Welcome Back Cedar Drive!

Welcome back returning students and families and a special welcome to the students who are new to our school.  We look forward to engaging our wonderful learning community! We sincerely thank everyone for their kindness and patience as we enthusiastically embark on a new school year! Thank you for keeping our students safe as we maintain our circular driveway and parking lot protocols. School buses and staff traffic are the only vehicles permitted in our lot during entry and dismissal times. This ensures we keep traffic to a minimum  in our immediate vicinity.   Please look for regular emails through School Messenger alerting you of important events and information.  Please also continue to check our website for Council, Trustee, School and Board updates  throughout the year. We look forward to an exciting year of teaching, learning and engagement for all!
