  • If you are running late, please drop off your child at the front door and let the staff take them to class.
  • If your child is going to be away from school, picking up early for appointments, or late picking up, it is important to email your child’s teacher and Ms. Jodi our secretary (jward@sd62.bc.ca) to let them know directly. Also, if you plan to pick up your child early, please email the same people to let them know.

Please do not park in the staff parking lot or spaces on Matson Road when dropping off your children.  There are very limited spaces and if you are parked in the spaces, the Ruth King staff will have no spaces to park.
