For Children in the Youth Development Program

Parents of children enrolled in the Youth Development Program (YDP), operated by Owl, are asked to provide information to confirm their plans for upcoming Professional Activity (PD) Days, March or Winter Break Camp, and Easter Monday.

PD and other closure days for the 2020-2021 school year can be found in the right column of the web page, as well as the Opt-In/out request forms.


November 23, 2020 PA Day

Families with a child scheduled to attend are required to opt-out in writing if not attending the PD day on November 23, 2020. You must opt-out by Friday, November 9 at 11:59pm. Failure to do so, will result in your account being charged for this date. You may also wish to use the below form to opt-in/out for all future PD days, Winter Break and March Break Camp.

Opt-Out: Available October 26, 2020

If your child does not regularly attend on a Friday, you may wish to opt-in for a full-day of care with Owl.

Opt-In: Available October 26, 2020

NEW: Due to COVID-19, only those registered in Owl's before and after school program or a sibling of a before and after school child are eligible to attend on a PA Day. At this time, we are unable to accept care requests from those at another school or non-Owl families.

  • Note – this means that a sibling of an infant is not eligible to attend on a PD Day. The reason being is that the infant is in a completely different part of the building and the sibling may or may not go to our school.
  • Also, YDP families will not be sent to a WCDSB school in Nov and Apr when the school board does not run to accommodate those with an extended day child.
