Off- Reminder to
review our school newsletter for drop off procedure in the morning. All
students that are getting out of cars and going onto the playground alone, must
be dropped off to the duty teacher in the morning which is at the far end of

students often get out either side. Parents wanting to walk students onto the playground

playground. Please share the information for drop off and pick up with
