Food Drive:
Our Christmas Food Drive starts on Monday, December 3rd and runs until Friday, December 14th. We will be donating items to The Helping Hand Bradford Food Bank. Suggested items include pasta and sauce, soup and crackers, cereal, snack items for school lunches, granola bars, and baby food.

Students can bring in non-perishable food items anytime over the course of the next two weeks.  Families are invited to bring an item along to the Christmas Concert as ‘admission’ as well.

Thank you for your support!

Winter Weather:

As the temperature continues to drop and the snow begins to fall, please send your child with a hat, warm gloves or mitts, a winter coat and snow pants.  Extra mitts and socks are also encouraged for the cold, wet days.   Students are outside for forty minutes at lunch, so it is very important that they are dressed appropriately.

In the event of inclement weather, Rock 95, Kool FM (107.5) or Big FM (101.1) will announce the bus/school cancellations on the radio. Please do not call the school for cancellation information.  The following are the procedures for safe arrival on “snow days”:

1. If buses are cancelled and your child takes the bus, you do not need to call the school.

2. If buses are cancelled and your child walks to school, it is at the discretion of the parent whether it is safe for your child to walk.  If your child is a walker and is not going to attend school, it is the responsibility of the parent to either call the school or complete the on-line safe arrival form and report the absence.  The safe arrival program is still in effect on snow days and it is crucial that you report your child absent if he/she is a walker.

3. If buses are cancelled in the morning, that means that they are cancelled in the afternoon as well.  Please do not drive your child to school and expect him/her to be returning home on the bus.

4.  Hot lunch and pizza days will remain in effect if the buses are cancelled.
