Welcome Back!

​We are excited to greet our students this week at Lou MacNarin School.  Please remember that Kindergarten has a staggered entry with some students starting on Tuesday, some on Wednesday, and some on Thursda,y with all students on Friday.  We will be starting with a new safe arrival system at the school.  Parents will no longer be calling into the school to report an absence.  Rather, parents will contact School Messenger to report  an absence and the reason that the child is not at school.
