Just some reminders and updates…
Please do not park vehicles by the fence near the playground, as this could become a serious Health and Safety issue. We have 2 pylons outside of the playground to keep all vehicles away from this area. However, should the pylons be moved, cars are not to park near the playground, as our Toddler class plays in the area and safety is our first priority.
Family Day is Monday, February 17th. The school will be closed. Enjoy this special time with your family.
The school is closed March 16th to March 27nd inclusive. We resume classes on Monday, March 30th.
