Specifically, students are required to remove all caps, hats, toques, etc. in the school and are to remove all outerwear before entering the classroom. Students must wear indoor shoes in the school at all times. The school reserves the right to determine the appropriateness of student attire. If clothing is deemed inappropriate, students will be asked to change.
If your child is absent please call the school before 9am and leave a message with the reason for the absence. Regular attendance and punctuality is important for a student’s success. Please help us by getting your child to school every day and on time. Remember children who arrive late often miss the instructional portion of the lesson therefore making it difficult for them to catch up.
Your child needs sound nutrition to learn. Please be advised that soft drinks, candy, chips and highly sugared or high fat snack foods are not permitted in school lunches. During morning snack time students are always encouraged to eat the healthiest snack they have.
Please read our Healthy Snacks & Lunches on the Wellness program page for some ideas and helpful tips.
