INFO: Snow Days and the Exam Schedule

posted Jan 23, 2020, 5:52 AM by Stephen Myers

High School exams will be written on January 23rd, 24th, 27th, and 28th.  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 canceled 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 28th will be written on Wednesday, January 29th.  During a snow day, the school will be open, but exams will not be written.
Friday, January 31st is a PD day with semester two beginning on Monday, February 3rd.

For example, if January 23rd is a snow day and all school bus transportation for our board is canceled, then:
All exams originally scheduled for January 23rd will be written on January 24th.
All exams originally scheduled for January 24th will be written on January 27th.
All exams originally scheduled for January 27th will be written on January 28th.

Let's Skate Program

posted Jan 23, 2020, 5:50 AM by Stephen Myers

St. Paul is delighted to announce the 'St. Paul Let's Skate Program powered by the OSEG Foundation.' Andrea Guzzo, parent, and Kendra Hollingsworth, Grade 7/8 Curriculum Leader for Phys. Ed have worked with the Ottawa Sports and Entertainment Group Foundation (OSEG Foundation) to give every student at the school the opportunity to skate.

Six charitable organizations were solicited to get funding to support this endeavour. 

Happily, the OSEG Foundation is funding this initiative (

Through their donation, we were able to purchase skates, three storage units and a skate sharpening machine (yet to be purchased), extra skate laces, etc. 79% of our Grades 7 & 8 do not have skates or access to them. We now have enough skates to service two Phys. Ed classes at a time.

Much thanks is extended to the City of Ottawa who despite having already made the decision to close the rink at Morrison Park, reopened it to support the school.

Lee Valley Tools is maintaining the rink and has been a great support. We had 20 pairs of skates donated by a charity. Signage for the program has been donated by Gunn Media. 30 new helmets, to complement the school's existing helmets, were purchased with a discounted price courtesy of CCM and Play it Again Sports Kanata.
