Elementary Newsletter

February 8, 2020

From the Elementary Principal

As we get going into the second semester I just wanted to send out a few reminders:

Students should NOT be dropped off at school before 7:45 a.m. If students are here before that time it is a safety issue because the staff does not have to report for work until 7:45. This means that there are no adults supervising before that.

Also, unfortunately the cold weather isn’t over yet.  Please make sure that students bring their winter gear (hats, gloves/mittens, snow pants, jackets and boots) to school each day.  We do have a few hats and mittens that students can borrow but with the increased number of students borrowing these items there is not enough for everyone. 

Thank you so much for your help.
