Some Important School Updates

We’ve had a great start to the school year and we’re so glad to have students join and rejoin us this Fall. We wish to share with the community that since our earlier Spring projections, we have registered more than forty new students to the school. To this end, the current school organization should continue to be considered a tentative organization and given enrollment changes it is highly likely we will need reorganize our current classes at the end of September. We are grateful for your support as we finalize our enrollments and plan to accommodate for our growing student body.

As well, we wish to share several important safety reminders:

  • School begins at 8:30 a.m., with supervision beginning 15 minutes earlier, at 8:15 a.m.  We would kindly remind families that students should not be dropped off at the school before 8:15 a.m.
  • As always, we encourage our parents and guardians and their child(ren) to walk to school or park lawfully on one of the nearby adjacent streets and walk to school.  For parents dropping students off, please do so in our Kiss and Ride area –the area marked with yellow lines—taking note of the bus drop off lane closest to the school.  Expectedly, traffic is very busy at entry and dismissal times and we ask that everyone be especially mindful in their driving in the interest of our collective safety.  Please remember not to park in the staff parking lot.
  • We ask all parents walking students home to make use of pedestrian walkways, sidewalks and the supervised crossing area by the front doors of the school.  Please do not cross through the bus and car lane at any other point.  We are appreciative of all pedestrians who cross the traffic lanes only at the designated crossing point in the interest of everyone’s safety.
  • We are grateful to see a number of students minimizing their environmental footprint by coming to school on bicycles.  Please remind your child that they should walk their bicycle once on school property (they should not be riding through the parking lot or on the pedestrian sidewalk) and that all student cyclists must be wearing helmets.

We extend our thanks to all our community members for their ongoing support of the school.
