Supervision Before and After School

Students arriving for breakfast service between 7:30 - 8:00 am should proceed directly to the MP Room, and not to the playground or classrooms. All other students should arrive no earlier than 8:05 am, as playground supervision is not provided before this time.

On dismissal, 1st - 5th grade students proceed directly to the area between the MP Room and the driveway, where they should be picked up within 15 minutes of dismissal. No supervision is provided after that time.
