From the office

Office Hours
The office is open 8am-3pm. Closed during recess (10-10:15am), lunch (11:50am-12:20pm) and 1:50-2:05pm. We will be training office monitors to cover during lunch and will advise parents once this is up and running.

Student Pick Ups
If you need to pick your child up during the school day, please do so by 11:45 am or after 12:30 pm as it is difficult to call students when they are outside. Please remember that anytime you are picking your students up during the school day (prior to 2:23 pm), it is essential that you notify the classroom teacher and office to ensure that the class is onsite and not on a walk.
