School Attendance Boundary Update

On Tuesday, June 14, the Ottawa Catholic School Board approved the attendance boundary for the new Barrhaven South Elementary School. This alters the attendance boundaries for St. Benedict, St. Cecilia and St. Elizabeth Ann Seton elementary schools. The changes will go into effect at the opening date of the new school, currently scheduled for September 2023.

JK to Grade 6 students attending our school who reside within the new school's approved boundary, will all be relocated to the new school.

For more details on the changes you can read the full report: New Barrhaven Elementary School – Attendance Boundary Consultation Final Recommendations.

Parent Portal - Instructions for completing forms

The beginning of September is a busy time for collecting and passing on information. In past years, we have sent home paper copies of the Student Information Verification Sheet and the Technology Agreement (which allows students to access technology at school). The OCSB has moved these documents to an online format. Please access, fill out and submit these forms on the Parent Portal before September 26 (do not use the student portal).

For the Student Information Verification Form, please fill out ONLY the fields that have changes to be made, if there are no changes to be made, do not submit the form.

Here are some helpful links to help you fill out these forms:

OCSB Parent Portal Information link: Parent’s whose first language is not English can select a language in the top right corner. There are also support tips at the bottom of this webpage.
