Please Protect Our Children.
Recently several students have stepped in dog feces while on recess and subsequently tracked it back into classrooms and on play equipment. If you frequent the school with your animals, please consider the safety and well-being of our children, and use the refuse bags provided to pick-up after your pets. Thank you for being a caring neighbor.
