To better ensure student safety and to address the currently overcrowding on our tarmac upon entrance - we are moving to a process where we are asking parents/guardians to drop children off at the fences/borders of our school yard.
Although we always strive to be warm and welcoming, with over 625 students on property in the morning & staff on supervision not able to clearly identify every adult on our yard - it is no longer possible to have parents/guardians waiting on our school yard/tarmac before the bell rings.
During School Hours
Our growing student population is also restricting access to our gym - and as a result we are using outdoor space for gym between the hours of 9:10-3:20 daily. We will have additional supervision on our yard by trained volunteers as well as our regular supervision staff
We are asking that parents/guardians:
- Drop their children at the fence and do not enter the tarmac/play area of the students (you are welcome to wait along the fence lines)
- Respectfully wait off school property until 3:20pm at the end of the day….then proceed to pick-up your child as you normally have (giving our staff right up until 3:20 pm to use our outdoor space as an alternative to our gym)
Thank-you for your continued understanding & support as we keep growing. Student safety is always at the forefront of all our decisions.
This new change will begin after Thanksgiving (starting October 9th, 2018)
