School Policy Reminders

  • All parents/visitors must stop at the office for a pass. Any items dropped off for your children must be brought to the office or placed on the Oops Cart outside the main doors. 

  • Please do not call the office after 3:00 p.m. for changes in dismissal. It is often too busy for the staff to locate classes in time to make a change in dismissal. 

  • For Health and Safety Reasons, we ask parents to please not bring dogs on school grounds.
