The staff of West Royalty Elementary School would like to take this opportunity to welcome you back to another school year. A very special welcome is extended to Kindergarten students and their parents and to all other students and families new to the West Royalty Elementary school community. We have extended our school day by 15 minutes this year (starting 10 minutes earlier and finishing 5 minutes later). The majority of our students are here at school by 8:15 a.m. anyway. As a result, this change really only impacts 1 or 2 buses. All buses will be operating on the regular times like last year for the first week and a half to two weeks. The Transportation Department at the English Language School Board will be looking at these two late buses during this time, and devising a plan to get these students here earlier in the morning. We will send out notices to those students impacted with a change in time when the changes are ready to be implemented. For those parents who drop their children off, please drop them off anytime between 8:00 a.m. and 8:20 a.m. If you are picking your child up at the end of the day, pick-up time is 2:35 p.m. We are thrilled to be opening our doors again on Tuesday morning, and can't wait to see everyone again. We look forward to making the 2015-2016 school year exciting and rewarding for all!
