CTB Peer Leaders Visiting Elementary Schools
Early Dismissal February 17th ~ Walker Information
Local businesses have recently brought to our attention that Barkalow students are not representing themselves in the best way when visiting restaurant establishments on half days. Please have a conversation with your child about behavioral expectations reminding them that they represent many parties. Also, as we all know, Route 537 is a very busy intersection, so please remind your child about safety when crossing the road.
Thank you for your anticipated cooperation.
Mr. Smith Mrs. Rosen
