Welcome Back to School

posted Sep 4, 2015, 12:21 PM by Rita Graaskamp

A warm welcome back is wished for all our St. Daniel School families.   We begin the new school year on Tuesday, September 8.  Families are invited to gather in the school yard to meet our teachers between 9 and 9
:15 a.m.  After our morning prayers and anthem, students will head off to class with their new teachers.  If your child will be coming by bus, they will be greeted by our staff at the bus and accompanied to the school yard.

A reminder for students to bring running shoes and be mindful of our nut, peanut, and cinnamon allergies when packing snacks and lunches.  

Our bell times are changing this year.  School starts at 9:15 and ends at 3:45.  

Lots more starting the school year news will be shared in our September newsletter.  

We are looking forward to seeing everyone next week!

St. Daniel School Staff

Transportation information

The Ottawa Student Transportation Authority (OSTA) has a new tool to help you find your child(ren)'s bus stop. Go to their website at and click on the Parent Portal Login at the top of the page.  You'll need to enter your child's information, and the bus stop will be displayed.  If you have any questions or concerns, please call OSTA at 613-228-8800.

The Empty Seat Application tool is not accessible at this time.  OSTA's policy is to allow the month of September for any students new to the school or students to a new caregiver in the area to access the available seats on a bus.  As of October 1, any seats still available may be applied for.  On October 1, the tool can be accessed under the "Forms" tab in the Parent Portal on the OSTA website.  Please call OSTA with any questions or concerns.
