Parents are asked to have children follow the same routine everyday. Any changes to this routines causes disruption to everyone. Any special after-school instructions should be given to children in writing before they leave for school in the morning. If they will accompany a friend on a bus there must also be a separate note for the bus driver with information containing details about where s/he will disembark and with whom the child is traveling. Children wishing to visit friends after school must make arrangements the previous day. Students may use the office phones for emergencies only.
