Progress Reports / Parent Teacher Interviews

posted Oct 17, 2018, 1:10 PM by David Nash

High School (9-12) Semester 1 Progress Reports and Parent -Teacher Interviews
Progress reports are currently being emailed to parents/guardians for whom we have a valid email address. The process began today (Wednesday, October 17) and will continue tomorrow (Thursday, October 18).  Students will be issued paper copies of their progress reports if we do not have a valid parent/guardian email address.  These paper copies will be sent home with students either on Thursday or Friday.

Please note that NOT ALL students will receive a progress report -- in some cases, teachers have been in contact with parents through alternative means of communication.  Additionally, students who are progressing well in a course may not receive a report.

At this time, we are also making available the form for requesting a parent-teacher interview which will be held on October 25.  The form will be on the second page of the progress report, can be accessed HERE, or a paper copy can be pick up from the main office.

If you have any questions about progress reports, please contact your child's teacher directly.

Just a reminder that Southend will be hosting a Cannabis Information Session on Tuesday October 16th at 7pm at Jim Durrell in Ellwood Hall.

This will be an opportunity to hear from the City Ottawa Police and the Canadian Automobile Association about what is legal, how will this be enforced and what are some of the changes that will affect players and parents.

We will provide info next week about speakers.  Southend Juvenile, Midget and Bantam players are welcome to attend as well as any and all interested Southend parents.  

We will also open this to our other District Associations as well as other Sports Associations.  Seating is limited to about 200 people so this is first come, first seated.

Give your consent to stay connected with your child’s school

We are looking forward to welcoming your child at one of our OCSB schools.

Don’t miss any news

Our Board and schools use the SchoolMessenger communication platform to send automated phone calls and emails to parents. We use this system for attendance and emergency messages, as well as general messages including school updates and newsletters.

We want to ensure that you stay connected with your child’s school and the OCSB throughout the coming school year. If you wish to receive all types of email messages sent by your child’s school, you must provide your consent. Otherwise, we will only send you emergency and attendance email messages.

You can provide consent by creating an account with SchoolMessenger and choosing your contact preferences for each type of message. There is also a free SchoolMessenger App available for both iOS and Android based phones which enables you to receive notifications of school messages as well as set your contact preferences for each kind of message.

Create your SchoolMessenger account

  1. Go to for instructions on how to create your account.

  2. Create your account using the email address you provided when you registered your child for school. Once your registration information has been entered into our student information system, your child(ren)’s name(s) will appear in the contact section of the account. If you do not see any contacts listed, please check back in a couple of weeks.

  3. Once the account has been created and you can see your child(ren)’s names listed, choose your contact preferences for each type of message.

Have questions?

If you are having difficulty creating your parent account, please email the OCSB at

More information about School Messenger can be found in the School Messenger Parent FAQ (
