We will continue with the following procedure/polices we put in place last year:
All students, staff and visitors are required to wear a face covering
When students arrive at school between 8:05-8:15 they will stand on their assigned paw print number
If you need to drop off a forgotten item to your child: ring the bell, tell office staff who it is for, and leave it on the table outside of the door, we will get it to your child
If you need to pick your child up early from school, please call the office to inform them what time you will be there. When you arrive; to make it easier for you, call the office and we will send your child out to you. Office staff will sign them out for you
Volunteers (ALL adults that would like to volunteer in the school must fill out a volunteer form and be approved before any staff member can call to ask for your assistance.)
If you need to visit the office or would like to meet with a staff member we ask that you please call first, some questions may be able to be answered without a visit to the school. If needed we will schedule an appointment for you to come in.
Please do a daily health check before sending your child to school. Please see this document for more information.
There is no need for students to be on the school ground until just prior to the first bell in the morning which rings at 8:15 am. Supervision begins at 8:05. ALL students need to go to their recess doors at 8:05 and wait to be let in by staff at 8:15. In the event that it is raining or too cold, students should still go to their exit doors, staff will let them in. No students should be entering the building through the front doors, unless it is after 8:15.
Please be prompted in picking your child up for school. School ends at 3:08. We do not have supervision for students who are not picked up on time. If you know that you will be a few minutes late, please contact the teacher or the office. Please make sure that your child knows what their afterschool plans are before they come to school that day.
