Day families,</p><p> </p><p>I am writing to make you aware of a situation that is currently affecting our school property.</p><p> <br>Due to flooding conditions we had to close our west yard entrance today until contractors were able to pump out the catch basins. To ensure the safety of our students, their families and staff we re-routed access to the yard through the east entrance.<br> <br>We will monitor the situation daily and open the west entrance on days it has been deemed safe for our school community.<br> <br>Thank you for your patience and understanding. We will update you with any further details as they become available.<br> <br>Sincerely,</p><p>K. Fennell <br>Principal​</p><p>​</p>
