Possible change of center locations for Smiley Bunch and Grades 1 and 2 to the YLC during the last week of camp (Monday, August 10th to Friday, August 14th).

Due to unforseen circumstances that the City of Montreal RDP/PAT sports and recreation department has been working on to regulate with the English Montreal School Board, there is a good chance that both Smiley Bunch and LDV (grades 1 and 2) will be moved to the YLC during the last week of camp (week 7 is from Monday, August 10th to Friday, August 14th). The main reason seems to be repairs/upkeep that has to be done at the schools during that week. We have requested in early July that this work gets done the week after camp is over but we have not received a definite answer yet. So we need to prepare just in case we have to move. We do appreciate the City of Montreal's RDP/PAT sports and recreation department's assistance in this situation.

I understand that this situation may be more convenient for drop off’s and pick up’s for your children but it creates challenges for us in regards to usage of the school yards and the gymnasiums and having extra spaces for the children to have activities/theme days/special events. LDV in particular was also another safety referral point. However, we will manage exceptionally well if this is the case.

You will be notified by Wednesday, August 5th if we are indeed moving both centers to the YLC. If we do move,

  • Smiley Bunch will be on the 2nd floor in the YLC center itself.
  • Grades 1 and 2 will be on the 3rd floor with Grades 3+4.

Keep in mind that we will not accept any new registration extensions for the last week if we are moving both centers to the YLC. We simply will not have any more space at the YLC to accommodate registration extensions.  Daycare and camp entrance will always be from the YLC parking lot, never the front.

Thank you parents for your understanding and collaboration. We will keep you posted.
