Schoolyard Safety

Parking 

A reminder to all families that we continue to hope that you are able to encourage your child to find a healthy and safe way to get to school in the morning and home again at the end of the day. Given that all of our families are within walking distance, and for everyone’s safety, we work to reduce the automobile congestion at the front of the school by asking that you not use the parking lot or the ring-road for student pick up or drop off. We also request that you do not use the parking lot or the bus loading zone in front of the school for dropping off or picking up students. We ask that you respect the signage that is in place around the school and make arrangements with your child that helps to keep everyone safe.

Pets

We love pets too! However, it is our goal at NLW to have all students and staff feel that the school environment is a safe place for everyone. Safety comes first at our school, and for that reason we are once again asking all families to respect our policy that pets are not allowed on school property during the school day (and that includes time before and after the school day bell times.) This would include pets that are unleashed, leashed or held by owners. If your pet must to come to school, please meet your child off school grounds.

Supervision

Students are supervised on the playground for 15 minutes before the bell (8:15-8:30) and 15 minutes at the end of the day (2:50-3:05). For the safety of our students, please ensure that they do not arrive before 8:15 or remain after 3:05 p.m. Thank you for your cooperation.
