    As the weather warms up - School safety remindars for before and after school: 


    Just a reminder that the front playground is closed to visitors during school from 8:00am to 4:05pm (or once all children have been picked up safely and are accounted for).  And the back playground is closed to visitors from 8:00am to 6:00pm Monday through Friday.

    Dogs on school grounds:

     As the weather warms up, we see dogs waiting outside the main entrance, on sidewalks and near the playground and bike racks during dismissal. We have many students that are either afraid of dogs or allergic, and some dogs get excited when they see children or other dogs. We understand that when the weather is nice people like to walk to school, often with their pets, to pick up students at the end of the day.

    Please keep dogs away from the main exit, sidewalks, and areas where children need to cross. Instead, please keep them well behind the bike racks in the grassy area.
