Meet the Staff Night Mark your calendar for our annual “Pie Night” on Wednesday, September 20 (6:00 – 7:30 pm) when parents, students, and staff meet on a social basis over coffee and pie and ice cream. The event is informal and helps to establish a comfortable communication bridge between home and teacher.
Teachers will be in the gym for the early part of the evening and then in their classrooms, so you will have opportunity to meet them socially, as well as to visit your child’s classroom to see the learning environment. Please read our September 15th newsletter for full details.
SCHOOL PARKING LOT – PICKING UP and DROPPING STUDENTS OFF
Please comply with the “no parking” signs along the sidewalk in the drop-off zone. In the interest of safety and to minimize congestion in our parking lot, please only stop briefly to pick up or let your children off. If you need to leave your vehicle, we request you make use of our parking lot. Thank-you for your help with this!

Safe Arrival To assist us with our Safe Arrival procedures, parents are requested to phone the school after 8:00 am if a child is going to be absent or late. In doing so, we can be sure all children are accounted for. In the event that your child is absent and we have not received a call, the secretary will attempt to telephone your home, your workplace, and your emergency contact(s) to confirm the whereabouts of the child.
Strong Start News Strong Start started on Monday, September 11th. Our weekly schedule will be Monday to Friday from 9:00 am to 11:45 am. Exceptions to this schedule throughout the year will be posted on the Walnut Park Strong Start Facebook page.
