It is now time for students to dress for the weather. In order to keep track of boots, jackets, hats and shoes, please take the time to label all your children's belongings. We hope this will help reduce mix-ups!
WALNUT PARK is a “SCENT AWARE” SCHOOL
Our school is designated as a ‘Scent Aware’ school. For the health benefit of all staff and students we ask that all visitors and staff refrain from wearing strong scented perfume, creams, etc. Signage is posted at our main doors. On behalf of our Health & Safety committee and those sensitive to scents, we thank you for your attention to this matter.
Messages for Students
At times we field many messages from parents to their children. We are trying to minimize disruption to classes as much as possible. We appreciate your help and support with this. If messages are unavoidable, please call before 2:45 so that we will have time to deliver them.
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!
Student Led Conferences
We are having Student-Led Conferences on Wednesday, April 17 and Thursday, April 18. Parents are reminded that students will be dismissed one hour early on each of these days (2:05 on April 17th and 12:00 on April 18th). Buses will run at the early dismissal time. The conferences enable students to demonstrate their learning and show their parents samples of work done over the past term. It also gives parents an opportunity to talk with their children about their learning and to discuss goals for the final term. Information about your conference time will be going home with your child this week. If you have any questions, please contact your child’s teacher directly.
Mondays & Tuesdays from 12:30 to 3:00 pm; and Thursdays from 9:00 to 11:30 am
An extra Wednesday session from 9:00 to 11:30 am is scheduled for the remainder of the school year.
Exceptions to this schedule throughout the year will be posted on the Facebook page.
