Dear Immaculata Families, May 22, 2020

We hope that everyone enjoyed a good long weekend with lots of sunshine.  The announcement from the province came out this week that all schools will remain closed for the rest of the year.  Please be aware that teachers are still providing work for students throughout the rest of the school year.  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 and the work that they submit will improve their marks and will have students better prepared for the following year.

Please access this information site that will give you Updates, Learning & Well-Being Resources as well as a FAQ Section.  Please visit http://imh.ocsb.ca/ for information and email Immaculata.High@ocsb.ca if you need to contact the school.  Grade 12 students  are reminded to review the Grade 12 Website for updated information.

Student registrations and summer school registrations can be accessed online through the school website on the left hand side. There is no information at this time on what summer school courses will be available.  Please pass this information to any family who is seeking to register at the school.

The school, school board and Ottawa Public Health are presently working on a plan to have limited access to students to clean out their lockers and to retrieve personal items.  A detailed plan will be sent out early next week.  The plan will ensure social distancing measures are in place as the safety of the students and staff are our main concern.  The protocol that will be outlined must be followed and any individual who does not meet the OPH/school guidelines will not be permitted to enter the school.  The first phase of school entry will consist of having a schedule based on Last Name -- Alphabetical Order.  This will be a very long process to ensure that safety guidelines are met.

Students who access the building will be able to drop off their textbooks, sports uniforms, school uniforms and chromebooks.  Students may continue to borrow items from the school if they still require these items to continue with 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.
