After/Before School Play in the Schoolyard

Greetings Parents/Guardians,

We are very excited that our schoolyard has been renovated and is now available for use. There is a beautiful track, line games and play equipment (slides, climbing, etc).

Please be reminded that outside of school hours, after school dismissal, before school arrival, weekends and so forth, while the schoolyard is open to the public, as with any park, you must supervise and watch your children. YOU are responsible for your child’s well-being and safety, and must take steps to ensure the play area is safe for your child.

I also ask that you remember it is our community schoolyard. Please take care of it by throwing away your garbage and not littering.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

Parent Letter – No Double Parking

Double Parking Letter for Parents 2019

September 9, 2019

Dear Parents/Guardians:

School safety is a shared responsibility of all members of our school community. Arrival and dismissal are crucial times of the day when all parents dropping off and picking up children from kindergarten through fifth grade need to be aware of and considerate of students walking to and from the building. Please abide by the law and park in a legal parking space, and then walk to and from the school to pick up your child. Do not double-park your car. Double parking creates a dangerous situation for children and parents on the surrounding block(s).

It is for the safety of our children that we need to follow these rules and never put your child or another child in unnecessary harm’s way. We greatly need and appreciate your cooperation.


Gregg Korrol

Principal and our School Safety Committee
