Drop-off and Pick-up
August 29th, 2015

We ask that you take great care during Drop-off and Pick-up times at the school.

We ask that you take great care during Drop-off and Pick-up times at the school.

With the increased number of families we must always be vigilant and ensure the safety of both children and adults.

Consider dropping off the children and moving away to facilitate others.
If you are parking please do so away from the school gates and drop off point.
Consider using the Mass Path which has been upgraded by the local Development Association for those children who can enter school independently.
And for those children old enough, independent and close enough to the school why not walk or cycle?

Remember the safety of our children is a priority for all of us.
