Retrieval of Student Items from School

posted Jun 4, 2020, 12:04 PM by Tim Slack   [ updated Jun 4, 2020, 12:31 PM ]

Thursday, June 4th, 2020

Next week we can open the school up to parents to come to retrieve student items. Staff have been busy preparing student items to make this an easy task. Most of the critical information is covered in the St. Jerome Parent Access to School Letter.

I do want to highlight a couple of items:

  1. You have to complete the survey in the letter before you access the school. These are questions from Ottawa Public Health.
  2. All kindergarten items are in the gym organized by class and have been bagged and labelled.
  3. Gr. 1-5 students have their items in their classrooms.
  4. Gr. 6 students will only have access once. This will be towards the end of the month so they can pick up their Leaving Ceremony items as well. Ottawa Public Health has only approved one visit to the school.
  5. Please bring your own bag to retrieve student items.

Catholic Education Week

Catholic Education Week begins on May 3, and we want to hear from you, our teachers, support staff, students and their families. This year's Catholic Education Week theme is "Igniting Hope."

Each year at this time, OCSB schools generate many inspiring stories of Christian service, and we want to continue to promote those stories even though they are not happening in our schools. We know you are igniting hope in our St. Jerome community, through cards, letters, songs, videos and door stoop drop-offs. 

"Igniting Hope" - is what you do every time you reach out to a student, colleague, family or community partner. Please send your stories, videos, tweets, pictures, and more to If you can include the hashtag #JERPride if tweeting that would be awesome!

The Ottawa Catholic School Board will promote these stories through all of their online mediums, the media, education and political partners and the Ontario Catholic School Trustees Association (OCSTA).
