P.A. Day payments will be withdrawn on the Monday of the bi-weekly period the P.A. Day falls.

For the 2016/2017 school year, there are seven P.A. days planned for each school board.

Due to the level of planning required to coordinate P.A. Days for all the PLASP children, we request that parents commit to having their child attend all the P.A. Days. This ensures that parents and children requiring care during P.A. Days receive the care they need.
