(Parking Lot).
Children’s safety is a priority at all times while on school property. Thank you for
your assistance.
Now that colder weather is upon us, we respectfully remind you to ensure that your
children come to school dressed warmly to participate in recess activities.
When weather conditions are severe, we may reduce the outdoor playtime, or have
indoor recess entirely. Fresh air and exercise are vital components for successful
learning, so we will endeavour to have children play outside whenever possible. Help
your children come to school appropriately dressed with scarves, hats and mittens on
those really chilly days!
For health and safety reasons and to help keep the school safe and clean, we ask all
students to have indoor shoes. Thank you for your support in this matter.
