Vaping information for parents

posted Jan 21, 2019, 6:34 AM by Jean-Paul Cloutier

Parenting in Ottawa’s Facebook page is a great resource for parents. Every day a new topic is presented and a nurse is available to answer questions and private messages (during business hours).  Jan.23 will be a day devoted to vaping. We realize this is an issue of concern for many parents and schools alike. This will be a great opportunity for parents and educators to engage with our guest with questions or to just simply join the conversation and gain new insights.


 

Wondering what all the fuss is about VAPING and teens?  Join@ottawahealth on Jan. 23 on their #ParentingInOttawa Facebook page to learn more and ask questions to the Public Health Nurse. https://www.facebook.com/parentinginottawa

Mass cancelled and school update

posted Sep 22, 2018, 1:00 PM by St. Pius X High School

We regret to inform you that due to the effect of yesterday’s storm, our 60th Anniversary Mass has been cancelled for tomorrow, Sunday.

Our school has been recently inspected and the report is favourable. The school has not suffered any structural damages. A pine tree located on Fisher Ave. got uprooted without causing any damage to the building or blocking our sidewalks. However, the school has no power as of yet. The OCSB will continue to assess our school and will communicate any updates as soon as possible. The updates will be posted on the website @OttCatholicSB. As well, I will continue to update you as the information becomes available. Our thoughts and prayers are with all those families impacted by the storm.


In prayer,

Alex Belloni

Principal
