Waivers & Refunds

Every school has a waiver and refund process. Upon receipt by the school principal of Form AF5105 Waiver Application parents of students who provide a copy of Goods and Services Tax (GST) credit notice with the names of dependent children listed, will qualify to have their fees waived. Waiver is applicable only to School Established Optional Course Fees. The deadline for submission of Form AF5105 Waiver Application to the school principal is June 30th of the current school year. School principals are responsible for the establishment of a refund procedure for students who are enrolled for a portion of the school year.

Field Trips at Cooper's Crossing School

We ask that when you pay for field trips, you pay online.  Please note that in most cases, field trip fees are non-refundable if the child is absent on the day of the trip.  This is due to transportation costs being shared by all expected to attend, or if the school needs to pay up front for participants whether they are in attendance or not.

However, if your child will be on vacation or having a pre-planned absence, please notify the teacher in advance on the permission form so the child can be removed from fee payment.

Please see above information under "Payment" to set up your child on School Cash Online.
