OPL services and programs!

OPL card requirements and instructions for an OPL card.
Jan. 4, - Jan. 8, 2010: ECVI students will get the application form in their English class,
fill out and return the application. Applications must include a
parental signature and proof of Oshawa residency.

Jan. 14 or 15 or 18, 2010: OPL staff ( Tiffany & Co. ) will visit Eastdale on one of
the proposed dates, distribute cards to legit applicants and present a one
hour presentation on OPL services and programs. Presentation in the ECVI
Library, will occur in each of the day's scheduled 4 periods. English classes
will come to the ECVI Library with their English Teacher in their scheduled
class period. ( 3 or 4 classes = 75 - 90 students per period. )
OPL staff will determine the day of presentation. ( Jan. 14 or 15 or 18, 2010 )
OPL staff can accommodate some late applications on the day of presentation. If necessary, the rest of the cards will be made up after January 14th and then delivered to the school for distribution.
