Hello Corpus Christi families,


Please find a mid-February Newsletter below.  I figured after receiving so much information at the beginning of February, that I’d wait a little longer to send the monthly newsletter out.

Hello Grade Six Families,


Can you believe we’re starting to talk about high school?  We are thrilled to be a feeder school to Immaculata High School.  We are very proud of our learning partnership.  Principal, Sean Power, has shared a link to the Immaculata Parent Information Website.  


Immaculata Parent Information Website


There will be a Town Hall Meeting on Feb. 18th at 6 p.m. if there are any additional questions for parents of students entering Grade Seven.  Parents must register on the website to attend the meeting.  


There will be no formal presentation this year, due to Covid-19 protocols.  Most of the information is presented on the above website.  


If you have any additional questions, please feel free to reach out to me or contact Immaculata directly at 613-237-2001 or Immaculata.High@ocsb.ca.

Return to In-Person Learning - CCH Parent Memo January 31st

posted Jan 31, 2021, 11:38 AM by Sheri Stashick




Tomorrow marks the beginning of #BlackHistoryMonth, a time to celebrate and honour the contributions of Black Canadians, past and present! It's also a time to listen & learn.  We will be sharing stories with the children of influential Black people throughout this month.  


“Our kids must learn other’s perspectives and understand their privilege to help dismantle it. As we say in education, learning is a journey, and it is our responsibility to be engaged in it continuously. Our kids need us to be.” (Jodi Ashton, Educational Consultant OCSB) Please take a moment to read Jodi’s Blog post entitled:  Identifying Our Unconscious Racism  I found it to be thought-provoking, inspiring and real. 


Check in with the Ottawa Public Library for books and virtual presentations that you can access as a family.


IMPORTANT REMINDERS AS WE RETURN TO IN-SCHOOL LEARNING TOMORROW


As mentioned in a detailed Parent Letter sent on Friday, January 29th, we have made a change to the arrival/dismissal procedures. These will start tomorrow, Monday, February 1st. 



Arrival times:  8:55 a.m. - 9:10 a.m. and Dismissal Time:  3:40 p.m. will remain the same.


We will now be using the large gate on Fourth Avenue for all WALKING students, the small gate on Third Avenue for all BUS students, and the small entrance on Lyon St. for SPECIAL TRANSPORTATION students.  Please see map: 



This week will be WEEK ONE, meaning that Primary (Gr. 1-3)  Students will remain on the yard upon arrival until 9:10 a.m. (Junior Students (Gr. 4-6) will go directly to class).  Kinders will always go to the Kinder Play area outdoors.  Students remaining outside will line their backpacks neatly up along the wall (without piling on top of others).  


IMPORTANT COVID-19 REMINDERS:

Self-Screening Tool

Please remember to use the Ottawa Public Health Self-Screening Tool to check your child for symptoms before sending your child to school. If you are concerned your child may exhibit symptoms and do not know where to get your child or family member tested, visit OttawaPublicHealth.ca/COVIDTesting for detailed information. All staff will also need to complete a self-assessment before going to work on Monday. 


Here is a QR code that takes you directly to the Ottawa Public Health Self-Screening Tool, if you wish to use your smartphone.  


COVID-19 Screening Tool for School or Child Care










Mandatory masks (Grade 1 to 12)

Your child will now need to wear a mask if they are in Grades 1 to 3. Students in Grades 1 to 12 must wear non-medical or cloth masks indoors in school, including in hallways and during classes, on school transportation and outdoors during recess where students cannot maintain physical distancing.  We will be encouraging all students to wear masks outside at all recesses if they are not following the 2 meter distance rule.  As masks will be getting moist from playing outside in the cold weather, please send extra clean masks whenever possible.*We are strongly encouraging students in Kindergarten to wear masks, as well.

TRANSPORTATION

The Ottawa Student Transportation Authority is working on providing full school transportation service for the new return date of February 1st. Please consult the Ottawa School Transportation Authority website for information related to transportation to and from school. We anticipate there may be some delays due to the short turnaround time.


All students from grades 1 to 12 will be required to wear a face mask (cloth or medical), and students in Kindergarten are recommended to wear a mask, on all vehicles, including school buses, vans and wheelchair buses.  Please note that a neck warmer or scarf is not considered an appropriate face mask on board vehicles.

 

If your child has a medical condition that does not allow them to wear a mask, or special needs that make mask-wearing difficult, please advise OSTA, the Operator or the school.  We appreciate your continued efforts to keep students and our drivers safe.


