2018 - 19 SCHOOL YEAR!

We are looking forward to seeing all of our new and returning students on Tuesday, September 4th. We hope students have had a great summer break and are ready for a successful school year.


A few reminders for both parents and students...


The late and uniform policy will be strictly enforced from day one of the school year. Please review the letter that was sent home in June with student report cards to refresh yourselves of the guidelines and expectations (ie: NO nail polish; make-up; lines cut in boy's hair or eyebrows; extreme unnatural color/highlighted hair; earrings on boys/second earrings on girls! Any un-authorized jewelry will be confiscated from students and returned at the end of the term so please make sure to remove all inappropriate items before arriving at school. Boys are not permitted to place their earrings in the collars of their school shirts. Students should wear proper knee length socks. Please refer to the student handbook for the full uniform policy to be aware of what is acceptable.

PARKING

At NO time should parent's park their vehicles in a way that blocks the road, pedestrian gate or business entrances on Washington Street when dropping off or collecting students from the school premises. Administration appreciates everyone's cooperation.
