Safe Schools Procedures

A reminder to all that morning yard supervision does not start until 9:00am. Please do not drop off students unattended before this time.

We thank you for checking in at the office when entering the school and ensuring that students who leave early or arrive late are signed in/out at the office. We also remind students and families that all communication should come through the office, rather than texting students/home directly. This allows for less disruption to student learning time and also for office staff to ensure safe school procedures are in place. We thank you for your help with this.

We will be hosting a volunteer appreciation continental breakfast in the library on May 10th from 8:30am-9:15am. Invitation flyers will be sent home with students this week; please mark your calendar. We hope to see all our valued volunteers there, and look forward to enjoying conversation, appreciation and a cup of tea with you.
