Important Reminders when Enrolled in an ECA
  • Students are reminded that hats are needed for all outside activities. Remember the school policy which says: "If You Have a Hat, You Can Play". Students should also bring water bottles and sunscreen. If they forget their hat they will have to stay in the shade which may mean they do not participate in the ECA. It is not the responsibility of the ECA teacher/coach to get a hat for the student, call anybody to bring a hat for the student nor allow the student to leave the ECA to get a hat.
  • If your child is in school but is not going to attend their ECA please let us know by 12pm/mid-day latest. As per the the ECA Guidelines, adopted since School Year 2016-2017, notification after this time will result in your child receiving an Unauthorised Absence (UA). Two UA's and they will automatically be removed from the ECA.

ECA Absences / Guidelines

Please refer to the ECA Guidelines, adopted since School Year 2016-2017, concerning absences from ECAs. If you know your child is going to be absent from an ECA please let the class/homeroom teacher, Office Manager and Mrs Christina (christina.balogang@kics.sd ) know by 12pm/noon the day of the ECA so your son/daughter doesn't receive an Unauthorised Absence (UA). Remember, two UA's and the student is automatically removed from the ECA.

Bus Service

During ECA seasons there is an additional bus service at 345pm for students that usually take the 245pm KICS bus home. Please contact kicsbus@kics.sd directly for any questions.  For concerns about school buses, please ask the bus persons in-charge and not the ECA Coordinator.
