Head Lice

Please check periodically for head lice. Spending 5 minutes a week checking your family (both male and female) for head lice will help control the spread through your family, friends and through our school. If you find signs of head lice or nits, please contact the main office so that the appropriate steps can be taken. A letter will be sent home with the students in the classes affected asking families to please check their children. More information you can call KFL&A Public Health for more information 613-549-1232.

Bus Loading Zone

Traffic in front of the school is very busy at pick up time.

Please be very cautious if you are parking on the opposite side of the street. We have staff outside watching the students but many parents are calling their kids from across the street. Although most students are great at checking both ways before crossing, we are worried for their safety.

Also, the bus loading area must be kept free for the 4 buses. Please don't park in this area during bus loading times.

Overall, things are running smoothly at the end of the day! Thanks for helping us keep kids safe!
