January 3 - Gr. 4 and 5 Families - Drop-off/Pick up location change

In an effort to reduce vehicle congestion in the back loop of the school parking/drop off/pick up, we are asking grade 4 and 5 families to drop their student off to line up outside the front of the school, rather than at the back and adding to the congestion. We thought we would be in the new school and wouldn't need to make a change, but as we don't yet have a move in date, we need to make the change now to try to keep students safe and minimize risk.

Starting January 3, please drop your gr. 4 or 5 student off to line up in the front of the school yard.  If they are crossing the street in front of the school, please ensure they do so safely, using the crosswalk. 

Thanks for your help!


January 3, 2022! - Welcome back - regular classes resume!
