Dropping Off and Picking Up Your Child

  • If your child needs to be picked up during the day, please try to do so during the nutrition/activity blocks at 11:55 a.m. to 12:35 p.m. and at 3:05 p.m. to reduce classroom interruptions.
  • There are 2 designated pick up times at the end of the day.  For the safety of our students and to ensure teachers are aware, you may pick up your child at 3:05 or 3:45.  Older students are asked to meet parents at the Dickson St walkers's gate.
  • Your child's safety is important to us. Please call the office before 2:30 p.m. to let us know you are picking your child up or send a note in your child's agenda if you are making alternate pick-up arrangements.
  • Parents are to use Dickson Street (at the back of the school) to drop off and pick up their child. Our bus zone is on Herbert Street (at the front of the school) and for the safety of our students, we must keep the two areas separate. Using the staff parking lot to drop off or pick up your child makes it very unsafe for our students.
