Where do I pick up my child after school?

My child would like to celebrate his/her birthday with the class. Can we bring in a birthday treat?
 We would love to celebrate your child's birthday.  Due to severe food allergies in our school, there is a school wide policy that all birthday treats be inedible.  Pencils, stickers, small toys are great options.

Why does my child have homework? 

Daily math homework is part of our Everyday Mathematics program. The homework, or Homelink, is an integral part of the math program. It helps review and reinforce skills taught in class that day, as well as help build on upcoming skills.

The books sent home for reading homework are books we have read in class. Re-reading helps develop fluency and comprehension.

What temperature does it need to be for the students to remain inside for recess?      
Students will remain indoors when the temperature, with the wind chill, falls below 15 degrees Fahrenheit.  Please be sure your child is dressed for the appropriate weather.  Only in special circumstances may a student be excused from going outdoors.  A note from the parent is required at such times.  Extended requests must be accompanied by a doctor's note. (See also page 31 of the handbook.)

What do I need to do if my child will be bringing lunch money to school?
Put it in a clear plastic baggy or envelope with your child's name and purpose clearly labelled on it.   




What if my child has lost something (gloves, hats, boots, etc.) at school?

Check the Lost and Found, located by the front doors. Please label everything your child brings to school to assist it getting returned more quickly.

Is it okay for my child to bring toys to class?
 No.  Please refrain from sending toys to school with your child unless given special permission.  We have a wide variety of activities for students to use during both inside and outside recess.  Personal items tend to cause conflict or can be lost or broken.
