Western Area Review
As you may know, the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board is going to be undertaking a multi-year review of student learning and accommodation planning. The purpose of the review is to ensure that we continue to offer the best learning environments for students while ensuring the effective use of education funding and school space. To do that, the District has to rethink how school space is used, particularly in areas where there is empty space or overcrowding. Most geographic areas across the District will be involved in a student learning and accommodation review over the next five years. A detailed report on this topic is available on the District website.

Student Accident Insurance
Creating a caring and safe environment for our students is our top priority. Unfortunately, despite all reasonable precautions being taken, accidents can still happen. Some injuries may result in medical, dental or other expenses that are not covered by provincial health care or employer group plans. As a parent/guardian, you become responsible for these expenses. Student accident insurance is available for purchase, on a voluntary basis, through Reliable Life Insurance Company. Parents may apply online at www.insuremykids.com, forms may be downloaded at www.binks.ca or hard copies may be picked up from the school office. The OCDSB encourages all parents/guardians to consider purchasing this insurance. If your child is involved in school related sports activities or is participating in any field trips out of the province you may wish to seriously consider the coverage options.
Relay for Life!
On Friday, May 27 2016, Merivale staff and students completed our inaugural Relay for Life fundraiser for the Canadian Cancer Society. With incredible participation from student organizers, parent volunteers, staff, and community support we rasied over $30,000! Congratulation to all who came out to this incredible event!
