We are asking all parents to abide by our school procedure of <strong>NOT</strong> entering the school yard and remain on the parking lot side of the fence once your child has entered the yard. This is to ensure safety of all students. </p><p> </p><p>Year 2 students in Kindergarten will continue to be dropped off in the Kindergarten yard by the swing-arm gate and go to their classrooms as they did last year. <br></p><p>All staff will be out on the tarmac wearing vests at <strong>9:00 am.</strong> When the bell rings, teachers will escort all students into the building. Junior and Intermediate students will go into the Gym, through the gym doors and Grades 1-3 will enter through D1 doors and go into the Library where they will sit with their peers in grade groups.  Once everyone is in and settled, teachers will be introduced, we will have a few messages and reminders and then each teacher will do a roll call and take their class to their classrooms.  Teachers will not have class lists outside.  </p><p><strong>Dismissal: 3:35 pm</strong></p><p>Students will leave through their assigned doors (C1 or D1) which feed onto the main tarmac.  Again, we ask all parents to wait at the fence and <strong>NOT</strong> enter the schoolyard at dismissal.<br></p><p>Kindergarten students will be escorted by their teachers to the <strong>BOTTOM </strong>end of the fence by the painted agility track adjacent to the parking lot.  Parents, please park in the <strong>PARKING LOT  </strong>and <strong>NOT</strong> in the Kiss N'Ride lane.
