Our SAM Leadership Crew!

This is what Mrs. Robertson from SAM school had to say about her helpers:

These kids were responsible, punctual, and reliable. They would do the activities right alongside the kids. They made strong connections with my kids who hated to see them go today. [My kids] would absolutely light up when they arrived!

If your child will be absent, please email or call 780-460-3728 (this is 24 hrs and you can leave a voicemail)

If a student needs to leave early, the office MUST hear from a parent/guardian. Please email or call the office and we will allow the student to sign out & meet you outside (or walk home).

If a student will arrive late, they are to sign in at the office. If we have been informed the student will be late, that will be an excused late. Without hearing from a parent, the student would be marked as unexcused.

If you have any questions, please ask the office.
