OCSBconnect is a service that allows Grade 7 to 12 students to submit anonymous tips on incidents of bullying, student safety, and crime to school staff by phone, text, or mobile app.

This service, which was requested by our students, strives to make our schools safer and more welcoming by providing students with a tool that allows them to report bullying incidents without putting their own safety at risk.



For help or to share anonymous tips on bullying and crime, text or call:  613-604-9766

(standard text messaging rates apply)  Download the free OCSBconnect App from iTunes or the Android store.

Technical Issues Continue

posted Oct 12, 2017, 5:18 PM by St. Pius X High School   [ updated Oct 12, 2017, 7:29 PM ]

Dear Parents and Guardians, 

We apologize for the issues we are having with our parent/teacher interview booking system.  Our IT department has issued new instructions that solve the problem.  

The main issue: once a time was selected, it was not eliminated, resulting in some multiple bookings at one time.  

If you have already booked and are NOT called to reschedule, your booking time is still valid.  Only those few that will be called to re-schedule have been affected.   We will call those affected before booking re-opens on Friday.  

Booking will re-open on Friday night at 8:30PM.

SEAC, CSPA and PIC invite parents and guardians to this evening presentation:


The A,B,C,'s of ADHD: What Parents Need to Know

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a common neurobiological disorder that affects 7% of children and 5% of adults. It can cause a wide variety of impairments in academic, family, and social functioning. It is estimated that 25% of children with ADHD have a learning disability. The goal of this workshop is to provide an overview of ADHD, its causes and symptoms, how it impacts on children's lives and treatment options.

Construction

posted Sep 1, 2017, 6:26 AM by Jean-Paul Cloutier

Dear Parents/Guardians,

As you know, the Dynes/Prince of Wales construction project is causing major traffic issues that directly impact our school. In addition to the Deer Park Road closure at Fisher Avenue until September 22, Dynes Road is one-way, eastbound for the remainder of 2017. For that reason, access to our parking lot will be extremely difficult and we expects serious traffic delays.

For safety reasons, we strongly recommend that you avoid our parking lot while dropping/picking up your sons or daughters. We also encourage students to walk to school or to take the OC Transpo busses as an alternative to getting a ride to/from school. If you must drop or pick up your sons or daughters, we advise you to park or arrange for pick up at a place that is least two blocks from the school. 

A reminder that the side entrance of the school (off Fisher) is off limits. This entrance is reserved for special transportation only. 

We will continue to update you on the progress of the project as the information becomes available. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact the office.

We thank you in advance for your cooperation. 

Alex Belloni
Principal
