Winter Recess

Students will have recess outside when the weather permits and the temperature is 40 degrees or above.  Recess will be indoors during inclement weather and when temperatures are below 40 degrees.

Early Pick-Up Procedures Reminder

When your child(ren) needs to leave school early, before 2:30pm when we begin preparing for dismissal, it is important that you send a note (paper note or email) to your child’s teacher informing them that your child(ren) will be leaving early.  The note helps to ensure that your child is ready to be dismissed in a timely manner when you arrive for pick-up.

A good practice is to call the main office to inform us of the early dismissal to ensure that your child’s teacher did receive the message. 

Having your child(ren) prepared for an early dismissal will take time when we are not notified in advance.  


Warm Regards,

Mrs. Jean-Denis
