The playground and school grounds are unsupervised before and after school hours.  Please plan for your child to arrive at school no sooner than 9:00am unless they are attending a supervised club or activity.  Children are expected to leave campus at dismissal per their parents' daily plan to ensure parents know where they are after school.
