If you are new to DGH or your child has reached the age where they are allowed to sign out for lunch, some of the basic information is provided below. A letter will be going home with students soon after school starts with more detailed information.
• students will be permitted to sign out to go to the stores/restaurants or their own home for the 2nd Nutrition Break/Recess only.
• students should NOT be travelling any further than the 4 “corners” as there are no stores or restaurants beyond this point. In NO case should students be playing by the river or playing around the bridge as this represents a serious safety concern. As well, the area around the arena is also out of bounds.
• if your son/daughter is going to be allowed to sign out and visit the stores/restaurants or their own home on a regular basis (e.g., any day of the week), please provide a note stating that they will be allowed to do so. Please include your child’s name, your name, and the date in neat and legible handwriting. A list will be compiled from these notes and kept at the office.
• if your son/daughter is only going to be allowed to sign out once in a while, please write a note and indicate that it is only for that day that he/she may sign out. Your son/daughter should bring the note to the office at recess and leave it beside the sign in/out book in a neat pile with the other agendas that are there.
