SSRCE - Safe Schools Notice

It is essential, and mandated by the Province of NS,  that all schools be able to provide a safe and secure learning environment for students and staff. Experience has shown that schools face a variety of threats including violence, child abduction, bullying, drugs, vandalism and theft.


Early Primary and Pre-Primary Registration - January 13-17, 2020

Students turning five years of age on or before Dec. 31, 2020, are eligible to begin primary in September 2020. If your child will be starting school in September, please contact the appropriate catchment area elementary school in your community for early registration.

Parents/guardians will be required to present:

OHS Bulletin-Cold Environments

Cold environments can not only be hazardous to your health, but also life-threatening. It is critical that the body be able to preserve a core body temperature steady at 37oC. A cold environment challenges us in 3 ways: by air temperature, air movement (wind speed), and humidity (wetness). In order to be safe, these challenges need to be carefully considered and counterbalanced with proper insulation (clothing), body heat conducted by physical activity, and amount of exposure.

Phone Calls For Bussing/Pick-up Changes

PLEASE NOTE:  If your child’s plans for end of day bussing or pick-up need to be changed, for any reason, calls must be made to the school office before 2:00 pm. This request is to ensure the office staff plenty of time to relay the message to your child. ( Please keep in mind your child’s last classes of the day may be with a specialist teacher and, therefore, out of phone contact for the office.)

Keep Contact Information Updated

Parents, please keep your most current email address, phone numbers and mailing address on file at the school at all times.  In case of an emergency, we need to have your current contact information to guarantee the most  appropriate action.  Without the most current number and address, notification of important  information may be delayed.  To update your information, contact the school office at 902-354-7660, email or write the information in you child's agenda for the classroom teacher.
