Every day the students need to bring:

          • Hearty snack

          • Appropriate shoes for P.E.
          • Appropriate outdoor clothing

Dismissal: Please pull up into the round-about and wait. We will walk your child(ren) to your car. This ensures that we know they were delivered to you safely. Thank you for your cooperation.

*On Pizza Days, please send your child(ren) in with $1/slice of pizza. Slices are "double cut". We are able to order gluten free pizza.
