The reconfirmation period for current members (families registered for at least one weekly space in Before and/or After School Care as of January 1st, 2019) will begin on March 1st and go until March 15th. Here are the documents you will need to complete the re-confirmation process:
Re-Confirmation Package 2019-20
PAD Authorization 2019-20
PAD Agreement Instructions 2019-20
Parent Agreement 2019-20
Registration Information Sheet 2019-20
Younger siblings of current members may be registered during the re-confirmation period. New families may request to be added to the waitlist at any time. For any child who has not previously attended our programs, we require that a registration package be completed.

Just a head’s up that activity calendars and registration information for our summer programs (KOSC Summer Camp and Youth Adventure Program) will be posted on the website early next week. We’d hoped to have them ready this week but are still working out a few details with field trips and activities.
Registration dates remain unchanged — May 3rd for families with children currently enrolled in Before and/or After School Care, and May 10th for all others (including drop-in families and those whose children do not attend Keating Elementary).
Here is the newsletter for April:
A lot of parents have been asking about registration for our summer programs — check out the newsletter for all the details!
It’s so nice to see the sunshine again — perhaps Spring is finally on its way. Here is the March newsletter, as well as the After School Care activity calendar.
March ASC Calendar
Also, as a reminder, today is both the last day of Early Bird Registration for Spring Break. After today, the rate for Spring Break Camp goes from $35/day to $40/day. This is also the last day to change or cancel any days of care that you have already requested without being charged. All cancellations and changes must be made in writing (email is fine).
Today is also the first day of the current member re-confirmation period. When submitting your re-confirmation forms, please ensure that your Pre-Authorized Debit form is filled out, as well, including the amount of monthly fees that will be withdrawn.
Have a wonderful day!
Many families have been asking about forms for current member re-confirmation for 2019-20. Although we had intended to have them available as of February 15th, we have been busy catching up on a number of things as a result of the snow closures last week, so we have not yet gotten the updated forms finished.
The forms will be available on the website and in hard copy from Pirate Portable tomorrow (February 20th). We apologize for any inconvenience as a result of this delay. Current member re-confirmation will begin on March 1st and will run until March 15th.
Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone!
Just a reminder that tomorrow is a Pro-D Day. We will be going to Panorama Rec Centre for skating, leaving KOSC at 1:15pm and returning around 3:30pm.
If your child is attending camp tomorrow, please ensure that they bring a helmet with them — a bike helmet is fine. If they do not bring a helmet, they will NOT be able to skate. Our licensing regulations make it so we are unable to rent nor to allow your child to rent a helmet when they are in our care. We will have a leader sitting out with colouring sheets, card games, and other quiet activities for any children that are not skating or need a break.
Your child may also bring their own ice skates, but if they do not bring a pair then we will rent skates for them. Please also send your child with gloves, as well as warm clothing (which they will need regardless due to this crazy winter weather!).
As per usual, please make sure you pack your child with a healthy morning snack and lunch — we will provide an afternoon snack shortly after we return from the field trip. Please refrain from packing food items that contain peanuts or tree nuts, as we will have children in all three portables who have severe allergies and want to make sure that everyone is safe.
At the moment it is snowing here at Keating, and we are supposed to get more snow tonight. So far, we have taken our cues from the school as to whether we will be open or closed due to weather conditions this week, but as it is a Pro-D Day, KOSC will need to make a decision based on whether the fresh snowfall poses a safety hazard due to dangerous road conditions or loss of power; if our staff are unable to safely come to work, or if we do not have power in the portables, we will not be able to operate our program. If this situation arises, we will inform parents as soon as possible here on the website. Here’s hoping that this will not be an issue!
Have a good one!
Happy Valentines Day! Keating Elementary and KOSC are both open today.
