Boundary changes coming to schools in the Findlay Creek Community (2024)
The Ottawa Catholic School Board has approved the new Findlay Creek Elementary School attendance boundary and associated boundary revisions to St. Bernard, St. Thomas More and St. Mary elementary schools. Consequently, the existing boundaries of St. Francis Xavier, St. Mark and St. Patrick's high schools are also affected. These changes will go into effect at the opening date of the new school in September 2024. Visit the Board website for more details.
A Note from the Director: Tom D'Amico
Dear OCSB Community,
Ottawa Public Health (OPH) continues to report high levels of flu, COVID-19 and RSV circulating in our community. As such, I am sharing with you some advice from OPH.
Wear a mask in crowded indoor spaces, including schools
Stay home when sick
Wash your hands, frequently
Cough into elbows
Get all vaccines you are eligible for, including COVID-19 and flu
Although Ottawa Public Health does not mandate mask-wearing, they recommend wearing masks indoors and in crowded outdoor spaces. I recognize that wearing masks is a divisive topic, so please be respectful of everyone's personal choice. Our schools and worksites will continue to supply masks to all staff and students who want one and provide hand sanitizer and daily cleaning practices.
Thank you for your continued support of Catholic education. I will continue to provide Ottawa Public Health updates throughout the year as needed.
