What a strange year end for all of us. We thank you for your patience, flexibility and kindness as we have all had to adapt these last 3 months. It wasn't what we were use to or what we had hoped for but we were all in it together! We encourage you to engage in a Hilson end of school year tradition and throw yourself an ice cream dance party!
We know there are many questions about what the return to school in September will look like. The Ministry of Education has published a letter to parents here that gives some insight. The situation is still fluid and dynamic therefore please be sure to check your email and the OCDSB website throughout the summer to stay up to date with how back to school in Ottawa English public schools will be rolled out.
Goodbye and Thank-you to Mme Laflamme and Ms. Carolyn
We would like to say goodbye and thank-you to Mme Laflamme for being the French teacher extraordinaire to Kinder A and Kinder B throughout the 2019/2020 school year. We wish her all the best in her move to Nova Scotia!
We would also like to say goodbye and thank-you to Ms. Carolyn who has been the English teacher to Kinder C. We wish her a wonderful summer with her family and look forward to catching up with her in the fall as she continues to be part of our Hilson community.
