Safety

The safety of your children is our top priority.  A partnership between the home and the school is important if we are to build the following safety habits:

    1. STUDENTS SHOULD NOT ARRIVE BEFORE 8:30 A.M. as we do not have staff on duty to supervise before this time.  Exceptions are for those children who eat breakfast at school and those children who are participating in before school instruction, clubs or music programs.
    2. Cross only at crosswalks.
    3. Refuse to enter or approach strange automobiles.
    4. Proceed directly home after school.  
    5. Be considerate of small children.
    6. Stay out of the street while waiting for the bus.
    7. Wait for the bus at your bus stop unless other arrangements have been made with transportation.
    8. Students using the crosswalk must wait at the designated spot until signaled to proceed, then cross when directed.  All walkers must walk directly home and avoid playing on the playground or in the street.
    9. OBEY SCHOOL SAFETY RULES AT ALL TIMES.
