FRIDAY: End of Walking Club
ATTENTION PARENTS AND GUARDIANS:
After a successful season of Walking Club, this Friday (18th) will be the last day. Students will not be able to be dropped off at school before 7:45 because there will be no supervision. Your attention to this is much appreciated and keeping your child safe is our number one priority. Thank you very much.
