- Use of Parent Lounge for Lunch

It is wonderful to see families sharing lunch in the Parent Lounge after school, but we would like to ask that you plan on leaving the school by 1:15 PM.  This is the time the Aftercare children are transitioning into their rest and we want to make sure the school is quiet and calm for them.

Thank you so much for your cooperation.
