Milk will be available for students, purchased on a per year basis. Four choices of milk will be available to students each day – 2% regular milk, no fat regular milk, no fat chocolate milk and no fat strawberry milk (note, these choices are subject to change due to availability and demand). Students will be able to make their own milk choices. If a parent wishes the student to select a specific choice, please instruct the student to do so. If a student is allergic to a specific type of milk, i.e. chocolate, please complete the appropriate clinic form and instruct the homeroom teacher of the allergy.

Yearbooks are ordered at the beginning of the year, and delivered at the end of the year. Yearbooks are printed by the number of copies ordered, with only a few extra copies available for purchase at the end of the year. It is most likely that if you do not order the yearbook(s) at the beginning of the year, you will not be able to obtain a copy.
Dropping off and picking up students requires attention to detail and following posted procedures in order to keep our students safe. Please view the document which describes the drop off and pick up procedures.
- Walk up students will be dismissed by teachers following the loading of all cars. In order to insure that a) all students are under supervision during dismissal, and b) teachers’ attention are not distracted during the times when there are moving vehicles, students being picked up by parents from the school using the walk up method will not be released until all moving vehicles are loaded. You are encouraged to pick up students from your vehicle, as this will now be the most expeditious pick up method. It is extremely important that students understand that they are not to independently locate parents and “self-dismiss.” Teachers are required to account for the supervision of all students and any student leaving that supervision, even at the direction of parents, are violating this procedure. Please be patient and follow this new procedure to help insure the safety of all students!
- Immediately following dismissal, at 3:15 PM, supervision of students will be turned over to the after school care staff. Pick up of students from After School Care will be by a walk up and sign out procedure, and incurs a full day’s after school care charge. Teachers are required to attend meetings and other obligations at 3:15, and are not available to supervise students after 3:15 PM. Parents are given a 25 minute “grace” period between the 2:50 PM dismissal time and the 3:15 PM cut off.
Handbook and Technology Acceptable Use forms
Knowing the “rules” and understanding how to remain safe when using the available technology in the school is important for the health and safety of all of our students. Please read the parent / student handbook as well as the technology acceptable use policies (one for Grades 1 – 5 and one for Middle School). Students and parents are asked to acknowledge reading these documents by signing and submitting the forms below.
