Registration is open for the city of Ottawa day camps that are in place for Wednesday’s Ottawa-Carleton District School Board closures.
All OCDSB elementary and high schools will be closed for the day since talks have stalled between the union representing Ontario’s public teachers and support staff and the provincial government. Field trips, extracurriculars and co-op programming are cancelled for the day. The Parent Involvement Committee meeting that had been set for Wednesday is also cancelled.
For anyone looking for childcare, there are city camps available for children ages 4-12. Several English language camps along with a few French camps are available. They are in locations across town including Greely, Kanata and Orleans. Additional childcare is also being offered through before and after the scheduled camps. The camps are 40 dollars for the day and registration is at ottawa.ca/recreation.
The city says it will have camps ready all winter in case of more strikes.
The Ottawa Public Library is in the middle of its Teen Exam Cram which could be a place for high school students who need a place to study tomorrow. That programs runs until the end of the month. Students who are spotted studying will get a free study snack and a highlighter.
