  • No Dogs on School Property: For the safety of all our students, please do not bring dogs on school property when dropping off or picking up kids. Not only are many young children anxious around animals, but dogs can cause unsanitary conditions especially in the areas in which children enjoy recess. The safety and well-being of our students is top priority and we appreciate your assistance and understanding.
