    5. Drop Off and Pick Up Reminders: we appreciate your help and consideration to keep all of the students safe!

    Please be sure not to drop students off before 8:30. There is no staff on duty before then and students are not allowed in the building before then unsupervised.

    Please be careful when dropping off and picking up to follow parking lot rules and etiquette. Rushing and having students walk across the parking lot can be dangerous for all.  The students safety is of utmost concern.


    1. COLD weather has arrived, please be sure the students have warm coats, hats, and gloves.  They are outside on most days from 8:30-9:00am and again for recess.  If you need assistance with some warm clothing, please just let us know and we will do our best to help out.
    2. Attendance Matters:
      1. Each month a homeroom will be awarded attendance award for the month for the best overall attendance.  Their picture will be posted on our website. October’s Attendance winner was Mrs Alves’ Grade 3 classroom!  Congratulations to room 208!
      2. ATTENDANCE CONTEST: school every day raffle…. Every student who is here daily until Thanksgiving will have their name entered to win a prize for their family. Help your student succeed academically and get a chance to win a prize as well!
