Administrators' Message

Dear Sandymount Families ~

Great news! Beginning October 4th, visitors will be allowed to participate in outside school activities during the school day. That means visitors will be allowed to come and watch students during our Fun Run on October 14th! The Fun Run will take place on the field at Sandymount Park during your child’s special area class time. Please join your child’s class outside on the field. No need to check in at the main office. We will have a visitor’s sign in station set up outside. We look forward to seeing our Sandymount families again!
