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.


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 during our outdoor play. We want everyone to have a great time!
