For the first day only, all students will meet their teacher on the field(s). There will be a sign and the teacher will be waiting in a designated spot.

Class specific details will be shared by your teacher at a later time
**Kindergarten will begin this week with the staggered entry schedule provided last June.
If your child is late (after 8:58), please use the front doors and have your child head to the office for a late slip. If your child will be absent please call the office 403-777-8360 and leave a message with child's name and reason for absence.
