(1) Students may bring costumes in their bags to change into after lunch.  No costumes will be permitted in the morning.

(2) Absolutely no masks, weapon replicas or “scary” face painting.

(3) We ask that no food/candy is brought to school for distribution.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation in keeping our school safe.

A reminder about morning drop-off…

The Kiss’n’Ride in the morning :

  1. Carefully stop at the crosswalk, giving students the right of way.
  2. Quickly drop off your child/ren in the Kiss’n’Ride area behind the cross-walk—ensuring your child is ready to leave the car with his/her backpack and lunch in hand.
  3. Be considerate and careful of drivers and pedestrians around you.
  4. Be respectful to the directives of staff, wearing reflective vests, standing on curbs directing the flow of traffic.

At the end of the day:

  1. Mind the pylons and do not enter the staff parking lot or daycare parking spots between 2:50 p.m.—3:05 p.m.
  2. Do not block cars that are trying to leave from the parking lot.
  3. Yield right of way to cars using the Kiss’n’Ride if you are merging with this traffic.
