Telephone Calls and Forgotten Items

Due to the importance of classroom instructional time, phone calls and/or items left for students will not be routed directly to the classroom. However, as a courtesy, if you do need to leave something for your child, label the item and turn it in to the front office. The item will be placed on the pick-up table by office staff.
 
PLEASE NOTE: It is each student’s responsibility to pick up the items left for them in the office. The school is not responsible for lost or stolen items. For this reason, we strongly suggest that parents and students double check their preparedness and communication prior to the start of school each day rather than rely on drop offs.
 
Phone messages to students will be delivered as soon as possible to the classroom by the main office. Part of the development of student responsibility is dealing with the consequences of forgotten items. PE clothes, lunches and assignments will not be delivered to students.
