It has been mentioned both to students and parents the importance of having a scent free school as we have students and staff for whom scented products create serious health concerns. Sadly, even after multiple messages, some students do not take this very seriously and use strong perfume, deodorant or cologne. Moving forward, if a student or a visitor in the school is found to have such product on himself or herself, the person will be asked to go home to wash or change his/ her clothes. If this become a recurring problem, other measures will be put in place to ensure the safety of all. We all have a part in trying to make the school a safe place for students and staff. Your cooperation in this matter is much appreciated.
