The main door of the school is open from 8:00 AM to 3:30 PM. Monday through Thursday, and 8:00 AM to 3:30 PM on Early Dismissal Fridays. All other doors remain locked during the day so we can monitor who enters our building.
Anyone visiting the school, including parents, is required to sign-in at the main office.
Parents are asked not to access the school building through the rear student entry doors at any time. Parents wishing to volunteer or visit their child’s classroom are welcome to make arrangements in advance with the teacher and enter through the main office. Should you need to speak with the teacher please check at the front desk and our receptionist will be happy to contact the teacher.
Supervision is provided on the school playground between 8:15-8:30 AM and at lunch time. Please do not drop off children prior to 8:15 AM as there will be no supervision. There is no after school supervision. We ask that morning Kindergarten students dismissed at 11:16 AM not play on the community playground after dismissal, as the school playground and fields are often used for outside physical education activities on a daily basis and are accessed by lunchroom students. All students and community children are welcome to access our playground after 2:55 PM.
Students who go home for lunch should not return to the school before 12:05 PM. The lunchroom staff provides supervision for those students in the lunch program before this time. Teachers are on supervision duty from 12:05 to 12:20 PM for all children. Returning students must access the school grounds and play on the main playground where supervision is available. Please do not have students line up at 12:05 PM at the south or east doors as there is no direct supervision. Students going home for lunch on inclement weather days may access the building through the main doors on their return.
Please ensure that your child has arranged after school plans with you before coming to school, as telephones are designated for school business. Students may use the phone in cases of emergency or at the request of a staff member.
For safety reasons we do not confirm the enrolment of a child at our school over the telephone. This becomes very difficult when parents phone to ask us to pass along messages, as we cannot always identify the caller. If your child needs to go to a location other than home at dismissal time please make these arrangements ahead of time and with the classroom teacher if possible. A note in the folder is very helpful and greatly appreciated.
Please notify the school as soon as possible if you have a change of address, email address, home or work phone numbers or a change in your child’s emergency contact, or the contact’s phone number.
If you have custody arrangements for your child, please make sure that the school has the appropriate documentation or directions on file. The purpose is so the school can clearly identify who has permission to pick up children from school and who has access to student information.
