Grade 7-8 Parent Interviews Scheduled for Thursday, February 23, 2022, Will Be Online Only
If you have an in-person parent interview scheduled for this evening, it will revert to an online format. Your child's teacher will reach out to you today about how to connect online.
We decided to switch to an online format based on the current weather alerts for Ottawa, which include reduced visibility from local blowing snow and the possibility of snow mixed with freezing drizzle, along with ice pellets forecast for later this afternoon and evening.
Thank you for your understanding and continued support of Catholic education.
OPH Vaccination Catchup Clinics on Monday, February 13
While grade 9 to 12 students will be prioritized for these clinics, OPH can accept certain requests from other eligible students (grades 7/8) within the school who may face challenges with accessing some of these vaccines or missed the regular fall grade 7/8 clinic. Not all students will need these vaccines as many have received their school vaccines in grade 7 or 8, and as well have kept up with routine vaccines (ie Tdap) through their health care provider. These catchup clinics are meant to offer those facing barriers in access, to receive any of the below vaccines in the school setting.
High School Catch-Up Clinic
Hepatitis B (HB)
Human Papillomavirus (HPV-9)
Tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis (Tdap) *Available for those 14 years and older if needed.
Grades 7 & 8 Catch-Up Clinic
Consent Form – needs to be printed and signed by the student and legal guardian in order to receive these vaccines. If you have already signed a consent (less than two years ago), the consent is still valid, and you do not need to provide a new one. Please remind your child to come to the clinic to let us know, as we do not have a list of who has consents already on file.
If you have questions regarding immunizations, please visit parentinginottawa.ca/immunization or call Ottawa Public Health at 613-580-6744. The phone line is open from 9 am to 4 pm, from Monday to Friday.

Ottawa Public Health will be on site Monday, November 28 , and Tuesday, November 29, to provide vaccinations for our Grade 7 & 8 students.
All students in Grade 7 (students born in 2010), have received a package from their homeroom teacher with the consent form for the hepatitis B, human papillomavirus (HPV) and meningococcal disease vaccines.
For students in Grade 8, if you and your child signed the consent form last school year, the consent is STILL VALID (consent is valid for 24 months following the date it was given). If consent is on file and your child is due for a vaccine mentioned above, nurses from Ottawa Public Health will, with child consent, proceed with the vaccination. If you are unsure if consent is on file, call Ottawa Public Health at 613-580-6744.
These vaccines are publicly funded, so no payment is needed. Please speak with your child about the vaccines. You and your child need to sign the consent form for each vaccine you want your child to get.
Even if you do not want your child vaccinated, fill out the consent form indicating “No” forall vaccines you do not wish your child to receive.
On vaccination day, please eat a good breakfast, bring an extra juice or snack to school, wear short sleeves or a loose shirt so that the upper arm can be exposed easily, without undressing, bring a mask to wear in the clinic, and bring the consent form to school.
