Home / School News / Ruth King Elementary School May 30th to June 3rd, 2022


Standing Reminders:

  • We are working on student placements for next year. If you know you will be moving over the summer, please let me know as soon as possible.  At the moment for next year, we have 14 spaces left at Ruth King.
  • Please remember to do the “Daily Health Check” with your child and keep them home if your child is sick or displaying any symptoms.
  • Staff parking is an issue for us when parents are parked in the designated stalls on Matson Road. Please refrain from parking in these stalls when dropping off your child.  Your attention to this matter is greatly appreciated.
  • Please refrain from riding bikes, scooters, and skateboards on the playground.
  • Please remember not to bring dogs onto the Ruth King grounds as it is a dog free zone. Thank you.
