No Dogs Allowed At Parent Pick-Up

We love dogs! In fact, over the last several years, we have partnered with an amazing community volunteer group named "Reading With The Dogs". Each week, emergent readers are paired with therapy dogs and their handlers to read together.  

We realize that dogs are a true member of many of our families. They go with us everywhere. However, for reasons of safety and security, please do not bring your dog into the school or allow them out of your car at any time. We have received several concerns about dogs coming to parent pick-up each afternoon. If they make they trip with you to the building, please leave your dog in the car.
