Allergies

Please be aware that a number of students in our school have life-threatening allergies, most commonly to nuts. Please avoid packing nuts and nut products in your child's lunch.

Attendance/Punctuality

We appreciate your help in ensuring that your children attend school punctually and with minimal absences. Last year we experienced a high number of late students daily, resulting in a great deal of disruption to their learning, their peers and teachers, as well as extra work for office staff.

When you know that your child will be absent, please assist our office staff by leaving a message with the student's name, homeroom and the reason for absence on the absence line at 403-777-7995 Ext 1.

Student Drop Off/Pick Up

Please do not use the parking lot to drop off or pick up your children. There are signs in the lot to this effect and police may issue a ticket for failing to obey them. The volume of cars in the parking lot has caused a number of dangerous "near misses" for our students, and has caused problems for our school busses as they enter and leave the lot.

There is ample street parking along Hidden Valley Dr. and Hidden Ridge Cl. on the north and east sides of the school.
