School News

School starts at 10:00 am on Wednesdays.  Free YMCA care is provided here at school from 8:45 until school starts, but you MUST come in and sign your child in every Wednesday.

Here are a few helpful tips when it comes to recess here at Minter Creek:

  • We go outside if at all possible, unless it is a torrential downpour.  Please send your child in appropriate clothing and shoes.  Rain jackets and boots if it’s raining, and warm clothes if it’s snowing.

ust a few reminders about our pick up and drop off routines:

  • Please pull all the way forward.  If you want to watch your child walk in, or walk them in yourself, please park in a stall.  This keeps our line moving quickly and efficiently.
