NOTE REGARDING  UNPLANNED EARLY DISMISSALS

Sometimes, beyond our control, there are reasons that students may be need to be sent home early from school. (ex. Weather, power outages) As you can well imagine, this is a very chaotic and busy time for everyone at the school. To ensure that your child arrives home safely, with someone there to meet them, it is necessary to make a call for each of our 195 students.

The moment the school is aware of an unplanned closure, we will send out a voicemail/email/text from the school informing our families. As well, each homeroom teacher makes calls until every family is contacted.

To make this process as efficient as possible and for the safety of our students, we request that you only call the school if you have been left a message requesting that you call the school with instructions of where your child is to go. Otherwise, lines get tied up and the process becomes slowed down. Often, we only get notice at the last minute, so time is imperative.

Thank-you for your understanding and cooperation in making an unplanned early dismissal process a safe and efficient one.

50th Annual Harvey Music Festival​ Week ~  April 22, 2018 - April 27, 2018. 

The Annual Harvey Music Festival is celebrating its 50th year!  It will be held at our school from Monday to Friday, the week of April 23rd.  We love having visitors to our school during this time, and at any time, and have a few requests in regards to parking.  At certain times there are a lot of visitors at one time.  We place pylons out to show the boundaries where it is safe to park.  To keep our students safe, and to keep our emergency roadways open, we kindly ask that you park in designated areas only.   Please park behind the pylons and do not pass through them.  Also, you may park at the rec center and walk down through the path to the school.  We do have a two wheelchair accessible parking spots closer to the door if that is required. Thank-you for your cooperation! J
