphabetical Order.  This will be a long process to ensure that safety guidelines are met.  

Students who access the building will be able to drop off their textbooks, sports uniforms, used school uniforms and musical instruments.  Electronic devices such as chromebooks are to be collected if the student is not remaining at the school for the following year or if they are no longer in need of the device for their studies.  Students are asked to remember their locker combination and the location of their locker.

I hope that all our Immaculata families are doing well.
