Arrangements for where students are going after school need to be made prior to coming to school. Our office is a very busy place and we cannot have students coming to the office all day long to call home to make alternate arrangements. It is also not possible to have students show up in the office late in the day to have bus notes signed. The time to have bus notes signed are: Before 8:50, during recess, during lunch. If students need to call home during the day due to extenuating circumstances (e.g. An after school activity is cancelled last minute) teachers are asked to allow students to use the phones in the classroom.
If you need to call LifeTouch regarding your child’s photo the number to call is: 1-877-305-4337
During recess and lunch students are NOT to carry backpacks, gym bags or purses.
Students are reminded of school expectations around personal electronic devices- they are only to be used before school, during recess, and lunch. Devices can only be used in classrooms with teacher permission. Devices are never to be used in the bathrooms or locker rooms.
Students are reminded if you haven’t already brought in your registration forms and student fees ($25) 45$ per family.
Please check the school calendar for important, upcoming dates!
