Lost and Found: We have numerous winter clothing items in our Lost & Found. Please encourage your
child(ren) to have a look and claim any of their belongings. Parents are welcome to stop in and check the
Lost & Found as well – it is located in our front foyer under the stairwell.
Parking at Front of the School: When coming to school to drop off or pick up students, outside of entry and
dismissal times, please do not park in front of the school, unless you are in a parking spot. We need to keep
this area clear for Emergency Vehicles and our Special Education Needs vehicles. We appreciate your
support with this.
Safe Arrival: Our school day begins at 9:15 a.m. Please ensure that students are here on time to start the
school day! We would also ask that if your child is going to be absent, that you call the school and leave a
message on the Safe Arrival line!
Parking Lot: We would ask that parents/guardians please follow the directions of our staff and student
safety patrollers on duty in the parking lot, before and after school. We are providing direction in the
interest of student safety. We would also ask that our disabled parking spaces are not blocked. The parking
lot will be closed from 3:20 p.m. – 3:40 p.m. each day to ensure minimal traffic on school property during
dismissal time. This is to ensure the safety of our students. Also, when coming to the school during school
hours (including break time), we would ask that you park by the office and the side of the building. Please
be cautious when driving on our neighbouring streets to ensure student/pedestrian safety. South Simcoe
Police and By-Law officers have informed us that they will be monitoring our school neighbourhood
regularly during school entry and exit times.
