LOST & FOUND

Please have your student(s) check the Lost and Found area if they are missing anything. There are lots of gloves, hats, sweatshirts, etc. We will be cleaning up this area monthly and donating to a local charity if left unclaimed.

2020-21 CLASSROOM PLACEMENT

Class placement forms are available in the office if you wish to provide specific input into your child's 2020-21 classroom assignment. Please have these forms returned by Thursday, April 9th. Please do not phone or email this information to us.

SCHOOL SAFETY

Your child's safety is of prime importance to us. There are a few procedure guidelines that help us maintain a secured building and limit the number of distractions to our classrooms. Our building is designed to have a single entry point during the school day. Please keep the following in mind:


  • Always check in at the office whenever you are at school.
  • When delivering things for your child (ex. snow gear), please drop them off at the office. We will deliver articles or call your child down to the office.
  • When picking up your child early from school, please do so by signing them out at the office. The office personnel will contact your child’s teacher to dismiss them and meet you in the office.
