IMPORTANT NEWS - We are asking for your cooperation in sending students to school on the bus if they are bus students in light of the poor visibility and space in our parking lot. These conditions are being caused by large piles of snow and we expect them to persist for several weeks. We would like to prioritize the space in the drop off lane for our families of walkers and out of area students as they may not have choices in transportation. Please drive with extreme caution and be on the lookout for pedestrians

Parent Teacher Interviews are Wednesday, April 22, 2015 (1-3PM - also no school for students that morning due to staff PD) and Thursday, April 23, 2015 (6-8PM)

Please remember to use our drop-off zone between 7:35AM and 7:55AM if your child misses the bus and you need to drive him or her to school. Students will be considered late if they arrive after 7:55AM and thus family members should bring them to the main office to report in and obtain late slips.

New students: Registration Documentation Required: Proof of Address (copy of a power bill, deed or rental agreement), birth certificate (primary only), health card and any other important medical or legal information

Our School

Welcome to O'Connell Drive Elementary School in Porter's Lake, Nova Scotia. Our school serves students and families from the communities of Porter's Lake and Lake Echo. We opened in September of 1997 to 440 students as the first P3 school in our province. We were among the first to experience a technologically rich learning environment. Our classrooms are equipped with LCD projectors, computers and our students have access to the latest software to enhance their learning experiences. Today, we have an enrollment of approximately 350 students. Our staff is dedicated to taking any measures necessary to improve student achievement.
