Primary School

A Note From Principal Darah Bennett

Primary Families,
We are having students let out of their cars in the morning well past the orange cones in the first and second-grade line. This is a huge safety concern for us. Please do not let your students out of their cars until you reach the orange cones. We need you to pull all the way forward to let your child out. We have staff outside to assist your child in the building.
Thank You,
