What do I do when my child is Sick or Away?

When your child will be away from school, it is Ministry mandated to call or email the office before 9:00am to report the absence, please also cc your child’s teacher. If you email to report the absence, you do not need to send a written note when your child returns as the email notification is sufficient.  If you call to report the absence, please send a note listing the dates and reason for the absence.

Parking

Parking at the front of the school is for staff only. There is no parking, drop-off or pick-up at the front door between 7:45am – 3:30pm. If you are coming in to volunteer or to pick up or drop off your child, please make sure to park in the designated area between the church and school. Thank you for your cooperation.

Student Drop Off Procedures
Listed below are procedures that should be followed when dropping your child off at school:


1.  Be extremely cautious and patient.
2.  Follow directions of playground supervisors on duty. Be respectful of the supervisors.
3.  Pull as far forward along the drop off area as possible before stopping your vehicle.
4.  Allow room for as many vehicles as possible to pull in behind you.
5.  After stopping, be certain it is safe for your child to exit your vehicle on the passenger side only.
6.  Say you’re goodbye’s before your turn to unload. Traffic will move more quickly for everyone.

7.  Never leave your vehicle unattended in the Student Drop Off area.
8.  Be cautious when driving out of the parking lot and out of the school zone.

Crosswalk Safety

Unfortunately, this year we are very lean on outside supervision parents.  Therefore, we want to ensure that parents teach their children crosswalk safety procedures and have a discussion with their children about safety on the school grounds.
