June 15 & 16th Changes to Parking Lot

On June 15th and 16th, the Simon Wiesenthal Centre’s ‘Tour for Humanity’ expo bus will be at St. Andrew’s JHS and all our gr. 7 and 8 classes will be taking part in the presentations over the course of the two days..  As the bus is quite large, it will be positioned in our large staff parking lot but parents/guardians should still be able to circle around when dropping off/picking up students.  Staff will need to park in the back of the school playground area which means that this area will be off limits to students for these two days.  The back field can continue to be used.
