Principal’s Message to Families

Happy Monday,  

I hope your weekend was a restful one.  We are starting off our 4th week of school and thus far it has been an amazing year.  To keep the ball rolling, I will be having a coffee with the Principal on Wednesday.  Please come to our Zoom to say hi, ask questions, or just participate in the discussions.  HERE is the Zoom link.  We’d also like people to remember to be careful during drop-off and pickup.  All we need to do is follow the signage and drive safely.  Important emails are being sent out during the week, so please make sure to check regularly.  We will also soon be rolling out a lunchtime attendance system.  Details forthcoming.
