New for Lunch This Year at Fountaindale
For the 2017-2018 school year there will be a change in practice for having lunch at school with your students. Parents, guardians, grandparents, and significant others will not be permitted to come into school and eat lunch with their children. This change in practice is to support the safety of all students and to minimize the disruption that occurs in the main office over lunch. This change also eliminates the issues that surround custody with students that school should not be party to. Lunches may still be dropped off for students to pick up during their lunch period.
Parents who have volunteered in the school in the morning prior to lunch, or have made arrangements to volunteer after lunch may have lunch with their children. This will be the only exception to the rule.
Short Road is Now One Way!
Parents will no longer be able to turn right out of school and left onto Short Road.
Parents will not be able to park on Short Road to have their children as walkers at the Northern Ave. doors.
Please be mindful of these new road restrictions when planning for your child's arrival and departure from school.
