A Note From Our Principal

Spring has finally arrived and we want to make sure all of our students can take full advantage of our outdoor play spaces. Please make sure that your child has a spare set of well-fitting, weather-appropriate clothes that are labeled including socks.  Our teachers are planning outdoor games and activities to celebrate spring. We can’t wait to share these activities with your child!

Illness Policy Reminder

Our parents are vital partners in helping us to maintain a safe and healthy environment for the students in our school. The most important thing you can do to assist us in creating a healthy environment is to keep your child home if they are ill. This reduces the spread of illness and allows your child to fully recuperate. For more information please see our Parent Handbook or reach out to a member of our administrative team.

Spring Clothing Reminder

If you’ve not already done so, please check with your child’s teacher to ensure they have an extra set of weather appropriate clothes. Students also need to come to school each day  dressed appropriately  to play outside for part of the day. We want everyone to be able to participate!

Links 2 Home

 If you’re not currently receiving photos and daily reports for your child you can easily change this by downloading the Links 2 Home app on your phone. Just type ‘Links 2 Home’ in the search bar for the Apple App Store or Google Play Store. After downloading Links 2 Home you can register with the same email address that you used to enroll your child in our school
