Update for School Start

posted Aug 21, 2020, 12:25 PM by Paula Joly   [ updated Sep 4, 2020, 8:01 AM by St. Paul High School ]

We are looking forward to welcoming our community back to St Paul. As we prepare for the new school year we are working diligently to plan and prepare a safe and smooth return for students and staff.  

Understanding that this year will look different, we wanted to ensure everyone received the most up-to-date information from the Ottawa Catholic School Board that was emailed earlier this week. The email included an update to our Return to School Plan, information about the staggered entry for all 7-12 students and an opportunity to submit a survey to update your choice for in-person or distance learning by midnight on Friday, August 21st. 

We also wanted to encourage you to check out the robust Return to School FAQ page on the School Board website.

Prior to the first day, we will communicate revised schedules and review daily routines. If you are wondering what items to prepare for your child this year, click here to access a list of recommended items.

As new information is available we will continue to communicate with you. If you did not receive this by email, please take a moment to sign-up for a SchoolMessenger account.

posted Jun 19, 2020, 8:13 AM by Leslie Morrow

Step 1: Register

Before you can use the Parent Portal, you must register so that we can verify your information. This ensures that only authorized parents/guardians are able to view their child’s report card. You only need to register once, even if you have more than one child in the OCSB. Your secure account will give you access to all of your children’s report card data.

Step 2: Activate your account

After you register, you will receive a confirmation email with a link. Click the link in the email to set up your password and activate your Parent Portal account.

Step 3: Access the Parent Portal

There are two ways to access the Parent Portal: online through a web browser, or on a mobile device through an iOS and Android app. Both provide the same student information, but the app will allow you to receive notifications.
