Arrival at school:

We ask that students arrive as close as possible to bell time, unless involved in an activity supervised by a teacher.  Doors are opened at 8:25  in the morning at which time students may place book bags, etc., on the boot rack and then return outside (this is not possible this year due to COVID-19 restrictions).
