Note to parents about Classroom Supervision during Lunch
During the student lunch time from 12:15 - 12:30 students in each elementary classroom will be supervised by a parent volunteer.
Educational Assistants that assist individual students with needs in these classrooms are also present. Middle School students will eat in the cafeteria under the supervision of a parent volunteer.
At the lunch play break, students are supervised by Educational Assistants as is the usual practice.
All of the parent volunteers have had the appropriate criminal record checks. The principal is also present at all times to maintain the safety and security of the students.
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact the school.
