SCHEDULING AND DUTY DAY INFORMATION
Each "participating" family is expected to attend bi-weekly Duty days, per child. All participating families, new and returning, are required to attend the two-hour Duty Day Orientation, offered monthly (with some exceptions.) The Orientation highlights the routine, new policies, health and safety requirements and behaviour management expectations. If you or additional Duty Day participants are unable to attend the first Orientation offered, you will be asked to pay for a replacement ($90 per Duty Day missed), and are welcome to attend the next scheduled workshop. Please refer to the Parent Handbook for details relating to Duty Day responsibilities and the scheduling process.
Please indicate who will be attending on your family's bi-weekly Duty Days:
DUTY DAY PARTICIPANT INFORMATION
Parents, caregivers and extended family members are welcome to participate in bi-weekly 'Duty Days'. Being a Duty Day participant means that you are trained as an assistant teacher and counted towards our adult to child ratio- it's a very important job!
Participants are required to:
1. Attend a 2 hour training/Orientation workshop (offered monthly, beginning in September)
2. Submit immunization records
3. Submit a Vulnerable Sector Police Reference Check (Oriole will provide one form per family, and process the VSC. Additional forms are available at a cost of $20)
4. Submit a Standard First Aid and CPR-C certificate (from a WSIB certified service provider.)
Please note: ALL of the above information must be submitted prior to your family's fist Duty Day. The Ministry of Education and Public Health standards prohibit a person from working or volunteering with children (as counted towards 'ratio') unless the above information is on file.
If, at any time, you are unable to make your scheduled duty day, you may:
a) Switch with another parent
b) Hire an on-call assistant ($90 per day, payable to Oriole Nursery School. A list of assistants will be provided at the Orientation.)
For a full description of Duty Day participant responsibilities, refer to the Parent Handbook ("Duty Day Procedures and Daily Routines.")
Duty Day participants are considered staff members and are included in our adult to child ratio. A fine of $200 will be levied onto any participant who does not show up for their Duty Day (and who has not attempted to switch with another parent, hire an assistant or inform the Supervisor of their difficulty to do so before 8:00am.) Should a second 'no show' occur, the family shall be required to switch to a non-participating status, and to pay the necessary fees associated with the switch.
