    School Safety Announcement: 

    dw Dogs on Campus Reminder
    There are many of us that are huge dog lovers, but we ask that you please keep your dogs off of school property. 

    ALLERGIES - There are a number of kids that are allergic to dogs. Some of the kids forget that & are drawn to the cute dogs. They pet them & then extremely bad reactions start. This happened last week & the poor kid went home with swollen eyes that remained that way all night.

    SANITATION - The kids play in yard areas all around the school & we need to keep the yards free from waste. You may utilize the new dog waste stations before or after school hours.

    ANXIETY - There are some kids who do not like dogs & it creates anxiety.

    Thank you so much for thinking of the kids & keeping your dogs at home.
