Principal's Message

Dear Families-
Cold weather is upon us! We have had several rainy and cold day schedules as of late. Even with the colder weather, children still discard their jackets on the playgrounds as they warm up. Unfortunately, all too often, they neglect to get their jackets when recess ends. These often end up in the lost and found. Periodically, staff goes through the lost and found to return items- but only if they are marked with the child's name. Please be sure that your child's outerwear and lunch box is/are labelled.
Thank you

Yours in Education,
Kevin Curran, Principal

Secure Pick-Up Procedures

The last PE class ends at 2:05 pm. After the students are picked up, the tables are set down for secure pick up. The purpose of the tables is to control the proper release of students to adults. Without a barrier, children may run to an adult they recognize- defeating the purpose of secure pick up.
It is our goal to open the gym doors at 2:10 pm daily. Thank you.

Information on Breakfast and the 7:35 Bell

The gym doors open at 7:15 am or a little earlier depending on the bus arrivals. School begins at 7:35 AM. Therefore, the cut-off time for breakfast is 7:30. However, if a school bus is late, the breakfast time is extended. Parents, if you drop off your child for school and would like them to eat breakfast, please have them here before 7:30 AM.
Thank. you.

Tardy Procedures

For security, the gym doors are locked after the bell (7:35 AM). If your child arrives after the bell, they will need to come through the front doors in order to get a tardy slip.
