IMPORTANT DAILY ROUTINES
Morning Drop-Off and After School Pick-Up
If you are walking or driving your child to school, please drop and pick-up grade 1-4 students at the back of the school in the school yard. Kinder students should be dropped off and picked by the gate of the Kinder yard at the front of the school.
In the morning, the yard is used by children enrolled in the the Extended Day Program (EDP) before 8:15am and so even though you may see children and staff in the yards, please do not leave your child unsupervised before 8:15am.
The yards are supervised from 8:15am- 8:30am and from 3:00-3:10pm. Any students not picked up by 3:10pm, will be brought to the office.
Kinder Yard Use
The KINDER YARD is for exclusive use by students (in the Extended Day Program and in Kindergarten) between the hours of 7:00 am - 6pm. Kinder students will be met and dismissed from the front kinder gate. This ensures safety for all our children. Thank you for understanding.
Please check out the OSTA webpage to find out whether your child qualifies for busing, and if so, the location of the stop and the time for pick-up and drop-off. There are a number of changes to routes this year, so please take the time to double check this important information. The walk zone maps indicates location of stop signs, traffic lights and the location of our crossing guard (McCarthy and Cahill). The parent portal login is at the top of the homepage. You will be asked for your child's last name, date of birth and grade.
The Extended Day Program (EDP)
The Extended Day Program (EDP) is offered before and after school at Bayview (students in JK-grade 4) and is run by our Bayview Registered Early Childhood Educators. The Off-Site Supervisor is Amanda Yeldon and she can be reached via the Extended Day Program Office at 613-239-2378. In the morning the extended day program runs from 7:00 to 8:1 5 am and after school from 3:00-6:00pm. At present the children are divided into two groups: Kinders (base rooms are Rooms 106 and 107) and Grades 1-4 (base room in the morning is the Large Gymnasium and after school is Room 118). Parents bringing their children to the EDP, should enter by the exterior door B (by Room 108).
Bayview Public School is a JK to grade 4 EFI (Early French Immersion) Centre located in a well-established neighbourhood off of McCarthy and Plante Drive, just beside Owl Park. The school is wheelchair accessible with a ramp at the main entrance. Students, staff, and parents work collaboratively to create a positive atmosphere that fosters respect, co-operation, and success. We want our students to achieve academic excellence and responsible citizenship. Student are encouaged to take every opportunity to speak French at school . In promoting a positive and safe learning environment for all, our students, Bayview parents and staff truly work in partnership. In 2005, Bayview students adopted Nanuk the Polar Bear through the World Wildlife Federation.
Bayview School team members will foster respect (for self and others), responsibility (both personal and social) and resourcefulness, cultivating not only proficiency in French and English but also a lifetime love of learning, thus developing each child’s full potential as a confident, contributing member of society.
