First Day of School

first-day-of-school

We look forward to welcoming back our students on Tuesday September 2, 2014. Students are asked to be on the school property no later than 8:40 a.m. (On the first day, students in JK attend for the last 100 minutes only, beginning at 1:35 p.m.) Please be advised that school starts at 8:55 a.m. sharp, our lunch hour will be from 12:35 p.m. – 1:35 p.m. and the scheduled end time is 3:15 p.m. for all grades.  Please plan drop off and pick up times accordingly.  For the first day please ensure that your child either brings a lunch or has written permission to go home.

On Tuesday, students are asked to congregate at the rear of the school where staff will be manning tables with class placement lists for all students.  Parents/guardians are invited to join the students on the tarmac to see who their child(ren)’s teacher is/are.  If it is raining, students will be brought into the gym (primary, junior) and library (intermediate) to be put into classes. Please be reminded that due to the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act, class lists are not posted. Please also note that the organization on the first day of school is a tentative organization and as enrollment changes we may have to reorganize our current classes.

Once again, we are encouraging our parents/guardians and their child/children to walk to school or park on one of the adjacent streets and walk to school. Our parking lot is very busy at entry and dismissal times and with the addition of Full Day Kindergarten we anticipate having more vehicle traffic in the parking lot. Please be reminded to not park in the Kiss and Ride … and please walk if you can.

We look forward to a great new school year!
