Dear Parents/Guardians,

If you are coming into the school to visit your child’s classroom, please sign in at the office and get a visitor’s pass. Thank you.

Please make sure you have pre-arranged a meeting spot for after school pick-ups. If your child does not find their pick-up person, it is our policy that the students come back into the building and check in at the office. Please remind your child to leave their toys at home. This includes sports equipment. We have plenty of toys at school and this will help prevent arguments. Thank you for your help with this.

Coming Up in the next couple months:

November 25 to Dec 3 – first term report card window; expect a report card or point of progress for your child.
December 10 – PAC meeting 6:30pm – everyone is welcome
