PARKING IN CUL-DE-SAC A new school year has started and with that, the challenge of finding a parking space at drop-off and pick-up.  Please remember to keep the area at the end of the cul-de-sac clear so that vehicles are able to turn around safely.  Please also remember to park legally (please check signage) and as close as you can to the vehicle in front to ensure maximum space is available for the next vehicle.  The underground parking at the North Shore Winter Club is also available as an option.
  8. SIGN-IN and OUT A reminder to parents to please sign-out your child at the front desk when picking them up early.