CHROMEBOOKS


If you borrowed a Chromebook during this Remote Learning time, please send it back with your child on Monday.  We were pleased to be able to distribute these devices to assist with synchronous and asynchronous learning.  They will be needed in the classrooms on Monday.  Thank you for your attention to this request.


NATIONAL SWEATER DAY ON THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 4TH

Thursday, February 4th is National Sweater Spirit day. This day is celebrated to remind us to conserve energy. You can turn down the heat and wear a cozy sweater! 

See you TOMORROW!  We look forward to seeing everyone in the building and hearing the classrooms and hallways once again filled with noise and laughter!  It has been far too quiet around here.


Be Well,

CCH - Parent Memo - January 29th

posted Jan 31, 2021, 11:36 AM by Sheri Stashick


Welcome Back Corpus Christi! 


Thank you, thank you, thank you for your continued PATIENCE, SUPPORT and FLEXIBILITY.  It is truly appreciated by our entire Corpus Christi community.


We have made a change to the arrival/dismissal procedures. These will start on Monday, February 1st. 

Arrival times:  8:55 a.m. - 9:10 a.m. and Dismissal Time:  3:40 p.m. will remain the same.


We will now be using the large gate on Fourth Avenue for all WALKING students, the small gate on Third Avenue for all BUS students, and the small entrance on Lyon St. for SPECIAL TRANSPORTATION students.  Please see map below: 



Instead of ALL students entering the school immediately upon arrival, we will be having only half of the students enter (alternating weeks). Primary students (Gr. 1-3) will remain on the yard during Week One. Junior students (Gr. 4-6) will go directly to class.  (Kinders will always go to the Kinder Play area outdoors). Don’t worry about remembering which week is which.  That will be OUR responsibility. This will allow extra outdoor time (similar to an extra recess) every second week.


Please know that all Covid-19 Safety Protocols will still be in effect.  Students will remain in their Cohorts on the yard and in the school.  


As parents will not be allowed to stay, or come onto school property, it will be imperative that you review these plans (ahead of time) with your child.  (I shared this information with the children over the Announcements this morning.)


* There will be staff members to guide students directly to their cohorted area on the yard OR to their classrooms.

For your information, the Cohorts remain the same as have been in place since September.

 

KINDER: COHORT A:  (KP1/KP2)

PRIMARY: COHORT B:  (Gr.1/Gr. 2)

COHORT C:  (Gr. 3A/3B)

JUNIOR: COHORT D:  (Gr. 4/5 IMM / Gr. 4/5 EXT / ECL)

COHORT E:  (Gr. 5/6 IMM / Gr. 5/6 EXT)


A FEW IMPORTANT COVID-19 REMINDERS:

Self-Screening Tool

Please remember to use the Ottawa Public Health Self-Screening Tool to check your child for symptoms before sending your child to school. If you are concerned your child may exhibit symptoms and do not know where to get your child or family member tested, visit OttawaPublicHealth.ca/COVIDTesting for detailed information. All staff will also need to complete a self-assessment before going to work on Monday. 

What’s New - Mandatory masks (Grade 1 to 12)

Your child will now need to wear a mask if they are in Grades 1 to 3. Students in Grades 1 to 12 must wear non-medical or cloth masks indoors in school, including in hallways and during classes, on school transportation and outdoors during recess where students cannot maintain physical distancing. Exceptions will be made for students who are unable to wear masks for medical reasons. Physical distancing requirements will continue to be enforced at our schools.

*We are strongly encouraging students in Kindergarten to wear masks, as well.

Transportation

The Ottawa Student Transportation Authority is working on providing full school transportation service for the new return date of February 1st. Please consult the Ottawa School Transportation Authority website for information related to transportation to and from school. We anticipate there may be some delays due to the short turnaround time.

Extended Day Programs resume Monday 

We’re back! If your child was registered in one of our Extended Day Programs, they can return on Monday, February 1, at all locations that were open before the lockdown. If you’re interested in sending your child to the Extended Day Program at an OCSB school, see our Child Care Programs page on the OCSB website for locations and registration details.


CHROMEBOOKS


If you borrowed a Chromebook during this Remote Learning time, please send it back with your child on Monday.  We were pleased to be able to distribute these devices to assist with synchronous and asynchronous learning.  They will be needed in the classrooms on Monday.  Thank you for your attention to this request.


We need your continued patience and support as we follow our new school policies and practices to ensure the safety and success for all of our students and staff.  As we learn to live with COVID-19, we must continue to Be COVID-Wise and recognize that all of us have a role to play when it comes to reducing the spread of the virus. We are proud of our efforts to date and strive to continue and improve as we navigate through together.


As always, please reach out if you have any questions or concerns.


