  1. If you are dropping off an item for your child, please inform the school secretary and your child will be called to the office to pick it up or someone in the office will bring it to your child. Please do not bypass the office and go to the classroom to deliver it yourself. This disrupts the classroom routine and student learning.
  2. Please always inform the school secretary of the purpose of your visit and where you are heading. Please do not sign-in and leave the office without speaking to the secretary. At times, the office can be very busy and your patience is greatly appreciated.
