2014 / 2015 Peel International Languages Late Registration
Posted by Gabriel Bazan on 08 August 2014 12:10 PM

School-Day is pleased to announce that Registration for 2014-2015 Peel International Languages classes will be open from Monday, August 11 to Saturday, March 7, 2015 for elementary students, and Monday, August 11 to Thursday, October 16 for secondary students. Registration can only be completed online.

 

During this Registration period, you will be able to Register your child for the 2014-2015 International Languages Program, if you did not previously Register them during the Pre-Registration period. If you have already pre-registered, you do not need to register them again. This registration is open to both Peel and Non-Peel Students who have not yet registered.

 

Before submitting your application for 2014 / 2015 International Languages classes, please be advised that class fees are $20.00 per class, and online payment via School-Day is mandatory at the time of submitting your application. An application will not be processed by Peel unless the class fee has been paid.

 

 If your application is not accepted, you will be refunded your class fee minus a $5.00 administrative fee by Peel. For this reason you should only submit one application per student. If you submit multiple applications for a student, you will be required to make a payment each time, with a non-refundable administrative fee. Please take this under consideration before making your application, and ensure that you are applying for the correct class at the correct school before moving ahead with the process below.

 

The first step is to go to this link on the Peel International Languages page:

 

http://www.peelschools.org/parents/programs/international/register/Pages/default.aspx

 

Click on the Register button, and then select the Language, Grade, and School you would like your child to attend. If a specific school is not listed in the School dropdown menu, this means that the course you are looking for is not offered at that location or, the school you’re looking for could be a satellite site, and you will have to select another site for enrolment. For a complete list of locations and courses, please go to: www.peelschools.org/conted/il

A School-Day account is required to proceed with Registration and you will be able to either create your School-Day account at this time, or log into your existing account if you have one. If you already have a School-Day account, look for the yellow bar at the top of the screen, and click on Click Here to Sign In. Please make sure that you are entering in your information and your email address during the account creation process, and not that of your child. Use an email address that you have access to and that you check regularly since you will receive future notifications from Peel to this email address. Be sure to remember your password for future use.

 

Once you have either created an account, or logged into your existing account, you will see a registration box at the top of the screen for the class you have selected. You will then have to either select a student already attached to your account, or create a new student. To create a new student, select the New Student option from the drop down menu in the registration box, and then click on Register. You will then be required to enter in their First and Last Name exactly as it appears on their report card, birth certificate or passport. Once you have entered in their name, click on Continue.

 

Next, fill in all applicable fields including Student information, Guardian, and Emergency Contact Information, and any medical your child may have. If your child is currently enrolled in the Peel International Languages Program, you will select that they are a Peel Student and enter in their Peel Student Number. If they are enrolling for the first time and do not regularly attend a Peel school, you will select Non-Peel Student, and enter in their Ontario Education Number (OEN) which can be found at the top of any report card. If your child will be enrolling into Kindergarten and they do not have a Student Number, select Non-Peel Student and click on the box by Kindergarten Application. Please note that Student and OEN numbers are not available from School-Day. If you need help obtaining this information, please contact your school office.

 

You can save your form in progress at any time by clicking on the Save button at the bottom of the registration form. You will be able to access the saved form in progress by clicking on the Registration Box at the top of the screen for the form in progress. Once you have filled in all of these fields, click on the Submit button at the bottom of the registration form. Please note that all mandatory data fields must be populated before you can proceed, and are marked with a red asterisk.

 

Once you have submitted your form, you will need to make your $20.00 online payment for the class. Please note that applications will not be reviewed by Peel prior to payment being made. To complete your application, you must make your payment online. If your application is not accepted, you will be refunded your class fee minus a $5.00 administrative fee. To make your payment, click on the Pay Now button. On the next screen click on Checkout. You may be redirected at this time to complete your account profile if you have not already done so. If you are redirected, fill in all mandatory fields and include at least one contact phone number, then click on Update on the bottom left hand side of the screen. You will be redirected to your Cart, where you can now click on Checkout once again.

On the next screen, enter in all credit or debit card information to process your payment. Once your payment has been received, your application will be pending approval. You will be notified via email when your application has been reviewed and approved, or not approved, by the Peel Administrator. Formation of classes is an ongoing process from September to March and only when there is space for your child(ren) will the registration(s) be confirmed.

 

Please do not contact School-Day regarding the status of your application or refund.  Only the Peel Administrator can provide you with this information, or provide you with a refund where applicable. For Peel School contact information, please visit the link below to find your school.

If you need would like to submit an application to another class for another student, you may do so with any existing account by following these same steps. You do not need to create a separate account for multiple applications.

 

Do not delete your School-Day account once you have submitted an application. Doing so will disconnect your attachment to all submitted applications for the students you are trying to register. Accounts cannot be reinstated once they have been deleted.

School-Day's Summer Procedure
Posted by Helene Reinders on 25 June 2014 12:50 PM

Over the summer, School-Day places most schools in read-only mode. If your school is in read-only mode, you will see a red warning at the top of your screen when you sign in. 

Users can log in and view information, but cannot perform actions like purchasing or creating posts. This helps us ensure that over the summer postings and purchases aren't assigned to the wrong class, as class and school records will change in September.

During the summer, the School-Day offices remain open, as we work on the new features and updates. We monitor the System and we continue to provide support. If you have any issues with accessing your information, please contact us.

For the week of June 30th to July 4th, the School-Day offices will be closed for our summer holiday.

Thanks,

The School-Day Support Team

Linking Students to Parent Accounts
Posted by Helene Reinders on 14 April 2014 03:26 PM

School-Day is currently experiencing an issue with the Electronic Authentication method of linking a student to a parent account. We have noticed that we’re having a higher than normal number of unsuccessful links occurring, which parent users will see as "Failure to Authenticate" errors. As a result, parents will need to contact their school administrator,  in order to obtain a Secure-Match key to link their student. While we investigate the issue and correct it, the Secure-Match key will be the only method of linking a student.

 

Please note that School-Day support agents cannot release Secure-Match keys, as we cannot verify a student's legal guardian. Only a school administrator is authorized to release the Secure-Match key. Please contact School-Day support if you require contact information for your school. 

 

Thanks,
School-Day Support

“Heartbleed” Bug in OpenSSL
Posted by Helene Reinders on 09 April 2014 11:16 AM

While School-Day does not use OpenSSL software, our SSL certificates may have been affected by the recently identified bug Heartbleed. As a preventative measure we have updated our SSL certificates to include appropriate corrections.  As School-Day does not store payment card data, we are a low-risk target for any breaches. However, to ensure the privacy of our users, we will reset our production servers today at 11:59pm EST, for approximately 5 seconds to implement our changes.

 

If you are using School-Day during these few seconds you may need to reload your page. Any open items will save, and you should experience only a minimal disruption in service.

 

Users may wish to take the additional precaution of changing their passwords, however at this time, we do not do not believe that there have been any breaches of School-Day information, and we believe our user data is secure.

 

If you have any further questions about this issue, please contact us by email at info@school-day.com.

 

Thank you,

School-Day Support
