Student safety is one of our highest priorities. Therefore, we make every effort to ensure that all students are under appropriate supervision until they return to you at the end of their school day. Unfortunately, it has become apparent that a minority of parents are bringing their children early or collecting them late from school quite frequently. For this reason, we are concerned about these children who are left without supervision.
We would like to remind you that school starts at 9:00 am. However, we offer a grace period from 8:30 am to 9:00 am for some students who come early to stay in the gym. Elementary students finish school at 3:00 pm, at which parents must collect their children. We offer a grace period from 3:00 pm to 3:20 pm in order to co-ordinate with the schedules of some high school students who are responsible for their younger siblings.
We do understand that sometimes there is an unexpected emergency which will delay a parent, and we will try to accommodate this only if that parent regularly picks their child at the allocated time. We have allocated an extra period of time in the morning between 8:30 am and 9:00 am and after school from 3:20 pm and 3:30 pm for parents who are late.
Please note that the school will no longer be responsible for children left at the school before 8:30 am and left after 3:30 pm.
In case of an emergency in which you will not be able to arrive on time, please call the school to inform us. The students will be placed in the “Study Room” (near Staff Room).
We would like to thank the parents for their continued support and understanding, and kindly ask all other parents to adhere to school policy and regulations.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at 613-727-5066, or come and see us.
