Important Notices for All Parents

Safety & Health

As a reminder, we have a Safety & Health blog where we share safety and health information. Be sure to check it out on a regular basis. You can find the blog HERE.

Yearbook Photos

Our yearbook photos are now complete for this session. This year we had our in-house team take the photos and it was a huge success! Also this year, we will be giving away electronic copies of the photos at no cost. To collect your or your students' photos and class photos for elementary school students, please bring a flash drive or external hard drive to the school office. A staff member will then download copies onto your disk. Please use the elementary office for elementary students, middle school office for middle school students or high school office for high school students. You can collect photos from 17 November 2016 until 9 December 2016.

There will be a re-take opportunity for any missed photos in February.

If you have any questions, please email:

ICS Directory

The ICS Directory was distributed earlier this week.  There is one directory per family and was delivered to the youngest child in the family.  If your family did not receive a directory, please email:
