School Update: Distribution of Report Cards


Collecting data on student achievement is meant to identify student and school strengths and needs. By our Catholic nature, we aspire to help students become who God intended them to be. In the collection of data, we come to know more about our learners and how best to support them in achieving – academically, socially and spiritually. We strive to ensure our assessment and evaluation is fair, equitable and inclusive as it is essential to the achievement and well-being of all students and the school community.

“For which of you, intending to build a tower, does not first sit down and estimate the cost,

to see whether he has enough to complete it?” Luke 14.28

Dear Parents and Guardians,

We are writing to provide you with information about your child’s final report card.

This year, in light of the school closures due to COVID-19, report cards will be delivered electronically. The report cards will be delivered directly to parents and guardians by email on June 24, 2020.

Accessing Your Child’s Report Card

As an added measure of security to protect your child’s privacy, you will need your child’s Ontario Education Number (OEN) in order to access the report card. You will find your child’s OEN number on a previous report card.

The Ministry has waived the expectation for both a teacher and parental signature for this reporting period. The School Principal’s electronic signature will appear on all student report cards.

About Your Child’s Elementary School Report Card

As a reminder, no student’s mark should be negatively affected by performance during the school closure period due to COVID-19.

As a result of school closure, the Kindergarten Communication of Learning and Report Card for Grades 1-8 will reflect the learning demonstrated from the beginning of Term 2 to March 13. Evidence collected during the school closure period that shows improvement in learning may be taken into consideration when assigning a final grade/mark. In such cases where there is insufficient evidence of learning in a particular subject or strand (including math strands), the code “I” may be used on a student’s report card and the following statement may be included: Due to the school closure period, there is insufficient information to determine a grade/mark.

Ratings for Learning Skills and Work Habits will reflect the period from the beginning of Term 2 to March 13. Teachers may choose to include comments on growth in Learning Skills and Work Habits demonstrated during the school closure period when it is to the student’s benefit.

Questions About Your Child’s Report Card?

As with all reporting periods, parents and guardians may contact their child’s teacher to arrange a time to discuss the report card.

May God bless you and your family with a safe and enjoyable summer!

Mr. B. Melanson
