School Hours Playground Policy
Please remember that during the school day, campus is for our enrolled students only. Younger siblings or children who do not attend Woodside School cannot be on campus during our school hours to play. Please alert caregivers of this policy and contact Principal Petrea if you have any questions.

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.
