Kinder students should be dropped off an picked by the gate of the Kinder yard at the front of the school. The yards are supervised from 8:45am-9am and from 3:30-3:40pm.

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 registered Early Childhood Educators. The Off-Site Supervisor is Melissa Duplessis 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 8:45 am and after school from 3:30-6:00pm. At present the children are divided into two groups: Kinders (base room is Rm. 1) and Grades 1-4 (base room is Room 2B). Parents bringing their children to the EDP, should enter by the exterior door (near to Room 2B). Staff will be on hand to assist you and point you in the right direction. The front door will be locked until 8:30am
Kinder Yard Use
Due to full-day Kindergarten and Extended Day Program, the KINDER YARD is for exclusive use by students in these programs between the hours of 7:00 am - 6pm. Kinder students will be met and dismissed from the kinder gate. This ensures safety for all our children. Thank you for understanding. Families are welcome to use the play areas at the back of the school before and after school.
We have had calls about empty seats. The forms will be in our office for pick up the last week of September. They are also available on the OSTA website. At this point we do now know how many seats we will receive as bus routes cointinue to be updated and not all our students entitle to busing ride the bus the first weeks of school.
On regular school days, buses will be met at the front of the school and children brought to the kindergarten yard or directed to the grade 1-4 yards. If you are bringing your child to school, please bring them directly to the back of the school (school yard) where they will be supervised until 9 am and then met by their teachers and brought inside.
