Unless they are enrolled in childcare, parents are requested to have their children arrive at school after 8:10 a.m. This is for purposes of child safety since teachers are on yard duty at 8:10 a.m. to supervise the play areas. Teachers are not available before this time because of lesson preparation necessary for the school day. Students arriving before 8:10 a.m. must wait on the Sunnyslope Avenue sidewalk or seated on the retaining wall of the playground.
After school it is a legal requirement that students go home to check in personally with parent or childcare. Children may use the playground after that. There is NO supervision after school.
Every Wednesday school is dismissed at 11:45 for kindergarten, 12:35 for primary grades and 12:40 for intermediate grades. This provides common staff planning time regarding curriculum, instruction and school wide articulation. Our required annual minutes of instruction are redistributed to allow for this valuable time.
