Principal's Message

Students will also regularly receive take home information on Fridays. School agendas have been given to kindergarten to grade six students the first week of school at no charge to students. Parents of students in grades seven and eight will be able to communicate with teachers using the remind app.

We have also gotten lines painted to ease and improve safety of traffic flow at the driveway at the front of the school. Please follow directions for drop and go and bus lane areas. We will soon have safety patrollers on buses and assisting the drop and go area at the front of the school following their training by the start of October..

I would also like to invite everyone to visit our Facebook Page again this year for updates on school events and happenings. We would like to take the opportunity to connect with parents and our community to share with everyone all of the great things that students, staff and our community do this year. The goal is to send out about one post per week and share one or two highlights and also a link back to our website so that anyone wishing to take a further look at any information will be able to do so.
