​One of the most important ways parents/guardians and community members can make a meaningful difference for students is by participating on the school council. Under the Education Act, a school council is a collective association designed to advise the principal and the CBE Board of Trustees on matters related to the school. School councils have legislated advisory. They are different from Parent Societies & Associations, whose main function is to raise funds for the school.​​ You can find more details in the CBE School Council Handbook​.​

FUN LUNCH  

The 2022-2023 OHS Fun Lunch is using the HealthyHunger.com ordering system and is ready for parents to place orders as of September 12, 2022. (healthyhunger.ca)

Please check the OHS website calendar to see when orders are due and the fun food dates. Deadline to order and pay is 5 days before the event date; no product is available on event days. To order, please visit www.healthyhunger.com. Thank you for your continued support of Fun Lunch!  

KISS & DROP 

The Kiss & Drop service is for everyone to use. It operates best when everyone knows the expectations. Please review.

  • Remain in your vehicle at all times. 
  • Move your vehicle with the flow of traffic and we’ll open your door when it is safe.
  • Ensure that your child can exit and enter your vehicle from the passenger side only. If unable, we ask that you not use Kiss & Drop.
  • All passengers in your vehicle must be safely and legally secured. If you do not have enough room for the children you are picking up, re-think your plan before entering the Kiss & Drop zone.
  • No U-turns allowed at either of our intersections. Our patrols keep track of vehicles who are making unsafe decisions.
  • Do not turn left after dropping off or picking up your child(ren). Continue down the hill turning right at the community centre, taking you back around.
  • If the Kiss & Drop zone is full, no double parking. At drop off, remain in the line and be patient. At pick-up, turn right at the community centre and loop around to return you to the back of the line. 

The people running the Kiss & Drop service are volunteers. Please model appropriate behaviour in front of your children and the community when speaking to our volunteers. Abuse of our volunteers will not be tolerated. School safety is top priority for our volunteers.
