School Hours Playground Policy

No Dogs on Campus
Please do not bring your dogs to campus. This is a school policy and signs are posted. We have had a significant problem with dog waste on our fields and campus and it is impacting our PE and recess programs. It is also important to provide a safe environment for those with allergies and animal fears.