We celebrated “Colours of the Rainbow Day” today!  We had great participation.  We also took part in National Puzzle Day.  Here are a couple online puzzle links that I shared to surprise the students and staff:  PRIMARY PUZZLE LINK  / JUNIOR PUZZLE LINK  Enjoy!

Prayer for Strength in Challenging Times

We pray for your love and compassion to abound

as we walk through this challenging season.

We ask for wisdom for those who bear the load

of making decisions with widespread consequences.

We pray for those who are suffering with sickness

and all who are caring for them.

We ask for protection for the elderly and vulnerable

to not succumb to the risks of the virus.

We pray that fear may take no hold in our hearts and minds. 

We thank you for the mercy that you provide, Lord,

And we ask that you help us approach each day in faith and peace,

trusting in the truth of your goodness towards us.

Extension of Remote Learning - Parent Memo January 10th

posted Jan 10, 2021, 3:02 PM by Sheri Stashick   [ updated Jan 10, 2021, 3:03 PM ]


                                    


Dear Corpus Christi Families,

 

Well, it wasn’t the announcement we were hoping for! We were all praying that we would be back together this week - in person. That being said, we appreciate and understand the fact that everyone’s health MUST be a priority.

 

I would like to take a moment to give a huge shout out to all of the parents out there (including many of our staff who have children at home as well)! You are doing such an AMAZING job supporting your children. We were so pleased to be able to distribute devices to so many of our students who needed them to fully participate in online learning. It is simply incredible to me, to watch and listen to our children, and see how they are navigating this situation. You must all be so very proud of your children.

 

In addition, from my end, I see the countless hours and dedication being put forth by all of our staff . The collaboration and sharing has been constant this year and has ramped up in a big way this past week. We have all needed each other’s support at times. We have been encouraging each other to laugh, even when we feel like crying. WE all need to celebrate the wonderful things that have happened this past week!

 

As was the practice this past week, I will continue to hold morning announcements, prayer, and O Canada (and of course birthdays) each day at 9:20 am. 

 

SPECIAL REQUEST:

We would like to request that you help your child to find a location in your home where they can participate in learning - free from household distractions when at all possible. In an effort to replicate the classroom setting as much as possible, we suggest that older students, especially those in the junior grades, work independently. The classroom teachers will do their best to help them from this end, and if they are really stuck with something, then the teacher might suggest they seek out help from a parent or sibling. We understand that this might be more challenging for the younger students. If it is necessary for you to be nearby, please keep in mind that any noise or conversations happening in the background at your house can be heard by the class. We thank you, in advance, for helping us to set up the best learning environment for all students.

 

Thank you for your efforts to support your child during these upcoming weeks. We appreciate how challenging it is for everyone. I know and see how very hard staff are working to create engaging and effective lessons. Our learning curve has been steep and we spend evenings watching webinars, etc. to help teach ourselves some new programs and best practices. Know that we are here and will do our very best to ensure things run smoothly. The students are allstars and continue to amaze all of us with their determination and participation during online learning.

 

KINDERGARTEN REGISTRATION WEEK

 

Registration week for Junior Kindergarten (must be 4 years old by December 31, 2021) and any NEW Senior Kindergarten students (must be 5 years old by December 31, 2021) will begin on Monday, January 11th.  OCSB KINDERGARTEN WEBSITE

Why register in January? We are encouraging parents to register now. It helps our schools prepare for their child's arrival, and it helps promote Kindergarten readiness. Families who register will receive an excellent new OCSB welcome package in the mail (while supplies last), which helps their child get excited about starting school. The surprise package is filled with tips and activities to help prepare them for Kindergarten. REGISTER NOW

Virtual 3D tours of our kindergarten classrooms - from the comfort of your couch. Every year, we run a city-wide advertising campaign to promote Kindergarten registration. With COVID restrictions making it impossible for parents to come into schools, we decided to bring the schools to parents! Every OCSB elementary website now has a 3D virtual tour of one of their Kindergarten classrooms! (TAKE A 3D TOUR) Please call the school (613-232-9743) if you have any questions.


AttendanceParents of elementary school students should ensure they continue to notify the school if their child is absent.  A quick email to the school account is best. (corpus.christi@ocsb.ca)

Student Support Videos

The OCSB LT department has also developed student videos. The goal of these videos is to help students (new to remote learning) better understand what remote learning is all about.

#ocsbHowTo use Google Meet for Students

#ocsbHowTo Troubleshoot Hapara Workspace for Students


Device Distribution:  We anticipate that most students have access to a device that they can use during remote learning; however, if you require a device, please contact the school office via the Corpus Christi email address. (corpus.christi@ocsb.ca)
