It is also picture retakes in the morning. If you would like your child to re-take their picture, please send them to school with the original pictures to return. Afternoon preschool students who want re-takes need to arrive at 9:00am for retakes.
This Friday is an in-service day, so there is no school for students.
As a reminder, the main entrance of the school remains locked until 8:30am because we do not have staff here to monitor students before then. Please do not drop off your children before 8:30am. This is especially true as colder weather arrives. We do not want children left outside in the cold.
Snow is the the forecast! That means it's time to start sending kids with warm winter gear so they are prepared for recess every day. If possible, please leave a set of snow pants, hat, and gloves at school. If you can't leave a set at school, please be sure your child brings them daily. Once the snow is flying and the temperatures are colder, full gear will be required daily. Thank you.
