Dear Parents and Guardians:
As we enter into the last two weeks before our Christmas Break, please be mindful that on days buses are cancelled, it is only bus students who are excused. All other absences must be reported through Safe Arrivals. Ensure children have dressed appropriately for the weather. To play in the snow, students should be wearing snow pants and boots.
Thanks again for your generous support on Paint the Town Red Day. We were able to raise $1600 for the United Way!
