Our school is NUT AWARE! Please refrain from sending your child to school with any nut products. Thank-you!
Our school is SCENT FREE! Please refrain from wearing any scent, but in particular, NO COCONUT SCENT OR ANY AXE COLOGNE
In the interests of the well being of our school community, we are requesting that individuals refrain from using strongly scented products. Exposure to fragrances, cologne and scented hand or body lotions can cause allergic reactions, asthmatic symptoms and migraines, as well as general discomfort for certain individuals. In some cases, reactions can occur to even relatively mild scents, so we are asking for everyone to be aware and accommodate those that suffer from these sensitivities.
Thank you for your cooperation and we appreciate your support of our efforts to provide a healthy environment for our school.
Safety at School: When arriving at school in the morning, please have students proceed to their designated area to wait for the bell. When the weather is rainy, students may enter the building upon the double bell at 8:45 a.m. and proceed to their classrooms. Parents are asked not to accompany students to classrooms/coat hooks. If you have a message for the teacher, please send a note in the agenda or leave a message with the office. Students who arrive after the bell at 9 a.m. must sign in at the office.Unless otherwise arranged with the office, at the end of the day all students will meet their parents/guardians/caregivers outside the building at their entrance/ exit doors.
No Dog Policy : Please be reminded that Board policy states dogs are not allowed on school property. We ask that all dog owners respect this policy as we have students who have severe allergies or are terrified of dogs, no matter the size. Thank you for your co-operation.
School Yard Supervision: The school yard is supervised each day beginning at 8:45 and ending at 3:30. For safety reasons, students are not to be dropped off before 8:45 and are to be picked up by 3:30 at the latest. There is no supervision at the front of the building before/after school. All students are to proceed to the back of the building. Thank you for making sure your children are safe.
Kiss & Ride: Please be aware that the area at the front of the school adjacent to the parking lot is designated for Kiss and Ride for mornings only. We ask that students exit the vehicle on the right side in order to avoid possible dangers from oncoming cars. In addition, we request that you honour the Kiss and Ride concept, entering and exiting this area in a timely fashion. If for any reason you need to come into the school, we ask that you park your vehicle in the lot and then make your way into the school. This will eliminate any congestion as this is a very busy area before school. After school, there is no parking in the drive adjacent to the school. Please find a space in the lot. We thank you for
your cooperation and support in keeping our students safe.
Designated Lunch: Our designated lunch is the first Nutrition Break, from 11:00 am to 11:40 am. Students may depart the building with parental/guardian permission after signing out at the office, or remain at school to eat. ALL students will remain at school for the second Nutrition Break, from 1:00 pm to 1:40 pm. This is to ensure the safety of all students as attendance is taken upon arrival in the morning and after the first Nutrition Break. Please attend to this change in routine from previous years.
