Frequently Asked Questions
We require all staff and volunteers working with students to have a Criminal Record Check clearance letter on file with us prior to the event/class. This sometimes takes a bit of time after you contact us to proceed with the CRC. You can contact us at anytime to get this on file. Please download and fill in the CRC application letter below and send to Dawn as per the instructions.

Learning Camps are single day or short term activities such as a fieldtrip or workshop. Community Connections are a half or full day opportunities once/ week throughout the school year. These multi-term classes are more of a campus style environment while maintaining a home education flavour. Co-ops are also multi-term events where parent participation is expected to facilitate the weekly classes.
Application to an HCOS community connections (CC) is a separate process than enrolling for the school. Application links to register become available starting in mid to late-May. First students currently enrolled in CC will have the opportunity to apply, then those in the waiting pool and then information will be posted here.
To find out when registration is open, DO sign up for 'e-alerts' and an email will be sent directly to your inbox as soon as application for new events opens. To facilitate approval of an application to CC, please have your child participate in a learning camp prior to application to a CC.
We have automatic emails that are send to the email address given in the online registration once submit is clicked.
If you did not receive the confirmation email, it could be that you entered your email incorrectly (in which case I get an undeliverable message), submit was not pressed to complete your registration, or perhaps the email was directed to your junk mail folder. If concerned, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
A confirmation email is automatically sent when submit is pressed on your application. Applications are reviewed manually, priority goes to Heritage students and where there are group challenges we wish to make sure a student is fully supported so as to participate successfully. All these points affect when the link for a Learning Camp may be closed as full. We appreciate your understanding.
